I've been having problems with installing applications ever since I re-formatted my hard drive. Every time I try installing certain applications (Adobe AIR, Quicktime, Windows Updates, etc.), it says "Unable to install because another application is already being installed. Please finish first installation before continuing" or something similar. I tried searching various forums, and one lead me to just terminate the process of "msiexec.exe", which I do, but it keeps coming back. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!

if you don't have a xp cd you will have to borrow one from a friend or coworker...
it has to be the same flavor of xp you have installed...IE: if you have xp pro...the one you borrow has to be xp pro
