    I HATE COMPUTERS!!!

    What does this attached picture mean? I get it EVERY time I try to install Mozilla on my computer in an attempt to get away from IE.

    Is your house built on an old Indian burial mound? (just kidding)

    That’s one of about 11 quadrillion indecipherable Microsloth error messages designed to get you to pay their tech support $249.95 to tell you to press the reset button.

    According to Microsloth:
    Honestly, I haven’t a clue, but my first recommendation is to confirm you have the latest service pack installed (you didn’t mention the OS). Second, if you haven’t done so in the last week or so, run defrag and checkdisk (in conjunction with a reboot). Then download another copy of the Mozilla installation file (to rule a corrupt file).

    If that doesn’t work, try Leenuks (just kidding).

    It gets better.

    I "upgraded" to IE7 and now none of the drop downs show anything. Makes selections pretty hard. See attachment.

    1. Go to the Control Panel
    2. Click on Add/Remove Programs
    3. Click on Show Updates (Small Box in the upper Region)
    4. Scroll down and look for IE7
    5. Hit uninstall

    You can try to repair IE 6 and it may help.



    Method 1: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

    * From the Start menu, select Run.
    * In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
    * Select the OK button.
    * Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
    * Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.

    Method 2: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

    * From the Start menu, select Search, select All Files and Folders.
    * Select More Advanced Options and place a checkmark beside Search Hidden Files and Folders option.
    * Ensure that Search System Folders and Search Subfolders are also checked.
    * In the All or Part of the File Name box, type ie.inf
    * In the Look In drop-down menu, select C: or the letter of the hard drive that contains the Windows folder.
    * Click the Search button.
    * In the search results pane, find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder.
    * Right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu.
    * Reboot the computer when the file copy process is complete.


    Or maybe run the IE 6 installer

    disable all anti-virus when you run the mozilla installer, and all your other applications and crap in the system tray.

    sometimes this error can indicate RAM instability, so I'd look for BIOS update for your motherboard, just to be safe.

    the defrag idea is a good one too. i'd even try installing in safe mode.

    its doesn't look like an installshield error though.

    :upeyes:

    Step 1: Download the Mozolla or Firefox install file.

    Step 2: Reboot into Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly, then select Safe Mode from the list.) Reboot and try again if XP manages to boot.

    Step 3: Click on the mozilla .exe file and install it.

    I'll bet that works for you. :rollsmiley:
