I cant remember how it originally happened, but i had to reformat and install twice, and then the computer had updates and restarted in the middle of installing fsx or something i believe. When i eventually had removed all files and registry files made, i tried to reinstall again. I now get the error that is in the screenshot below.

No infection on my PC, files are completely gone, disk is in pretty good condition although a little scratched; but it works and installs on other peoples computers. HJT Logs i have analyzed and appear fine to me at the moment.
I'm happy to provide you with any logs etc.


I'm using Windows XP SP2 (Not sp3, stupid thing caused one of the Formats i had to do.
I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 fully updated hourly, with Spybot S&D with full immunization enabled.
I also understand that it may be nothing to do with the computer, but instead my hardware.



Any suggestions?

(I wont need to post MBAM logs, they are clear :thumbsup: )




Kind regards,


James

Followed the instructions, however it didn't work. I did restart etc.

It might also be interesting to add when i click ok and it starts rolling back, i get this error...

Thanks for trying, any more help?



Edit: Having looked, that file isn't in the Cabinet file, so it may well be the CD and my DVD reader, however laptops and desktops i have tried don't seem to have any problem at all :thumbsup:.

Hmm, if you tried that and had no success, and after completely deleting all the files with the game, including the registry files, I'm really out of ideas, sorry :thumbsup: . Maybe someone else can help, or if you become desperate enough, microsoft support (have fun calling them, being put on hold, then being transferred five times) is a last resort.

I was thinking that, but it will copy files from the cd and the file that its requesting (the ones with all numbers and stuff like a md5 hash or something) isnt there... so it wouldn't go onto my computer if i copied it and i would have the same problem surely?

When you say you removed registry files do you mean manually?
