Hello all! New member here!

Okay... here's my dilemma...

I recently tried to install a new game on my PC and was told that I needed to update my DirectX from 9.0b to 9.0c. When I attempted to do this, I received the dreaded "Windows XP Logo Testing Failed!" message. While trying to alleviate this problem, I discovered that "Cryptographic Services" is not listed in the menu found at Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services. After a good bit of research and a couple attempts at recommended "fixes", I still cannot access this service. As far as I can tell, all the CRYPTSVC components are there, although I'm not sure if their registry settings are correct.

I REALLY could use any and all help with this problem! Thanks in advance!

My system specs...

HP Pavilion 513n

1.8 Gb HD

512 Mb DDR RAM

Windows XP Home SP 1 (The problem I'm having won't let me update to SP 2!)

Very Simply,

If you've not upgraded to SP2 - then M$N will decry your request for the 9.0c upgrade.

Or get a "Mac" or go to "Linux" or.... Heh, Heh, Heh

So, if you're having problems "upgrading" to SP2, then maybe you need to peruse the
HJT forum and submit a log there. You might have some problems you are not
aware of...... or you have programs on board that are not compatable with SP2.....
check in on M$N site for the non-compliant programs.
