KB977165 update issue Feb 2010

A desktop system running XP Pro was dropped off in my shop on Wed with a boot loop that wouldn't even boot into Safe Mode, I searched Google and found the fixes below!


1. Boot from a xp disk-->r for recovery console

2. Type this command: CHDIR $NtUninstallKB977165 $\spuninst

3. Type this command: BATCH spuninst.txt

4. Type this command: systemroot

5. exit

Next I downloaded a rootkit cleaner from Kapersky 

This cleaned the offending malware and allowed me to re-install the MS update!
