I have been having problems trying to install SP3 from Windows Automatic Updates.
Each time I attempt to install the service pack, it proceeds through the installation and half way through it I receive an error that says "Access Denied", then it rolls back.
These are the things I have tried to do, to fix the problem.
1) I have tried manually downloading SP3 and installing it = did not work.
2) I have tried http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315341
= it did not work.
3) Download and install SubInACL
a) Click on Start > Run > type in Notepad and press Enter.
b) Copy and paste the following content to Notepad. Then from Notepad click on File > Save As > change the file name to RESET.CMD and change the file types to All files. Save the file to C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools folder. (NOTE : This is the same folder for the downloaded SubinACL)
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f
subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f
c) Go to Start > Run > type cmd and press Enter. Type CD C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools. Once it change the directory, type reset.cmd and press Enter
That did not work.
Does anybody have any other ideas.
