    While trying to install Windows Service Pack 2; I get the following error
    "Unable to read from or write to the data base"

    Can anyone tell me what's wrong?

    The quickest and most thorough way to solve this problem is a batch
    file, written

    by fellow MVP Torgeir Bakken from Norway. Reboot the computer and, before

    running any other program, run the batch file. It will tell you when it
    is finished.

    Here it is: fixdb.bat
