My computer has been acting weird for a while. Here are some of the problems: unable to install some windows updates like dot net framework 2.0/3.0 and pretty much all the security updates, internet explorer crashes intermitently, while loading some most software I get a windows data cab failure causing the install to stop, and to top it off my anti-virus software will not update. All this was happening for a while so I decided to format and start new. So, I did that and my crazy computer still does the same stuff. Where do I go next. The computer has an EPOX mother board, athlon 64 3700+, 1.5 gb's of RAM and 200gb sata hard drive.

Did you locate and install the most updated drivers for your hardware after installing XP and SP2? You can check this by going to Start...Run...and typing in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and pressing Enter. If you see any red x's or yellow !'s - it's likely that you're missing some essential drivers.

Check the hard drive?

Check Event Viewer for clues?

I agree with hamluis - either something's missing, something's broken, or there's some malware in there somewhere. The Event Viewer is the first place to look.

Try downloading and installing the latest version of Windows Installer.
