    Hi, I am the only user and this problem has been going on for a while, have rebooted many times and uninstalled many programs eg. Nero, Quicktime etc. that might be causing the problem. It seems that others are experiencing similar problems. I just tried to reinstall Java but couldn't. Uninstalling is no problem.

    i heard of it before, try this

    go to start
    control panel
    system and security
    admin tools
    computer management
    services

    go down to windows installer, change this to disabled
    reboot the pc,

    repeat the above steps but change this back from dsiabled to manaul

    reboot again

    let me no how it goes
