:whistling: Today the automatic update ended up with the system error 'RTHDCPL.EXE Illegal system DLL relocation. The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\HHCTKL.OXC occupied and address range reserved for Windows System DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.'

I restored the system to the previous change but the update is waited to be being reinstalled... I'm not sure if I want to install the update if its going to cause the same problem listed above again. Did anyone reupdate after restoring? Did you have any other problems?


Thanks

Click start, control panel, security centre to turn automatic updates off

See if they revise the update before getting it again

You can turn automatic updates on just ahead of next weeks usual updates if you want to

What about the fact I have the update waiting to install? Just ignore it for a week? Then install everything that follows after it? And if there's still a problem restore the system and try again? Should I really turn off Automatic Updates since it would leave my computer unprotected? Or should I just go for download options and choose when to install?

Cancel the update as there seems to be a problem with it, you should also be able to visit Microsoft Update and remove the tick for it

In security centre there is an option to change the way you are alerted for automatic updates so you won't get the shield in the tray, if you reboot after doing this it should run without wanting to install the update

Updates outside the monthly updates are rare so checking Microsoft Update manually once a day would give the same thing, you should only need to do this until next week at the latest

Set a restore point just before downloading any updates next week

Leave the box ticked so it is offered when they revise it

Click start, control panel, security centre, at the bottom of the panel on the left is change the way security centre alerts me, click that and remove the tick for automatic updates, click OK then reboot if the shield hasn't gone from the taskbar

Hello every body
I update in two computers but I got the problem of relocation only in one, so I fixed it (system restore in safe mode). I have two questions: 1) In the computer with the problem (fixed at least) shall I turn off the update and wait long as one week? 2) Are there possibilities that the other computer (without dll relocation) could be infected?
Kind Regards

You could turn the update off and check Microsoft Update each day
