Hi Folks


If anyone has an idea of why these 2 programs refuse to install on this DV6 laptop running Win7 and fully protected, I would be very interested to hear from you. There is no problem on my Vista or other Win 7 machines.


Skype almost completes but then comes up with various error messages (which unfortunately I don't have with me at the moment) and LIVE almost completes and then says that it couldn't update one component so will abort the whole operation.


I have been through the computer and deleted everything related to Skype and have run SFC with nothing showing up.


Cheers, Rob

Turns out this problem was caused by corrupt System Files which Windows couldn't, or wouldn't, fix.

A reinstall did the trick.

Cheers

Do you have Norton products and is still within subscription? Then why not check if you can UPGRADE for free to the latest version! Visit http://www.norton.com/nuc.

Thank you. The reinstall seems to have fixed everything but I will be interested to read those.

Cheers
