A previous EE quoestion suggests to ignore the patch:
Are you experiencing this particular as outlined in the Fix?
If not - then don't bother installing the patch.
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
I get repeatedly asked for credentials and tyen get a 401.1 error.
This is from a client computer not from the server itself.
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Have you got .NET framework 2.0 installed on the server? (extract from the KB Article)
You must have .NET Framework 2.0 installed before you apply this update.

ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
I have indeed
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Is the client using IE8 to browse?
If so, please add the companyweb to the Local Intranet Site (IE, Tools, Internet Options, Scurity Tab, Local Intranet, Sites, Advanced - Add http://companyweb.
Does that resolve the problem?
If it does, please flag the update to be ignored from Windows Update.
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
No it doesn't fix it.
I get a 401.1 from the browser on the server itself, 403 from the browser on another computer on the LAN
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Have you updated to Sharepoint 3.0?
If so, can you have a run through the following article and report back (particularly the last post):
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
I haven't gone to 3.
I wanted to get it working as is rather than introduce a whole new complication.
However if it will be easier to fix by upgrading to 3 first, then I'm OK to do that...?
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Not suggesting that you upgrade - just enquiring if you have already.
Everything points to having moved Sharepoint's location.  Do you recall having moved it? (Not sure how or why).
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
If you mean the home directory - the companyweb home directory is moved yes. It's on the bigger D: drive as I was running out of space on the system partition.
I thought it had been working since then and I copied the permissions etc.

I can run through all the permissions against the old directory (that's still there) - or is it some other aspect of moving it that you're thinking of?
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
I think the move has upset the default location and somewhere in the system it is looking for a file that has been moved.  Are you able to move it back then try the update again?
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
I'll give it a go
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
Still get a 403
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Have you moved it back and installed KB961143 successfully?
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
I have - and now instead of a 401.1 I'm getting 403
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Okay - so the patch has been applied.
Separate problem now.
I think the best course of action now is to remove and reinstall the companyweb site by following the attached document which should resolve this issue:
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
That will have to wait until later this evening.
Many thanks for the help so far!
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
No problems - I am not surprised you are not rushing head-long into that one!
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
Yes I'm going to read that one through a couple of times before I start on it, and make sure I can give it due attention!
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
Well that was interesting!
It reinstalled in D:\inetpub!
So I searched the registry, found some keys set to point there and changed them to C:\inetpub\companyweb and moved the directory from D: to C:. Also changed the home directory in the SharepointCentralAdmin site properties.
Then the machine had SP3 waiting from Windows Update so I let that install.

It works! Many many thanks sir.
I had already done the reinstall but clearly it was the reg keys that made it reinstall in the wrong place.

Thanks again for all your help
ATOCONSAuthor Commented:
A couple of things there so I've split the points across them because one wouldn't have worked without the other
