Currently each freeze. Office freezes as soon as I hit install, Quicktime and Itunes pretty much the same. OpenOffice unpacks and then freezes with a nice window telling me that it's preparing to install. I've tried re-installing Windows Installer, fixing up the registry paths, basically all of the steps I have found any possible solution for. Also, when I'm installing each there are 3 instances of msiexec running (OpenOffice shows 4...I'm tossing that up to the extra preparing window). Figured I'd toss that in since I've never had any issue before and never looked into how many instances are running.
When I go to cancel them they just stay open, no idea why. It goes through the motions of telling me they aren't done and am I sure I want to do this. I click "Go ahead and stop the install now because you aren't doing it anyways," but the install screen stays open til I end the process.
On a quick side note, I tried burning a DVD using windows DVD maker, it froze at 78.6 percent, well it stopped going any farther then in any case. Just realized that DVDMaker.exe is still running and no matter how many times I click End Process, it just won't go away. I figured it would be easier to hit two birds with one stone instead of two threads.
The install is the major thing though.
Thanks in advance for any help tossed my way.
