Hi,

Recently some Indian guy fixed my Dads computer as the HP printer was not working.

He screwed around and now whenever he starts up the Dell, windows trys installing some software, then says that it could not find 'Unload.msi'.

Any help to get this from popping up in the future?

Thanks,
Alec

Try if you can see any traces in the eventviewer.

To start it follow the following steps:

  • Go to Start and hit Run.
  • In that box, type: "eventvwr"
  • Look up the date and time when the error occured.
  • If there's a red circle with an X in it copy the information into your next reply.

Regards,
Olrik

A few days ago my computers hard drive started running all the time. Further Windows XP installer started trying to install unload. It was looking for a file " unload.mdi ". It keeps comming back right after in click close.

I'm very new to the computer boards so I'm sorry if I don't know or step on anyone.

I'm running a: HP Intel 2.8 d-core computer with 3g. of ram. The system is XP Media Center with Exp 7.
I have been running Norton SystemWorks for the last 2 years and was on the system new.

I have checked the message board and could not get any results.

Any help would be a god send.

My wife used the computer for Family searchs and I don't know what to back up or not.

WOULD TRULY APPRECIATE SOMEONE'S HELP! (PLACED JANUARY 24TH, 2008)

I have a Toshiba Satellite A45-S150 Windows xp home and know next to nothing about computers, though I do keep up with the Windows Updates, the Nortin Internet Security 2008 updates and prior to the upgrade to Ad-aware Anniversary version I had Ad-aware 2008. I downloaded the free Ad-aware anniversary addition upgrade yesterday, ran a full scan then turned off the computer for the night. When I started my computer today I find myself in the Windows Installer/Unload.msi/WindowsFormsParking Window:hpqimzone.exe - This application failed to start because MFC71.DLL was not found. 3 window panes I've not seen before and that do not go away by simply restarting the computer. The 3 window panes will not close even with clicking the cancel button. They just begin their sequence again, as if a loop. I tried to do System Restore many times only for the computer to say it could not be restored to the various checkpoints. I read a post dated 11-5-2008 by rcoren22 that I believe is my problem too, but did not see a posting after his for an answer for this computer problem. I very much hope there is an easy solution to my computer problem.

Following is one of my Event Errors:

Event Type: Error
