how to uninstall update kb90905?


J

J David Ellis

When the xp sp2 system, running on 2gb of ram, repeatedly
displayed message "Insufficient System Resources Exist to
Complete the API" during an attempt to hibernate, i
installed kb90905.

the update "fixed" the problem by removing the hibernate
feature. pressing the shift key in the shutdown dialog box
no longer changes standby to hibernate. the power management
dialog box no longer offers hibernate. i could have
accomplished all this by simply not using the hibernate feature.

unlike the numerous updates for other purposes, this update
left no evidence in control panel's add or remove programs.

how do i remove it?

I think you are referring to:
The computer occasionally does not hibernate and you receive an
"Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API" error message
in Windows XP with Service Pack 2, in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005,
or in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909095
and not kn90905?

Did you restart the computer after applying the Hotfix?

How much RAM memory do you have?

Open Disk Defragmenter and click on Analyse. Select View Report and
click on Save As and Save. Now find VolumeC.txt in your My Documents
Folder and post a copy.

Sorry about the typo.

Yes, i did restart the computer. The computer has 2GB of
RAM. The disk defragmenter analysis report follows..

Thanks for chiming in, Gerry. I hope you can help me restore
the hibernation feature.

Do you ever run Disk Defragmenter?

Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk CleanUp to
Empty your Recycle Bin and Remove Temporary Internet Files. Also select
Start, All Programs, accessories, System Tools, Disk CleanUp, More
Options, System Restore and remove all but the latest System Restore
point. Run Disk Defragmenter.

See if that has any affect on the ability to Hibernate.

The first time disk defragmenter ran on the Dell Dimension
8400 the hard drive dropped dead the day before a monthly
backup. Dell sent a technician out to replace it. The new
drive has never been defragmented.

Before i proceed with your thoughtful and thorough list of
maintenance suggestions, i'd like to be sure i've given a
clear description of the problem:

The feature named "hibernate" has been removed from the
system by the hotfix. The problem is not an inability to
hibernate because of how the data are arranged on the disk.
The problem is there is no way to start hibernate. Whether
hibernate might succeed is another topic.

I must have missed the text in KB909095 where Microsoft
explains the hotfix solves the problem by removing the
hibernate feature. :=)

I think your suggestion to use system restore to get rid of
the hotfix is probably the most expeditious solution. Then
follow your instructions to clean up the drive.

I am not sure whether the Hotfix took? You could check the version
numbers in your System32 folder =C:\windows\system32\dllcache. The file
details are in KB 909095.

Go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options, View, Advanced Settings and
verify that the box before "Show hidden files and folders" is checked
and "Hide protected operating system files " is unchecked. You may need
to scroll down to see the second item. You should also make certain that
the box before "Hide extensions for known file types" is not checked.
Next in Windows Explorer make sure View, Details is selected and then
select View, Choose Details and check before Name, Type, Total Size, and
Free Space.

Further research shows the Hotfix 909095 replaced copies of the files
provided with the SP2 update. However, Security update KB 931784 in
February 2007 with file version 5.1.2600.3093. I now think that
installing the Hotfix after KB 931784 was a doubtful move given that the
original version the Hot fix was intended to replace has already been
replaced.

You should be wary about using Sysystem Restore until it is clear
whether the Hotfix did install.

KB 931784 was not installed, so i visited
update.microsoft.com and chose 'express.' forty updates are
now installed, including 931784.

before reading your "wary" heads-up and before installing
the 40 updates, i used system restore to get rid of hotfix
kb 909095; the hibernate feature reappeared and i've had no
system problems.

thank you for your patient, thoughtful and thorough help.
it's time to go see what havoc 40 updates hath wrought. :=)
