I use Microsoft XP Pro.
I try to install MSE, but I keep getting an error message 0x80070643. Sometimes when I try to access the MSE website it comes up with a page stating, "We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found." I'm not sure if this is caused by a virus?

I also have only one screen resolution on my computer, so I can't see some of the buttons to install MSE , so I have to use the Tab key. Therefore, I seem to skip the software agreement and go straight to the part where it offers a firewall. It then tries to install and comes up with the error.

I also remember I had uninstalled MSE before only to get the error message when I tried to reinstall it and I think there are some MSE related files still on my computer that didn't uninstall and I can't delete them.

I also had this strange toolbar removed by combofix on another post on geekstogo that might have created the problem?
