When I try to install a Microsoft fix I receive the following error message.

“Setup could not verify the integrity of the file Update.inf. Make sure the Cryptographic service is running on this computer.”

I have tried various changes and modifications such as 1. Expanding the NT5inf.ca_ to NT5inf.cat, then coping it over to the system32\CatRoot and Dllcache folders. 2. Renaming CatRoot folder to OldCatRoot and restarting the server. Neither had worked.


Also I noticed that when I try to do a windows update I receive an error that basically states the following:

 “Software Update Incomplete. This windows update software did not update Successfully”

I have done what was require (which was to go to KB 319585) and it still does not work. This problem is occurring on 3 of our Win2k Advanced servers.

NEED HELP TO RESOLVE!!!

I am having the exact same problem. Did you ever find a resolution? My windows 2000 advanced server has the same problem, I have tried similar fixes. Most of the help is for people upgrading XP to service pack 1. This is not help. I first noticed the problem because I could not create an encryption certificate for my server. Then I realized I could not go to ssl websites, i could not run windows update and i could not install Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 - To top it off, all my iis services crash with unexpected errors, is this related?

I get.

I fixed it. I installed the Windows 2000 High Encryption pack:

and now all my updates work.

P.S. I first got a second opinion on my virus scan (Norton Corporate) and went to trendmicro's online virus scan and found 2 running virus process and reminants of a SQL worm that we had last year.
