So my current situation that a few installers (MS Visual C++ 2008 Redist and 4.5.1 .NET framework and some intel drivers) throw me a "Error 997. Overlapped I/O in progress". Apparently, this was because of a security update, or malware, but in my case, since I had just recently cleanly installed windows 7 (recently means 3~ days ago), malware is not likely to be the problem. http://support.micro....com/kb/2918614 (KB2918614) Was this culprit apparently, and I proceeded to uninstall it, yet it still happens with these few installers.

 

Trying to fix this, additional to uninstalling the "faulty" update, I installed update KB3000988, and Hotfix (KB947821). This didn't help.

 

I'd appreciate any help, since I'm all out of options.

Hasn't been installed already, according to Windows Update/checking Installed Updates. Any other suggestions?

Well, I "fixed" my issue by removing a bunch of my most recent updates and the service pack, since I didn't have a far back enough system restore point, and then I was able to install the mentioned programs. Haven't ran into the problem yet, after reupdating. So some other "faulty" update messing me up.
