Patching desktops can be a pain, but you should try dealing with Novell 4.x servers.

Several guidelines..

Start from a cold boot, turn off any programs you do not need, firewalls, antivirus, mp3 playa, etc.

Make sure you have admin rights to the machine.

Make sure you have installed previous patches, some new patches are relying on the last patch already being there.

Some MS stufp doesn't work, maybe due to your driver/hardware setup, the MS Malicious program removal kit still won't install for me - probably because I won't turn off my AVP

Yes, check your permissions first, then post the problem.

That is prolly a good thing, too.

I've been thinking about your dilemna...

The only logical explanation I formulated was since you are using an "illegal" copy of Win3.14159WhateverTheHellItIsNowadays, it won't let you update to the "newest" SP.
The older one, prolly b/c they weren't really conerned about "pirates", or weren't thorough enough back in the good ole dayz.

I think what you got running is incompatible with the SP. (Can't authenticate some kind of crazy Microsfty way).

thats why u get a new pirated copy of windows with service pack 2 included. not that i would have done something horrible like that. It wont let u manually dowload the updates, but if you put it on "automatically download updates", it will get them just fine. not that i would do smth like that...

http://winhlp.com/WxSP2.htm

"Recent press reports indicating Windows XP Service Pack 2 will install on pirated or illegal copies of Windows XP are not entirely true," said a Microsoft spokesperson. "Instead, prior to installing, SP2 will check the OS' product ID [PID] against a list of known pirated PIDs. If a PID is found to be invalid, SP2 will not install." This behavior is essentially similar to that of Windows XP SP1.


Less help, but still:

You can prolly post there, that you are having trouble logging in as admin or whatever.

a liitle bit off topic, but do u guys get that annoing windows authentication pop up or smth like that. I just blocked it with my zone alarm hehe. It basically pops up and says that u might have a pirated copy and that u should contact microsoft or the vender. So i called microsoft and they sent me a new legitamate copy. omg that last sentence was such a rediculos lie, i am sorry lol
