Got a problem with a pc running XP, it's got a Fresh clean version of XP Home installed.

I was planning on never using it on the internet, as its only going to be used to run a power point presentation.

However I need to update office 2003, now here is my problem,

When running Microsoft update I get an error code: Ox8024D007

I have tried running the Microsoft fix it tool, No joy
I have reset internet explorer, No Joy

I don't want to go down the route of another install of xp, as i don't see how this will solve it, as it's a fresh clean install any way, and also because I don't have office 2003 pro to go back on it.

Any ideas?

If the FixIt (Windows Update Agent) doesn't work then download IE8 to a USB pen, install that, then go to Automatic Updates, install the first set, then go back to normal updates and that should clear it for you.

It "can" be a pain where you have install Service Packs separately etc, but let me know how you get on and I'll let you know.

Currently Installed Memory: 512MB
Total Memory Slots: 2

0x = hexadecimal smile

When searching for a result there is a huge difference between a Letter and a Number wink

What Service pack is XP Running ?
Download sp2, sp3

service pack 3 there is no option to uninstall service pack 3.

Also I would try another fresh install but i dont have office 2003 to put back on it, as my disk has file missing.

And it wont let me do fresh install, as when i try to boot from cd, my keyboard does not work untill pc is booted up, so i cant press a key to boot from cd

Get a ps2 Keybaord.

Sometimes in the Bios Settings you can enable USB Keyboards for Booting up.

Modern BIOS allow by default. But it wasn't always that way smile

512mb Ram should be ok with XP

If you have installed 3p and you only want to run run power point.

Office only Install Power Point.
No Need for you do do any updates from MS.
