    the windows installer could not be accessed. this camn occur if u are running windows in safe mode, or if the windows installer is not correctly installed... blahblahblah!!! WTH is that stuff lol.. safe mode .. not if i can help it lol .

    Have you disabled any services or such? or do you have any of your temp folders set to read-only?

    I must say i've been following alot of your problems through this forum cyanide and it seems to me you might seriously consider doing a complete clean format and re-install since alot of your problems seem to be major random errors being caused by XP and not your software

    just my own opinion :)

    I'm down for $5.00 that it hits before the SuperBowl, even if you don't really need it, lol.

    I think a lot of folks are having problems because they'll flash their bios. A clean installation 'may' be required to pick up on these new changes to the basic configuration of the machine.
