So here's the deal-- I just got rid of a virus infection (thanks to this awesome website) and my computer's still a little messed up it seems. My device manager wont open with the error message "MMC cannot open C:\WINDOWS\system32\mgmt.msc this could be because it does not exist (it does, i checked) or was created by a later version of mmc. This may also be because have sufficiant rights to access the file" I know i have all rights so...

I have some sort of idea, that by running sfc i replaced the new version with an older one... in this case... how do i update MMC?

and if this is impossible, what should i do?

I want to do a repair reinstall.... but i dont have an installation disk- just a recovery disk... I really am tired of this computer---

It apears that you have installed SP3 on your computer.
Well you may have to re-install SP3.

You can eliminate lots of questions about your computing environment by doing providing more information.

Click Start, Run and in the box enter:

msinfo32

Click OK, and when the System Summary info appears, click Edit, Select All, Copy and then paste back here.

There will be some personal information (like System Name and User Name), and whatever appears to be private
to you, just delete from the pasted information.

Here is a MS article I found with a Google search about your MMC issue:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914231

What exaclty does your message say when your update fails? Maybe something to do with 0x8007007E?

There are several reasons why the update might fail and different solutions, so more details are better.

alright, reinstalling service pack 3 didn't help with either of the problems. I now have the error code for the update fix though, it's 0x8007045A. Googleing it found nothing but regcure adds, and i'm not sure i want to pay for somthing that might be a scam. Looks like I might have to buy a usb hard drive and do a full system reformat... kinda sucks...

If there's any alternative, let me know. I dont have the installation disk so a repair install isnt gonna work... any help is appreciated.

Did you try the MS link from earlier?

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914231

Googling your 0x8007045A results in another very similar MS article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/836982

and many other articles with the same theme (most with happy endings), but I usually try the ones that come out on the top of the search first (if they make some sense).

I went to Google and entered:

0x8007045A

and clicked Google Search.

Are you able to provide the requested msinfo32 information?
