Trouble installing Service Pack 3

Inactive
By Mona22
Nov 19, 2012
  1. I have an HP Pavillion desktop a600n with XP home service pack 1. I'm positive there are viruses and/or malware on my computer and I tried to install TrendMicro Titanium 2012 edition but it said I need the latest service pack. So, I downloaded Service Pack 3 and when I tried to install, I received the following error:

    the file C:\windows\system32\drivers\ndis.sys is open or in use by another application. close all other applications and then click Retry.\

    I read the thread about the the 4 step preliminary instructions but I did not attempt to follow them because I was uncertain if they would even install on my computer since it doesn't have service pack 3. Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I apologize if this is in the wrong section.

    Malwarebytes installed but won't open. And Avast wouldn't install. I hope these files aren't useless in the absence of the Malwarebytes scan. Also, my computer refuses to let me get into the techspot forums, the actual website works but not techspot.com/community, I have been posting from my laptop.

    Oh my. This should be better for us to be able to clean the computer:

    OTLPE + Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

    • Download OTLPENet.exe to your desktop
    • Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
    • Ensure that you have a blank CD in the drive
    • Double click OTLPENet.exe and this will then open imgburn to burn the file to CD
    • Reboot your system using the boot CD you just created.
    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
    • As the CD needs to detect your hardware and load the operating system, I would recommend a nice cup of tea whilst it loads [​IMG]
    • Your system should now display a Reatogo desktop.
    Note : as you are running from CD it is not exactly speedy
    • Insert the flash drive with FRST on it
    • Locate the flash drive and run FSRT
    • The tool will start to run.
    [​IMG]
    • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    • Press Scan button. It will do its scan and save a log on your flash drive.
    • Close out of the message after that, then type in the text services.exe in to the "Search:" text box. Then, press the Search file(s) button, just as below:
      [​IMG]
      When done searching, FRST makes a log, Search.txt, on the C:\ drive or on your flash drive.
    • Type exit in the Command Prompt window and reboot the computer normally
    • FRST will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive and also the search.txt logfile, please copy and paste the logs in your reply.
