Yes, go ahead and let the updates install....
I'm working on the paging file issue and will get back with you shortly.

Ok...the Page File Issue...
Go to the Page File settings just as if you were going to change the size of the Page File (Virtual Memory). Put a tick in the button next to "no paging file"...click "Ok". "Apply" the changes. If there is more than one Page File (multiple hard drives), do this for each instance of the Page File. Reboot your machine.
Go back to the Page File settings and put a tick in the button next to "System managed size", click the "Set" button, and click "Ok". Apply the changes and restart your computer.
Go to the Page File settings (again) and look to see that the Page File has set up. Let me know what you find.

As I'm on here, a warning bubble just appeared in my tray:
oh drat...went to type it out and it disappeared! Here's the gist...
Windows warned that my virtual memory was too low and that it was going to increase the size.
So I just went back into system settings, and nothing changed. Grrrrr! Meanwhile, my drive is chugging away....no idea what it is working on, but it is busy as ever!

Also...if you will PM me with your e-mail addy, I will send you a couple of files I'd like you to install to the System32 Folder.

Well, we now the files are all there and they are known good files...that points to a reistry problem of some sort.
How about the errors involving the other two files I sent? Any problems there?
Do you have your CD handy? I'd like to run a System File Check on that machine of yours.
To do the SFC, Click Start then Run...type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (this might take up to an hour). When it's finished, click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r /x (Again...note the spaces) and reboot when prompted (type Y and press Enter). This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.
Edit: added (type Y and press Enter)

I'm eyeballing the Page File and OE problems with this one...something in the machine just isn't matching up! The machine is looking for a blonde and finding a redhead...we need to find out why... We may end up running the Repair again, too, if this doesn't sort things out.

Let's try running a couple different online virus scans. I know ist sounds redundant, but they use different engines and tend to pick up on different things.
Panda Active Scan
Let me know if either of these scans find anything...if they do find something, I'd loke to know what it is.
