Weird.

The only time I could not install anything FB/PF was last year when I got the PF and I found I had Deleted some Windows installer stuff back during the summer when I cleaned out all the adware stuff I had collected using Internet Explorer. I started using FireFox after that. I had to re~install Windows to install the PF.

Mavr6,
You can try and install the OS right over the current one... it might help .... but then again, it might not!

But, before starting this re-install / upgrade / repair procedure, please do backup important and relevant data and settings!
(That's allways a good thing to do ... ya never know when the sh*.t is really gonna hit the Fanboy ;-)
