There are several problems I seem to be having with my PC. I had Mcafee (Security Center, Privacy, Firewall, and Scanning) installed and I decided to uninstall all of this since I noticed some problems and was told that Mcafee tends to do this as does Norton. I was able to uninstall it okay. But due to some strange glicthes and error messages reinstalled it. I then tried to uninstall Microsoft Antispyware and got the following message:
The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.
When I uninstalled all of this I then got the message on the bottom saying: "your computer might be at risk". I tried enabling the Windows Firewall and got this message:
Due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings.
I also noticed a message saying that there might be a problem with my Windows Installer.
I've always had SpywareBlaster, Spybot, and Lavasoft Ad-aware and update them often as well as scan of course. I keep up with all of this. What I wanted to install was AVG since I had it before.
What could be the problem? I appreciate it. Thank you.
Onel last thing I forgot to mention is that Windows Automatic Update, won't update (automatically) anymore. When I try to do so manually, it will start but will let me know it was unable to update.
