This week I did an XP Pro "Repair Install" on my pc.  However several problems have arisen pertaining to software downloading, intallations and use.

 

1. I tried to do a speed test as per http://www.speedtest.net which I received from www.geekstogo and I received a message that program encountered a problem and needs to close.

 

2.  This afternoon I tried to install HP software from installation disc and received this message.  "hpqsenvw.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.  It gives opton of clicking on debugging or exit.  Trying to debugg does nothing at all.  Details on this file are as follows:

 

      File.  hpqsenvw.exe

      Modname: urlmon.dll

 

3.  I have been also without luck trying to re-install Nero 7 Ultra using software disc.  Version is 7.9.6.0 but the installation still gets interrupted with message that it cannot continue.

 

I have been trying to evaluate if the problem lies with my pc or with the software discs, or even my CD/DVD drive.

 

This morning I did a file checker on pc, utilising Run>CMD Enter>SFC /scannow, but that revealed nothing either

 

Please adivise.

 

Regards and thanks for the good job being done on this site over the years.

Hi,

 

After the XP Pro "Repair Install" did you update Internet Explorer? and also installed all the Windows Updates?

 

How about your Antivirus program did you remove it before the repair and reinstall after?

After the Repair Install, you definitely need to install Service Pack 3 and 130 to 160 updates. It's a long, boring process but necessary.

What version of IE is currently active? If it's IE6, download and install IE8 then try SP3 again.

Cannot download and install IE8 successfully.  Could this be a problem within the registry with Windows Installer?

As to my experience, when the Windows degrades to the point, when we get annoyed with its glitching so much, that we decide to DO something, best thing is not "Repair Install", but formatting disk C and clean new install. If previous Windows was in someway "misbehaving", just try different one with good reputation.

When I tried to download IE6 or better I am taken to Microsoft site, but then I get message that "website is not currently available" and that's as far as I get, unless I could try and download it from www.filehippo.com, which I havent tried yet.

Download IE8 from here: http://www.microsoft...-8-details.aspx

 

You can do this on another computer, place on a flash drive and install it that way.
