Hello-

I just installed XP Service Pack 2 on a properly functioning computer. Most things still work fine. However, I am unable to use Intuit QuickBooks 2003. When I try, I get the following message:

"QuickBooks Centers
QuickBooks Centers is unable to locate a critical file. Please re-install or update QuickBooks installation.
OK"

Then I get:

"Warning
This file was not closed in the previous session. Rolling back to last fully recorded transaction.
OK"

Then:

"QuickBooks
QuickBooks has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience...
Send Error Report/Don't Send"

I went to the Intuit site and downloaded the latest upgrades for QuickBooks 2003 but that did not fix the problem.

I tried re-installing Quickbooks from the CD and I get the following message:

"Set up failed to launch installation engine: The RPC server is unavailable."

The intuit site suggests that my situation may be caused by the "W32.Blaster.Worm"

Please help. Here is my Hijack This file:

I'd say Blaster worm is extremely unlikely, but there's a quick and easy way to find out.

Download and run Stinger. It should return a small log that you can post here in your next reply.

I think you're right about the blaster worm. All the info on various websites indicate that its heyday was in the 2002-2003 timeframe. I ran that stinger program and it didn't find anything. Here is the log:

McAfee AVERT Stinger Version 2.5.6 built on Aug 16 2005
Copyright © 2005 Networks Associates Technology, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Virus data file v1000 created on Aug 16 2005.
Ready to scan for 54 viruses, trojans and variants.
Scan initiated on Wed Nov 23 18:58:05 2005
Number of clean files: 194960

Since I posted my initial problem, I found several other programs that did not function properly. For example, Norton Internet Security and the Yahoo browser my wife uses with our DSL service. So, I removed service pack 2 and everything works great again. My plan is to try SP2 again someday but not until I get the latest updates for all my software. I think my computer will ultimately be safer with SP2. Does this sound like the right thing to do?

Thanks...

I think that was your best option for now. Here's how I would proceed with installing SP2 if I was faced with your situation.

1. First, visit Windows Update and install all updates found for your computer up to, but not including SP2.

2. Download the latest drivers for all of your hardware. You can get them all at one place from Driver Agent. Make sure you save a copy in a safe place in case you need them later.

3. Visit the websites of all the programs that you are having problems with...Norton, Quickbooks, Yahoo, etcc... Download the current installation file for each and save them for later.

4. Now uninstall all of those programs that you had problems with. Also uninstall any programs you don't need or don't use anymore.

5. Clean out all of your temp files. Probably the easiest way to do this is to download and run a program called Cleanup 4.0

6. Run a good registry cleaner to clean out any orphaned entries from your registry. If you don't have one now, you can dowload a trial version of Registry Tuneup from http://www.acelogix.com/regtune.html

7. Run Scandisk to check for errors. Go to My Computer and right click on Local Disc. Select Properties and then click on the Tools tab. Under Error Checking, click Check Now. It was ask if you want to do this on your next restart. You do.

8. After Scandisk, defrag your hard drive. Go My Computer -> Local Disc -> Properties -> Tools -> Defragment Now.

9. Reboot your computer.

10. Install SP2.

11. Now re-install Norton, Quickbooks, etc... Also install any updated drivers for your hardware.


This should take you to where you need to be, which is definitely with SP2, without any problems. For more info you might want to take a look here.
