Hey, quick question:

So when Windows restarts (before trying the Install), should my Firewall and Anti-Virus startup? Or, should those things NOT have started up? My peer blocker and other things didn't startup, but those did, and i just want to be sure that's OK.

If it IS OK, I tried the install again and I got the same error message:
"Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070241"

I think you are suppose to disable those so the installation will run.

Hey, Rshaff!

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you (I was on deadline).

Well, I tried it again, and the installation didn't work. On the other hand, I've not had a BSOD crash in quite sometime, so maybe something DID get repaired amidst my efforts.

I'm going to leave it at this point. In part b/c I'm exhausted by all this.

So feel free to close this thread out. Should Windows start crashing again, I'll post it in a new thread and also alert you in case something we went through here can inform that issue.

Thanks for all of your patience and help.

We don't close topics in the tech part of the forum so if something goes wrong or you wish to update us just post back here. I'm sorry I couldn't get you a definite answer but I am happy the issue seems at the moment to be resolved.
