  • I can't install or uninstall anything on Windows 7

    I'm having a really frustrating problem where I can't install or uninstall almost anything and also more updates of windows are defective.  First of all, I thought it was a problem with my hard drive, but I tried, ' chkdsk/f', "chkdsk/r", error reporting, etc.  My hard drive has 58 GB free.

    My suspicion is that this has to do with .net 4.0.  I can't uninstall it, because it just hangs.  If I try to uninstall the updates various (e.g. KB2478663), it also blocks.  If I try to install Windows Live Essentials, it fails. If I try to update iTunes, it fails.  If I try to install the drivers for my new HP printers, it fails.
    This is an error message that I get when I try to uninstall .net 4.0.
    Returned IDOK. INSTALLMESSAGE_ERROR [an error occurred when writing to the installation on the drive information. [Check to make sure space is available and click Retry, or Cancel to end the installation.]
    I tried "sfc/scannow".
    Any ideas would be very useful.  In addition, any ideas on how to rule out the possibility that this is a hard drive failure would be useful.

  • Can't install or uninstall non-Windows and related Windows-related programs on the desktop of Windows 7 64 bit

    Hi all, on Windows 7 64-bit PC brother Dell, tried to install programs such as AVG Anti Virus, Remote desktop connection update.

    Every time we try what is installation hangs and nothing happens, to use the Task Manager to complete not only the program, if it is not there at all, but the actual process.

    Same thing happens if we try to uninstall a program.

    Can uninstall in safe mode,

    Have tried restore system to a time of ealrier, but the system does not want to do same.

    At work after a few weeks, but since then without success.

    I ran SFC/scanow.

    No Anti Virus is installed at present. that, like the program, I was able to uninstall in safe mode and using the Norton Uninstall tool.

    Tried Mr FixIt, but nothing helped.

    What else can I try before I go to the extreme of a new facility? Looks like a problem with the Windows Me installation program.

    Thanks in advance

  • My OS windows 7 does not work very well, can not install or uninstall programs

    My OS windows 7 does not work very well. Cannot install or uninstall programs. A week back ilivid software got installed, guess this particular software has caused the problem. Cannot run the task with the option in the control panel. I don't want to format my system since there are a lot of personal data. Instead of looking for any option of repair for BONE. Would appreciate if you can let me know the best way for recovery.

  • Can not install or uninstall anything, including the update for weaks now! Help, please?

    When I try to uninstall or install whatever it is even updated, I get a message saying another program is installed and to complete this process before you can start a new one. on my windows update window it starts to be updated and then fails with error 2 code: 652 and 80070652... runnin Vista Home Basic

    Once installed the clean, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" in order to take care of everything on the next page before connecting the machine to the internet or a network and before using a USB key/flash disk or SD card that is not brand new, or has not been freshly formattedotherwise:

  • I can't install or uninstall Adobe program because I get a message error Adobe Bridge is open. As far as I can see that it is not.

    I'm trying to install Adobe photoshop CS5 trial. I already have a version less on my computer.

    I can't uninstall the program from Adobe for the same reason, because the bridge is opened.
    Can someone help me to close the bridge please?

    User account control permission
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click on continue.
    2. in the general tab, click Selective startup.

  • Can't install or uninstall the installer download D110a all-in-one printer

    I had my D110 printer works correctly under vista on my previous computer.  Without the original installation disc I tried to install installation software downloaded on my new computer laptop windows 7, with several problems.

    Uninstaller fails to halfway, so I have to manually delete the files.  Two of the DLLs in the bin of imaging folder will not delete.  They are listed in the active processes Task Manager, but the Task Manager is unable to stop the process if the files cannot be deleted.

    When you run the installation program PS_AIO_07_D110_USW_Full_Win_enu_140_126, little time in installation, a window pop up says that something is to be the original installation disc.   Ignore this message, the installation takes place until the other window says that I need the installation for network64.msi disk.  Ignore this message, the installation seems to proceed until it stalls in the final configuration step.  After this process, I can print wireless in a program such as Word, but there is no icon for the center of HP, so I can't scan a multi-page document.

    I repeated several times, always with the same result.  HP troubleshooting is not deal with the problems arising from the installation of the software and I have not spotted a discussion of these issues on the forum.

    Who did.  Uninstall and reinstalled worked without a hitch.  Thank you.  But I'm left with the feeling that if HP cannot provide setup and uninstall the software that does not require a such work extended around, they should include with the printer and the manual user instructions step by step you gave me bove.

  • I can't install or uninstall Adobe Photoshop or hearing

    I've had photoshop for a while, before I have to reset my computer. I wanted to get hearing too, but I quit the implementation force. Now when I try to install or to uninstall Adobe Audition and Photoshop it says that I need the Application Manager. Why? I don't want that, I can do it myself. When I walked into photoshop it says something about the Visual drivers or somethings, but I ignored and deleted. The programs appear in my list of programs, but when I click on uninstall it said to get the App Manager.

    You seem to have yourself stuck between the hammer and the anvil...  You insist you can do yourself, but complain of is do not as well.  You should try to get and use the Application Manager.
