As told I run Win2k SP4, and I experience major problems during installation of new software. While some might install others won't (others like: Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Acrobat) Why? Well, here are my diagnostics: It seems that there is a program hanging beyond processes (aka. does not appear on the processes screen when pressed Ctrl-Shift-Esc) This program calls itself "Sample," which appears when I exit windows as "This program is not responding." And straight after that (0.5 seconds before windows shuts down) I see the "setup.exe"...
I tried searching the disc for anything called "sample," but nothing of importance came up. So would anyone please help me with this problem?!?
I've tried to reboot it, the problem appears once again... And it doesn't go away untill I acctually click the shut down button, and "End now"... But then it's too late and the computer shuts down... and I reboot and etc. etc.
Here's what shows in the Advanced StartUp Manager window:
Everything on this computer is up-to-date, I have Norton Antivirus and SpyBot, which both is run weekly (required by the place I go to school)...
(NO I wont fdisk, format and re-install, it would be the 5th time on this computer since august. Therefore I'm sick of re-installing all software)
