Hello, recently my Windows XP SP2 crashed and had to repair it using my OEM disk. Well I got it up and running but now I am having a problem updating. Every time I check for updates it tells me I need Windows installer 3.1. So I tell it to install, but it then tells me it failed to install and that I need to restart my computer. I do so, and it repeats the whole process over again telling me I need to restart my computer. I have done this 4 times now with no end. I checked my add/remove programs list and I know for a fact I had it before my Windows XP crashed, and it's not there anymore after the repair. Have tried system restores, but they don't help. And I can't seem to get around this. As always help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
