Windows 7: How I Solved Error 2203

13 Apr 2014   #31

windows 7 x64

As someone else mentioned: where is c:\windows/installer? I have 150 'installer' files in my Windows 7 64-bit. But no file just named "installer". Maybe that's my problem with getting an error last time I tried to install vaio care.

After a Microsoft update some 6 months or more ago, I was no longer able to use Paint Shop Pro software, nor another graphics software. I also cannot use WinZip, cannot download pdf files from the internet, IE crashes when I open files. So I'm trying to fix a bit at a time and thought this may be the cause of at least the problem with the installer - but annot locate a file so named.

I think I'm better off reinstalling Windows 7 and not connecting to the internet with this computer.

Hi azhot, welcome to the forum :)

In my small business I have 5 PC and 2 laptops.
The 5 rigs have never been connected to the web (one beast is 2003 XP) and all are clean ... still.
The 2 laptops are specifically for internet connection, only. emails, surfing and downloads, and virus/malware scanning.

Best arrangement I ever made. The only problems I get are the internet connected machines.

Thank you thank you thank you! I could not update my JAVA (wisely or unwisely I decided to update it because certain things were not working right online), and I spent 2 hours trying various methods recommended by Oracle and other sites - all to no avail. THIS worked for me! Problem solved! Thanks again!

Okay maybe I spoke too soon... YES, the procedure above fixed my Windows 7 problem of not being able to update to the newest Java.
BUT now my Windows Update quit working.
I'm only assuming that it had something to do with this, maybe it didn't but it seems awfully coincidental that after I did this I am not not able to update Windows via the Windows Update utility.
Here's what happens:
I choose the updates I want to install and then it just sits there for 30 minutes saying (paraphrasing here) "0 percentage of 7 updates downloaded".
I tried just downloading ONE 3mb update and waited like 5 min. and still nothing. Normally a 3mb download would be done in under a minute.
So it seems to me my Windows Update is broken for some reason...??? and I can only imagine it had something to do with the above, as it was working a week or so ago.

Hello, it is more than likely not your computer.
There is a huge influx of Win 7 operators with slow update issues.
Take a look.
