Belarc Advisor and sp2 hotfix problem

  Eargasm 22:51 17 Nov 2004

Hi All

Although i haven't as yet installed sp2 i have some sp2 updates on pc,one update is kb828741 something to do with rpc/dcom.

Every time i run sfc /scannow on pc then check belarc advisor it reports that the above hotfix has failed verification and needs to be reinstalled,after reinstallation it is reported ok,but fails verification after using sfc /scannow everytime.

Can anyone advise ?

The updates you have already are nothing to do with sp2 proper they were labelled as sp2 but are updates for sp1

I discontinued using Belarc Advisor as I found it to be unstable. I now use Sandra by SiSoft and find the Free version to be an exceptionally comprehensive product providing all the functionality that I need. You can download it from using this URL click here

If you do install sp2 it will most like upgrade all the updates and add its own so the ones you had for sp1 will be outdated.
