Alright Guys... I read the previous forum about the intallation error that popped up, and how the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool tests the RAM for functionality, as well as the BIOS settings correct, etc. I followed that forum, and my RAM cards are fine. My computer has just recovered from a massive spyware/virus (Spyaxe/iworm_attck-v122.02a) that I fixed a few days ago. I am now thinking that this virus messed around with my world of warcraft game somehow. I noticed the graphics were garbled at first, and then I noticed the World of Warcraft Registry wasnt in the add or remove programs in the Control Panel anymore!!! I tried to uninstall it, and it was going fine after i clicked the uninstall icon, but a few seconds after I clicked the icon uninstall, a bunch of errors popped up, and the whole world of warcraft uninstalled from my computer in a matter of seconds! There was nothing in the Program Files anymore either! So I decided to reinstall it, which usually fixes things. My discs are basically brand new, mint condition, and have no scratches whatsoever. I bought this laptop less than a year ago, and the dvd-rw drive is basically brand new as well. I installed this game with the same discs before on the same computer, so theres nothing wrong in that area. So I went to reinstall the game, got to the 4th disc, and received this error:
The installer was unable to read the file "<unknown>". This error may be caused by problems with the media or drive at --for example, a scratched or dirty CD-ROM/DVD-ROM, hard drive corruption, or a networking problem while downloading the installer. (The data being read was "Repack-MPQ\Data#model.MPQ\Creature\HighElf\HighElfFemale_Hunter.m2", and the error code was 38.) If this problem persists, please contact Blizzard Technical Support.

And on top of that, I received this error following it:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Program Files:...mp\Blizzard Installer Bootstrap - 0001ac27\Installer.exe R6025 - pure virtual function call
I looked this second error up in Microsoft's Support Knowledge Base, and was overwhelmed at what the virtual function call was and how to fix it. Can anyone point their finger and lead me the right way? I feel like I'm playing darts in a dark room right about now.
