OK, hope this is the right place to post this!

At the current time, I am totally unable to install or uninstall ANY programs. I either get the above message or an error message that says another installation is in progress.

A friend recently put RegSeeker, RegistryMechanic, and Regcure on my computer because it was slowint down so much. I run Spybot S&D, AdAware, McAfee Virus Scan, and Spyware Balster regularly.

I went back and restored what Registry Mechanic and RegCure cleaned up. I can't figure out how to do the same with RegSeeker.

I have done a "go back" to before my friend installed these and even done a "safe" system restore.

I was not able to install the cleaner program recommended by the InstallShield Website.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

well, it sounds like we need to run a system repair. Do you have an xp cd?

If so then follow the instructions listed here: http://www.geekstogo...ws_XP-t138.html

I don't have an XP CD per se. I have a series of 7 recovery discs that apparently include XP.

Can I use those, or will I have to start from scratch if I do?

Thanks!

One more question:

Can I use ANY XP CD to do this if I have my own registration code?

TIA again!

It needs to be the same version as was originally installed, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an XP SP1 CD

Thanks Keith and Starjax. Looks like I will be calling friends to see if they have an SP1 Home Edition CD. If not, I guess it is a destructive system recovery.
