error ID: 0017-80040240 RRS feed

  • Question




    I'm trying to install Windows Live OneCare on a computer running XP SP 2, plenty of ram, hd space, etc.  During installation I get this error ID: 0017-80040240.  I just installed this last night on another computer in the house without a single problem.  I've uninstalled the previous anti-virus software and I have disabled the firewall.  I have tried restarting the computer, redownloading the installer and downloaded the installer fix offered on Microsoft's download page.  However; nothing NOTHING seems to be working!


    What does this error ID: 0017-80040240 mean?  Can anyone help me?  I've looked all over the internet and in this forum and I haven't been able to find this error ID anywhere!


    Thank You!!!!
