This usually happens if your Windows Installer is not working properly.

To correct, do the following -- click Start, then Run, and type the following:
%systemroot%\system32\msiexec.exe /regserver
then click OK.

After this, run the install again.

3.XP, MSN Explorer, MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger

Hi! Hopefully someone could help me... My problems began 
when I started to get Windows update number 329834. My 
computer got the message to download it almost everytime 
I started the computer (for two weeks or so). I kept 
downloading it succesfully and thought no problem. Then 
last week suddenly I couldn't sign in MSN Explorer or 
Messengers anymore and I haven't changed any of the 
settings. I can't get any Internet Explorer updates nor 
Windows updates. Windows update gives me this number 
0x800B0004 - I have tried to follow the instructions from 
problemshooting but haven't found a working solution yet. 
I have also tried to change my internet settings 
to "lower security" to enter the sites, but no help. I 
have scanned my computer for virus, but everything is 
okay. I'm using netscape now, because it allows me to 
sign into my hotmail and other sites I couldn't use when 
using IE, thou to update Windows I need IE, which is not 
working. I have unistalled and reinstalled IE, MSN 
Explorer and Messenger, but I still can't accsess Windows 
updates. Is my only hope to backup my files and reinstall 
the whole system?
Thanks for any help!

5.Getting canned for brining forth obvious security breaches

Dear Colleagues:

At the tail end of this post is my original post with regards to this
matter.  Basically, I went and told my superiors that our network was
seriously exposed.

Today I had a meeting and, guess what, it was suggested that I find another
job.  This is great, essentially having the dipshits at work side with a
completely ignorant person who knows nothing about security.

Guess what industry I work in?  Education!

Thats right folks, education.  Maybe the people who are in education need a
bit of it themselves.

And we wonder why our system is so screwed up!

Curious George

Dear Colleagues:

For the life of me I don't know why I have to ask this question since the
answer is so obvious, however, I need to have others tell me that I am not
completely insane.

I work at a place where we have a myriad of wireless access points and NO, I
am not writing from there at present.

NONE of the wireless access points has any form of security on them
whatsoever.  No WEP, no CHAP. . . no nothing.  Everything is open so you
could walk into our joint, grab an IP address and surf the web to your
heart's content.

Here is the problem.  My boss insists that its "no big deal" and that since
the servers are on the inside and protected, we really don't have a thing to
worry about.  Furthermore, my boss is under the impression that since we are
situated in a wide area, that nobody would be able to get into our network
because of this distance.  Needless to say, my boss does not consider
somebody sneaking into a parking lot with a laptop, a good network card and
a directional bazooka antenna a possibility.

So here is what I have to explain to my boss' boss and, perhaps, the board
of directors. . . and here is where I can't help but laugh.  I hope that I
will be able to keep a straight face come Monday when I have to explain
myself to people why its important.

Okay, so I know the analogies.  For example, I understand that not having a
secure wireless network with many Waps and high gain transmission antennas
is the same as putting cables out to anybody within 'x' amount of yards with
a sign that says "free internet access", but since I am going to be asked
these obvious questions, just what type of damage could somebody do?

Yeah, I know about denial of service attacks, yeah I also know about
enumeration and password guessing, but considering that we have an SQL
server on the inside of our network (no, the sa account password is not
null) what are we talking about.

I can envision so many things.  Like somebody just sitting there caputring
packets to get things like usernames, passwords and the like, but come on. .
. what else could they do.

I have read my boss the riot act many times, but this is now going to go in
front of somebody over my boss' head, so, aside from giving them worst case
scenarios, end of the world analogies, etc., how else could people break in.

Creative responses are appreciated and will be rewarded with much praise.

I can't believe that I have to actually explain this to people, and this
entire thing would last about two seconds when it comes to talking with a
computer professional, but you see, my boss is under the impression that
they are a computer professional because they received a Master's degree in
Comp Sci back in the 80's.  I know that this line of thinking is dangerous,
but I really want some creative answers to put my point across strongly, and
yet professionally.

Although I realize that this post will likely be the butt of many jokes
(which I will appreciate immensely) I never the less would appreciate a bit
of useful information in your responses.

I am going to have a serious drink now, and then bang my head against the
