At Installing Devices Part:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe - Cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access this item.
At Registering Components Part:
Same errors, different files - RUNDLL32, rundll32, regsrv32 (too much of them, so i pressed enter until all the errors stopped popping.)
After that, it can't run msiexec (i think) so it didn't continue with the installation of tuneup utilities.
~Now, I can't access everything in the control panel, my desktop properties, command prompt, run (nah. i can't execute some apps anyway), system restore,
regedit. EVERYTHING. i mean, at least i can still use internet explorer. And the manage thingy after right clicking my computer.
> I was even admin when installing the pack. Now I have to format this thing again so I can use this properly. Yet, with the default windows xp pro OS, IE keeps crashing so i can't dl the service packs from microsoft.
So, I managed to get the event log for the setup:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Setup
Event Category: None
Event ID: 60055
Time: 11:18:21 PM
