When going into safemode try selecting safemode with networking. If possible go to and download their free software.

If more assistance is needed don't hesitate to ask.

It sounds like you have an infection or a program causing instability in your operating system. Try running a disk check to make sure it is not the hard drive causing fault to sectors and if that comes up clean I would recommend to be safe just reinstalling windows. When you do reinstall keep your startup with as few items as possible (eg; any programs that can be opened yourself leave them off the startup and run just windows and drivers services). Get an antivirus such as AVG and keep your firewall enabled.

Get Rid of Webroot. Scan computer for Viruses.

Virus normally corrupts your computer.

Go to, and do the free scan Trend Micro's House Call virus, spyware and malware scanner and cleaner.

If you have anything, remove them. Helpful Free Software below Read On.

Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

You have a Rouge Anti-Virus malware, this is a virus do not download it will make it worse, the idea is to take over your computer and force you to buy the antivirus program which is actually just a list of places to download free virus removal software, All is not lost, if you have Virus software do a scan now and try to find it, if not download AVG Free Anti-Virus and that will take care of it.These people are from Russia and once they get your credit card number they will try to empty your bank. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

Installing windows live messenger

It could be that either your virus protection, or a virus itself is inhibiting the installation from finishing. Try getting a Virus protection program like mcafee, and installing that and see if it works.
