I posted before with one issue, but it's spiraled to several so it warrants a new post plus it's been a few days? I recently updated to service pack 3. The two mains problems are windows explorer crashes when a folder is opened and Installshield is not working claiming "access is denied". Windows automatic update isn't working either so I updated manually to sp3. I tried a system restore and the problems persist. it is making tasks agrivating.

Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time of the Installshield errors.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all the categories.

If you find an error that occurred at the time right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here.
