Clever me thought renaming Catroot2 folder to old , I think I tried
renaming it as Old.Catroot2 by adding the Old. before the Catroot , just to
help things along before I installed Windows XP 2 Update , even though the
edit was supposed to be just Old before the Catroot .
Well there is no Catroot2 in the system32 folder now and I think there
should be !
Maybe I don't need it but I think I probably do .
Nonetheless , will someone tell me how to restore the folder please .

Reboot and the system will make a new CATROOT2

Hi

Why did you rename that folder in the 1st place - problems with Windows
Update? Right click on it and rename it to the original.

Yes , I couldn't get Windows Update to give me any updates .
The first update scan went to a ' problems with windows update ' page .
From there I found error 0x80248011 in a microsoft article but before I
found a microsoft article about error0x80248011 which did help me I looked at
posts here in the news group and someone had said to change some names to
empty some folders so I tried that first .
Later I found the article which showed me the Software Distribution folder
was too big and was about 5.1MB's larger than the 50MB's limit .
My computer would just crash you see .
Well now Windows has replaced the Catroot file anyway , probably when I
used Windows Update again or when I rebooted , but there it is in the
system32 folder .
Thanks for the help helps !
