My friend gets this error when trying to install Windows Live or Gears of War (same thing, installing Live)

This is the error file.

C:Windows/winsxs/manifests/x86_microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.762_x-ww_6b128700.cat

Any ideas, he said he has reinstalled even and the problem continues. He thinks it has something to do with permissions but he is on XP, i said it sounds like a Trojan, but how can that be if he reinstalled?

I am still waiting on his reply, but I am pretty sure he has tried installing that, and might have got the same error. If that is the case, any ideas?

tell him to clear out both temp folders and try re-installing, also get him to re-download the live installer

they are focusing on vista x64, so he might want to get that, that and the fact driver support is better on vista x64 then it is on xp x64

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
