This is usually caused by Windows XP Servicepack 3.
Before you uninstall it, try to get the latest driver for your WLAN card/stick and see if it fixes the problem.

One option is to use System Restore to a time prior to installing SP3.    Then create a restore point before reattempting SP3 install >

Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.

Conceivably you'll need to look at updating your router firmware (if you're running a router).

Hi all,
I fixed my PC and here's how I did it:

I tried system restore to Nov. 1 and that didn't work. I then tried system restore Oct. 18 and that didn't work either. I then uninstalled SP3 and rebooted PC. All kinds of updates started to download and my PC froze. I had to hard PC and uninstall SP3 again! I then rebooted and updates started again and SP3 downloaded right and the error message is gone!

Yipeee!!!
Thanks, Kathy
