Hey Bill, I'm unable to remove older versions of java since Windows installer doesn't seem to be working, says it can't be accessed at this time, and might because the system is running in safe mode etc.. etc...
Tried still running the scanner except that nothing comes up after i check the box and press start. I was using IE 6, so I tried dling 7 but then installation couldn't be finalised because apparently the Cryptographic service wasn't running. Went into Services and double clicked on it and an error came up saying it had been marked for deletion... I figured perhaps it was due to Active X being disabled, so then I enabled in via internet options, but still nothing comes up.
Symptoms I'm having: No sound,
can't copy and paste,
windows installer doesn't work,
can't turn off system restore,
slow boot up
when I minimise programs, they don't minimise onto the task bar
When I go into msconfig there's a few dodgy looking start up exes: RTHDCPL.exe KHALMNPR.exe ALCMTR.exe
Checking Task manager, there's multiple svchost.exes running.
