When I do that the box pops up with please wait... after that the please wait vanishes and the box is blank. I then recieve an error box "OptionalFeatures.exe - Bad Image" And the description "C:\Windows\system32\WindowsCodecs.dll is eaither not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support" *side note* I get these messages starting from after the windows loads as soon as the logon starts up ( there is one for WindowsLogon as having a bad image ) and continuously while I open or do various task. Occasionally the features will load and the .NET Framework 3.5.1 box has a check in it but it is Grey whereas alot of the others is a black checkmark, after expanding the folder there are 2 "Windows Communication Foundation" HTTP and non-HTTP activation, both are not checked.
** I have thought about copying files to a disc or external and just try reinstalling windows but the optical drive has a flag in device manager and wont show up in computer under the HDD like usual, Also tried plugging in my WD external HDD, it did its usual driver install but the driver for the part that acts like a disc to unlock the HDD failed, everything else went through just fine, the description in the device manager is "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged (code 19)" **
