I was told to run eventvwr.msc and how what comes up under system applications
Well here's what came up:
Information - NProtectService
Event ID: 3
user: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
The description for Event ID ( 3 ) in Source ( NProtectService ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: The event log file is corrupt.
Information - MsiInstaller
Event ID: 11708
Product: Quake 4™ -- Installation operation failed.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft....link/events.asp.
Those are the only things that failed at around the same time as the installation crash. Hope you guys can get a fix from that somehow..
