I new I saw this before ,been awhile ( It's your Cryptographic Services is disabled)

Right-click My Computer and press Manage.

Expand Services and Applications.

Double-click Services.

Double-click Cryptographic Services.

Make sure that the Startup Type is set to Automatic and that the service is started. If not, set it, press Apply and OK. Shutdown and restart Windows XP and retry the update.

If the update still fails, go START ,RUN,and type= CMD.EXE
copy and paste it in =whats below ,on those 3 lines.

net stop cryptsvc
ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 oldcatroot2
net start cryptsvc

and hit enter .

But you need to see if your Crypto serv. was turned off.
thats why were doing this first.

If that service was shutoff ,your not going to need anything below
after you've turned it back on .

There was alot of SP2 beta hacks running around from June on
were they extracted DX9.0C out of the beta ..don't no were you got yours from ...try downloading it again from here : ... laylang=en

If you think you have a good copy then try this:
DirectX Eradicator 1.09 Beta 2

It will remove all traces of Direct X ,,so you can start over fresh.

And if none of that works ,then we go to Unsigned non-driver installation ,in the Group Policy ,there are 2 settings in that .
1) Do not allow installation
2) Warn but allow installation
Mostly this only happens with uncertified drivers.
Then i will update you on anything else. In this post.
