SP3 and cryptography service

Recommended Posts

Guest adv

Since windows updates installed SP3 on my Windowes XP box, Cryptography Service stopped working.

I tried unregistring/registring, used dial-a-fix, but nothing seems to work.

And I cannot uninstall or reinstall SP3, as it complains that Cryptography Service do not work.

Please, help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you have any anti-virus, firewall or security suite software installed?

Norton anti-virus. My logs shows that Cryptography service went bust the day after SP3 was installed.

Norton I had dor a while.

Completely remove and uninstall Norton. Use SymNRT to get rid of it. That should help you repair Cryptographic services.

removed. Restarted, run dial a fix. Still did not work.

Event viewer is completely unhelpful.

The Cryptographic Services service terminated with the following

error:

The specified module could not be found.

Explore C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 and see which of the following files exist.

This is every single file that may or may not be present on your system that has anything to do with the Cryptography service (or is used by CryptSvc).

You may not have a few of these files and that's OK. Just let me know a list of ones you do not have.
