  1. Hi I had this exact problem a few weeks ago, it turned out to be a corrupt file i had downloaded from te net, the way i solved it was to browse to the folder from a different user profile, this allowed me to look at the files with out crashing so much, then it is a matter of trying to find out what file it is and then deleteing it, it will probably be one of the last files you have downloaded before all this started to happen. Good luck Tony
  2. Well thanks for all the advice, but welldone that Scarecrow Man, Dial-a-fix did the trick, also MSN installed correctly, so now the webcam is also set up. Cheers Tony PS, Scarecrow Man i tried to send you a PM saying thanks, but you seen to have PM's switched off.

  5. Hi Irine, thanks for the link, but it does not seem to help with the problem i am having :( Andsome, yer it has been a while, i started up my own forum for English speakers living in Germany, and what with a new job that seees me working away form home Monday to Friday, my time is very limited. Good to see that most of you are all still around. Regards Tony
  6. Hi All, long time no see. This is a newly installed win XP Sp3 system with just Office XP and a couple of email programs installed, and all updates installed apart from the 11 i keep getting a fail on. When i go to win update site or the auto updates it says that there are 11 updates for me, so i click the link to install them, the files do seem to down load, but then a box pops up telling me that none of them were installed, so i click the next button and it goes to a page telling me the same info but with a couple of links to follow KB etc.. I have done what the links have told me to do, renaming the C:windows/softwareDistribution folder to old and then letting win update rebuild it, also have cleared out the IE cache but still they will not install. Second problem is i have just been back to England for a holiday and brought 3 web cams (Microsoft Life Cam), one for my laptop, one for my mothers laptop and one for this PC at home, and i need to install Windows Live Call for the video calls, now on the two laptops this was no problem (both Vista), but on this PC XP it downloads the files but fails on the install (the webcam software is working correctly and the cam is working as it should), now i think these two problems are linked, as in they both come from MS and i guess install in very similar ways. Can anybody help with this. Regards Tony
  7. I guessed the way :)
  8. Hi all Ok i just went out and bought the Tom Tom One V2 Europe, the main reason i bought that one, is a friend of mine has one and is very pleased with it, i had a bit of a play with his one the other night (no rude comments please) and liked it. The one i bought got me home from the shop with no problems :) Again thanks for all the advice and info given to me. Kind regards Tony

  11. Hi all I am interested in buying a Sat Nav system for the car (just one of the ones that sit on the dash or stick to the windscreen) but there are so many to chose from, and me not having a clue about any of them, i have no idea what to go for. So if any of you have a sat nav, can you tell me what you think of the model you have. I am interested in the, Tom Tom One Europe or the Garmin 300 Deluxe, i am willing to spend upto £220.00 €350.00 on it. I also want the maps to cover the whole of western Europe. Thanks for any advice you can give on this. Tony
