I can download documents but nothing executable, like anti-virus software from MicroSoft or anything executable. ("mseinstall.exe couldn't be downloaded.")


I have a Trojan infection that has damaged registry files(it seems). I got no system disc with this HP laptop. Downloads (of course) cannot help me. This conundrum has me by the short hairs.
