    Service Pack 3 "Setup was cancelled"

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this. I had a naste rootkit that I was able to get rid of using tdsskiller.exe. I have tried register the dll's I have tried a repair I get the same thing. I have installed malwarebytes did updates found nothing, I used super antispyware, found nothing. I have ran AVG and found nothing. I think I have the system clean of all malware but I still get . Setup was cancelled.
    I have also tried to install IE7 but it fails.

    This is what I did and it worked great.

    Rename c:\windows\system32\spupdsvc.exe to c:\windows\system32\spupdsvc.old and try again.

    Hi,

    This problem happen by a virus or if you have Xp sp3 and repair the windows with Xp sp2 CD. then you will not be able to install any update. i spent 2 months looking for a solution and i solved by re-activating the windows. after that it works like a charm and was able to install all the updates.

    Just give it a try and let me know

    When you do a clean install, I would suggest you slipstream SP3 into XP. Then you don't have to install SP3 after the initial installation. nLite is the easiest method I have found to slipstream a service pack.

    Agree with wullieb1 and Ossian.
    Even if there is no legacy crap there might still be traces around to get the rootkit back.

    Concur -- format and reinstall, so no legacy crap is left behind

    After a rootkit i'd be tempted to flatten and rebuild.

    I did run that but with no change. The strange thing is I didnt get a report as to what the command did or didnt do. But I do still have the same problem. Service pack 3 "Setup was cancelled" and IE still wont install.

    Try this.
    Start
    Run
    sfc /scannow

    This will scan for and repair any damaged System files. Try installing SP3 after rebooting once sfc has finished running.

    Let us know if this works.
