SFC /scannow

By elwin9 ·
IE6 and windows in general won?t let any access to the internet once it is connected. I tried to reinstall IE6 and it says there is a pending install of IE6 and you need to restart. Do that and the same message appear again? I tried to do a SFC /scannow and it asks for the CD which is SP1. I tried the original XP Home and it wanted SP1 so I put the CD in that SP1 was installed from and still it was the wrong CD. SO this type of scan cant be run. Is there a Registry hack to get rid of that pending install for starters?

This behavior can occur if another program is running in the background when you attempt to install Internet Explorer.

To resolve this issue, restart your computer by performing a clean boot, and then reinstall Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type msconfig, and then click OK.
Click the General tab.
Click to clear each check box except Load Static VxDs.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
When prompted, restart your computer.
Restart Internet Explorer Setup.

I think this should solve your issue....

rgrds,

If the previous steps doesn't work. you can try by these registry settings and reinstall the IE 6.0.


Follow these steps:

While you are logged on as an administrator, click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate the appropriate registry subkey, right-click the IsInstalled (REG_DWORD) value, and then click Modify.

To reinstall only the Internet Explorer 6 browser component on Windows XP, use the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}

To reinstall only Outlook Express 6 on Windows XP, use the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}

Change the value data from 1 to 0, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor, and then install Internet Explorer 6.


Hope this will work.,

I am sympathetic with you, I just went through the same thing with Windows 2000. Went well with the W2kSP1 cd and then asked for SP4, which I had on a CD, but it was a compressed file and it couldn't be read. I ended up skipping and it said I may need my cd for SP4 later but I didn't. There has to be some way to extract this compressed file to a directory and then make a CD for SPxx. I will investigate and if this is still open, report my findings.
