I have been having several problems when trying to install programs after the download. Constantly getting the Error! Can't initialize plug-ins directory. I searched this problem online and tried disabling each plug-in and trying again, and still the same error. Also, Firefox keeps crashing, and works very slow at times - I have reset it twice. I thought the first time helped for a couple hours, and then it started crashing and running slow again.


Also, after cleaning up my machine form adware etc. one of the errors I get is "Setup can't create directory" this was while trying to run a program. So I am wondering if something is configured wrong.


Finally, Flash Player is not working properly. I always get error "Video is unavailable" when trying to open a youtube video. I have tried to uninstall Flash using their uninstaller, but cannot run the uninstaller, and as well get the error Can't initialize plugins directory. I tried other uninstaller programs Revo, and Soft, and same message Cant initialize plugins directory.


ANY help, ideas are welcomed and appreciated.
