I have Windows 7 enterprise with all the updates/service packs applied
When I try to update directx it complains about not being able to verify the signature of a cabinet file and asks to check the cryptographic services. http://i56.tinypic.com/10cvhox.jpg
I googled for that error and all links say to stop cryptographic services and remove the c:\windows\system32\catroot2 folder
I stopped the cryptographic services and when I try to remove that folder, it removes everything from inside that folder but the actual folder remains and I can't even enter it after that
When I try to remove it or take ownership it says the following:
c:\Windows\System32>takeown /f catroot2 /r /d y
ERROR: The system cannot find the file specified.
but the folder is there, it's just not accessible at all.
I ran chkdsk but it did not show any errors.
My question is how do I fix this so I can update directx?
