I upgraded from Windows 2000 professional to Windows XP professional since
then I am unable to install any drivers and some programs even though they
are XP compatible and work on my other XP professional machines I read
article number 822798 which discusses this problem and asks me to rename the
Edb.log through the command prompt when I type in what they ask me to I get
the response "unable to access..... in use by another program..." nothing
else is running and do not know why this is the case. I have current drivers
that are compatible with Windows but after I go to the process of installing
them they just not become installed.

Hello Jason,
Be sure you are looking at the correct sub-folder. The log file at issue is at CATROOT2 not CATROOT.
This one is folder referred to %systemroot%\system32\catroot2\

If you do have that Catroot2 folder, rename it to something else, like OLDCAT2.

From main Windows Start menu, select RUN, type in
CMD <Enter-key>

type in
net stop wuauserv <Enter-key>
net stop cryptsvc <Enter-key>

Do your cleanup now.

Go back to Command prompt window.
type in

net start cryptsvc <Enter-key>
net start wuauserv <Enter-key>
EXIT <Enter-key>
