Hi…

When I switch my PC on at some point fairly early on loading I have noticed this message

Windows could not upgrade the file %1 from %2
%1 : %2

Continuing to loads Windows

This message is on the screen for a flash then continues with loading up, I only noticed this the day after I was unable to create a restore point… As this had only happened on the 2nd of this month I tried to do a restore too a couple of day’s before, with no success…
Right or wrongly :thumbsup: I pulled the plug; after 3 hour while restore had appeared to have locked up ie: from the restore screen waiting for the progress bar to move, nothing…

On re-booting scan disk started and found

You receive a "Windows could not upgrade the file %1 from %2 %1: %2" error message after you install a new program or update a program on a computer that is running Windows Millennium Edition

In the beginning there was the command line.

:thumbsup: This morning I must have forgot to click "Add Reply" before I went out...


I don't have a master CD of Windows ME as it was all pre-installed when I purchased this PC from new. Since then I've had Windows ME Re-installed when I had to have a new 80Gig hard drive fitted, now I have a C Master & D Slave

I've also found a floppy disc with "ME bak Emergency Start Up" wrote on, but for the life can't remember when I made it, ie: before or after the new hard drive.

It has the following files on it.

Hi Grinler

:thumbsup: Grinler

From the link that through a error unable to locate the requested article.
In the search box, I just type in 283069 which took me too a page with two option. I recommend any one else trying this to print the instruction out first...
With the "ME bak Emergency Start Up" floppy disk; Method 1 has done the trick :flowers:

As for item 19, I have know idea which program caused the error in the first place and couldn't find :inlove: "Symptoms" section.

As all seems well now, i'm just going to tread carefully for a few days...
