I just recently installed a windows installer hotfix from microsoft.com. I doubt that this fixed the installer problem. It' keeps returning a message saying "There is a problem with this windows installer package. This may indicate a problem with the package. The error code is 2908." I found out that it means that it is having a problem registering components. I also cannot run disk check without it saying "Windows was unable to complete the disk check". When accessing MSCONFIG, I get "An access denied error was returned when attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes." Also, I cannot stream movies through my web browser for very long without the sound, video, or both completely cutting off unless I close the browser and restart...At which time it does it again in another couple of minutes and affects even offline video and sound on my computer. Also certain programs and games that I used to be able to run with no problem suddenly won't run without severe slowdown or hanging completely. Also, I cannot access my bios (F2) from the boot menu!! That's all I can think of for now. I'm also getting help with this from Myrti in a separate topic but through the suggestion of the guide for "Dial-A-Fix" I made this one also. I've already used programs such as Spybot S&D, MBAM,Superantispyware, Winpatrol, scanned online with Panda, scanned with A-squared, I also freed up over 4gb of space by deleting unneeded items and apps. The following things I have already done with Myrti: OTL, Win32kdiag, Sophos, Rootrepeal & GMER (which both froze my entire system and I had to unplug to restart). My system information is: Windows XPHome 2002, Service Pack 2, Intel Celeron 2.8ghz, 248 RAM. If there is anything I'm leaving out please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
