Gday.
Don't know where the AVG came from. The 404 error is generated for almost anything and don't think you can read much into it.

See if we can update to SP3. Close IE and Firefox, Open Chrome, go > https://chrome.googl...bdenadd/details
On the right, > Click 'Add to Chrome", check it appears, top right tool-bar. close the download tab.

Click on the IE launch tab.
Copy and paste link for the SP3 ISO, instruction in reply #372, into the IE address bar. > Press enter, > Save file to the desktop.


Go to > http://www.7-zip.org/download.html Please download .exe 32-bit x86 7-Zip for 32-bit Windows. This will extract contents from the ISO.

Gday.
I extracted to a folder on the desktop then clicked on this file,
> Windowsxp-kb9369290-sp3-x86-enu
Files were extracted. a wizard offered to install SP3.
Completed, I am now going to restart to see what happens.

That was interesting.

1 minute delay at startup,
A very small windows xp logo screen.
a question screen say windows update was turned off, did I want to start it? Declined.
My normal screen popped up, but noticed Media Player had been installed, disabled.
Checked the system. Now shows, windows xp home, 2002, SP3.

Had a BSOD while throwing up IE tab also the other night its went not responding. Currently the BSOD is still up the memory dump didn't end and the hard drive activity is still ongoing. Error is Kernel_data_inpage_error win32k.sys - address bf870075 base at bf800000, datestamp 41107f7a and stop: 0x0000007a (0xe17e43c8, 0xc000000e, 0xbf870075, 0x2382c860)

Meant to say its a solid hard drive activity light not flicker at all. Please advise.

IE has caused the BSOD, so going to ignore it until we have SP3 installed. Please follow these instructions.
Restart the computer. if it boots OK, carry on, otherwise, post.

Do not use IE. Start Chrome click on this link, > Download - Microsoft
Save the file so you don't get it mixed up with any other.

Download and install 7-zip, > http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
right click the ISO file, > Highlight 7-zip, > on the drop down menu, click extract file.
In the save box that opens, > click browse icon, > select Desktop, > click make new folder, > (name, correct ISO) > click OK, > Click OK.

Please close any running programs, including browsers, virus protection, if installed. Then.
Open the (correct ISO) and click on, AUTORUN....19KB ...Aplication ... 14/4/2008, and follow the prompts.
On completion, if asked, say yes to turning on Auto Update.

Yes please. IE or IE tab is only needed to access windows update sites because they us ActiveX controls.
