I am not entirely sure what happened afterwords. As I was installing, most of my programs began freezing, and once I restarted I got a blank screen with no icons/taskbar. After restarting in safe mode and performing a system restore to the previous update everything seemed fine.
However, I started getting all sorts of notices about programs not functioning:
1) AVG told me I needed to renew my license (can't really be possible since I use the free version)
2) Skype tells me my "parameter is incorrect"
3), Windows live messenger opens up, but the login screen is completely blank and I can't click anything
4) When I tried to install Malwarebytes, I get "error code 80040154" and something about "cocreateinstance class not registered"
I have no idea what could be wrong, since the computer doesn't seem to recognize itself or the programs and I can't perform a system restore to a previous date. I've spent a while trying to fix it, but I can't really seem to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated .
When i tried to run Chkdsk /f I got this error message
"The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the net time the system restarts y/n"
also, whenever I try to install Malwarebytes, I get
"Failed to load control 'vbalGrid' from vbalsgrid6.ocx"
I've even tried to rename it as something else other than Mwb.
