I have administration rights, and this is a fresh install on a formatted partition of my harddrive. This is driving me insane. It was working prior but I had to reinstall to get the drivers for my network adapter to work.

Here's some examples:

Latest 8800 GTS drivers:

1) Publisher could not be verified... etc. etc: I click Run
2) UAC does its annoying stuff: I click Allow
3) NVIDIA Windows Vista x64 Display Drivers has stopped working.
4) Close the program
5) The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005) Click OK to terminate the application: Click OK
6) NVIDIA Windows Vista x64 Display Drivers has stopped working.
7) Close the program
8) Lower right corner states the program was closed. (No crap)

Firefox 2.0.0.7

1) Publisher could not be verified... etc. etc: I click Run
2) UAC does its annoying stuff: I click Allow
3) Firefox has stopped working.
4) The program might have not installed correctly

Sound Blaster X-Fi Drivers (Latest)

1) UAC does its annoying stuff: I click Allow
2) Self installation has stopped working

I also get a "80200053" error in Windows update... and I dont know what this means. I've never seen it and can't find much of anything on it.

Any help is appreciated! :)

sorry for the slow reply. It took me a while to research this.


On your windows update problem, try going to Windows > SoftwareDistribution > Download and remove or delete everything in the folder. That should let you download windows updates. Which in return should solve some other compatibility problems.

Also to turn off uac: go to the control panel, click on User Accounts, click on Turn User Account Control on or off, uncheck it and click on OK.
