I have set up logs to report on various problems with my PC. I have error messages with Windows installer (it pops up with the loading of my desktop and runs in the background but does nothing), drwtsn32.exe, MVcpl.dll, OSA9.exe, Intel DH error messages rule the page in event viewer, Microsoft .NET Framework telling me, "System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object" and "An unhandled exception has occurred in a component in your application" When the Windows installer and Microsoft .NET Framework errors are in the task bar their heading is 2 HP Photosmart Premier. Microsoft Word 2002 is telling me "This document could not be registered. It will not be possible to create links from other docs. to this doc. C:\...\hdv_src\startups_all.htm) but I can still use word and all its functions.
Most recent problem is Add/Remove is not opening and System Recovery reads it is missing? I really believe this all started when I downloaded and ran “HD Valet” to remove junk files on May 8th 2009. I think it deleted something this machine needed. I have logged many hours with HP tech phone support and they looked at my PC using remote access, they finally told me to do a system restore from my restore CD's. I really hope that is not my only option. Is it?
Always in awe of the help and answers I have seen posted here,

Windows can only sustain a certain amout of damage .
It sounds like your installation is beyond the point of recovery.
You could turn off System restore & try doing a XP repair but you would be further ahead to delete the C partition & start with a fresh, clean, install.

Doing a repair won't gaurantee you won't have problems afterward.

Did I post this in the wrong forum? This is the first time I posted. I am sorry to hear that you think I should do a system restore. I have read everything I can on Do you have a virus and I do not fit any of the examples. I am not skilled enough to repair the mistakes on my own. I really feel that if I could get some one to look at my logs, like posting a hijackthis log maybe there might be a differnt solution for my PC than system restore. As I said this is my first time here and I am just now reading Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log. I hope it will tell me how to do that. Thank you so much for your quick reply. I am just not ready to wipe out my C partition drive yet.

". I have logged many hours with HP tech phone support and they looked at my PC using remote access, they finally told me to do a system restore from my restore CD's. "

Like I said, sometimes a reinstall is the only way to get everything fixed.

It's obvious that isn't what you want ti hear but sometimes it's simply the only fix.
