I need some inspiration here guys ..
I have a cousins laptop here, she is a student and put it up to me to try and sort as it had stopped working, well was on a serious go slow and error massages popping up all over the shop,
It is an acer 1350, the disc is split in 2 c&d, c was full and D empty, so I have moved all her files onto D and freed up the C drive, which helped straight away.
The drivers for the video and modem had gone, so I have reinstalled them, got them from the acer site.
Cleared the temp folder and defragged to tidy it up a bit, running very fast now, BUT
I keep getting a windows Update error, windows update has had to close down, do you want to send an error report. Cannot get rid of it.
The Laptop is running SP1, I have tried to put in SP2 but it is having none of it, also tried the security updat disk but it won`t go in either (my theory was this has a new version of windows update and might fix the prob). AOL is installed on it but when I connect to the net I get system32 errors, which is the same as I get if I try to install SP2.
I have switched off windows updates but still get this error, pops up every 2-3 seconds, a real pain in the ar$e, goes away if I go into taskmamnager and end the windowsupdate though !!
Been working with it since 7.30 this morning and getting very p`d off to say the least.
Any Ideas, anyone know where the reg key is, if I delete it will it solve it., She doesn`t use the laptop for the internet as her student flat has no phone, though it was used for the internet last summer so A virus isn`t out of the question ?
Sorry for the big post, but PLEASE HELP ME BEFORE I GO INSANE !!!!
