I just re-installed windows yesterday after a crash.  I have windows 7 home premium with sp1 32 bit.  It was working ok yesterday after reinstallation.  This a.m. windows did about 120 updates and since then I can't install programs from disks.  I have tried, Roxio, word perfect and quicken and get various error messages.  First one was to install isscript, which I did, then I got another error and now is giving me the above error.  I can download programs with no problem.  It won't find my ipod now either.  I hope someone can give me some insight on these problems so I can get my programs back on.

Unfortunately, that first error covers a multitude of other possible problems, anything from insufficient permissions to corrupt files:

Can you list the other errors you are receiving? That might help narrow down the cause.
