  • INF error on 1st login after installing SP3 for XP

    After installing SP3 for XP the following error appears during the first login of a non-administrator. This occurs while the "Personalizing Settings" box appears on the top left corner. This occurs when "Personalizing settings for Windows Media Player" appears:

    Advanced INF Install
    INF install failure. Reason: Access is denied.

    The only option is to click on OK. After OK is clicked the Personalized Settings continue and the desktop appears. Subsequent logins by the same user are error free and there are no entries for this error in the event logs. If a new user logs in for the first time since the SP3 update the same error appears.

    Can anyone assist in determining if this error is benign? Also, how to correct for future installs.

    Many thanks in advance for any assistance.
