If wannabe1 wants you to reinstall or reformatt then there shouldnt be any harm tring to uninstall try it youll be alright

I haven't asked for a format and reinstall. :whistling:

Download the following and save them to your deslktop:Double click on the downloaded MSIFIX file and click "Run". A black window will appear briefly.

Double click on the downloaded SymNRT file and click "Run". Click "Next" and accept the agreement. Click "Next" and input the numbers in the box and click "Next". Click "Yes" or "Ok" at each prompt. (You may need to click more than once...Your computer may be restarted for you more than once...You may be asked to repeat some steps after the computer restarts).

Right click on the downloaded SYMMSICLEANUP file and choose "Merge". Accept the change and click "Ok".

Does the Installer window still come up?

Dang - still happening. It's not up all the time though, only when he tries to do a file search, so at least he can use his computer but it would be nice to make it work again if you have any other ideas.

You guys (as usual) have been a great help!

Now that it's running...

Click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r (note the space) and reboot when prompted (type Y and press Enter). This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.
