Look in c:\windows, for svcpack.log, and attach it here please.....

Probably just a single registry key/file permission thats failing, and theres no need to to reset the entire registry.....

Or, just do a search in that log for "denied", once it is opened in Notepad, and then you should see the keys causing the problems.....

Since we had not heard anything for a couple of days, we have decided to format the HDD and run the recovery.  The time keeping is still an issue.

Still not keeping the right time AFTER a reinstall?

Using time servers? Bad battery on the Motherboard?
