Hi kja2 ,

2 anti-virus software can not co-exist on a computer system ; therefore you did the correct thing by uninstalling the old anti-virus first . However , there are lots of anti-viruses which do not get deleted (uninstalled) by going to Start > control panel > Add/Remove program. These anti-virus have to be removed by special "uninstallers" . I do not know which Anti-virus you have on your system , therefore I will provide you with the link of most common anti-virus uninstallers :

Symantec: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
McAfee: http://ts.mcafeehelp.com/displayDoc.asp?docID=408302&categoryId=246&lastCategoryLog=1&HotT
Trend Micro: http://esupport.trendmicro.com/support/viewxml.do?ContentID=EN-1033129


once the antivirus is removed through the uninstaller , then try installaing the new anti-virus which was giving you "files corrupt" message ... it will then work fine.
Also , . I would like to suggest you a very good anti-virus which you can download free of cost from internet :

Goodluck :-)

I cannot install any software. NSIS error!


Hi

1.Go to "Start," click on "Run," type "cmd" in the text box, and then click on "OK."
2.On to the black window that opens up, click and drag the software installation file icon that you wish to install. For example, suppose you want install Google Talk on your computer and the setup file (googletalk-setup.exe) is stored in the "C:\\Software" folder. Click and drag the "googletalk-setup.exe" icon from the Software folder, onto the black window. Once you have dragged it, the entire path (C:\\Software\\googletalk-setup.exe) shows up on the black screen.
3.Press the spacebar on your keyboard and type "/NCRC". In our example, "C:\\Software\\googletalk-setup.exe /NCRC".
4.Press "Enter." The setup program will start now.


Note:

Even after following the above procedure, if the installation still does not start, then the installation file is damaged. Download a fresh copy of the software and try again.

File\minit\system32\Kdcom.dll could not be loaded.The error code is 4. The above massage is showing when I try to restore my Acer Aspire One.I am not able to run my window XP. Please help me.


It sounds like this file is corrupt you need to download a fresh copy and install it.
I would suggest trying to open your laptop in safe mode. While you are booting continually tap F8 and you should get a different menu. You need to select start in safe mode with networking. Follow the instructions to open it as an administrator.
When you have the system open use the internet to download a fresh copy of Kdcom.dll from here
http://www.dll-files.com/kdcom.zip?0WMmXCVMeO
Unzip the file to the same path as you show in your error message and overwrite the old copy of Kdcom.dll
Now restart your machine and hopefully this will have solved your problem.

I think my computer has no virus protection and everytime I try and download some it says I need to download a newer version of windows but also I have to appearently download a newer version of microsoft...


Which version of Windows are you using:
* Windows 95
* Windows 98
* Windows NT
* Windows 2000

Note that as of 13-July-2010, *NONE* of the above Operating Systems are supported by Microsoft. So, some anti-virus programs will *NOT* run on those "retired" Operating Systems;
you need to install a newer version of Microsoft Windows.

From another computer with Internet access,
download the FREE anti-virus software:

http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials

and copy the downloaded file to a USB memory-stick.

Move the memory-stick to your computer, and connect it.
Run the downloaded program on that memory stick, to install the anti-virus software onto your computer.

Fixing a corrupted yahoo messenger.exe


·If you have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory.

To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. If you have a Flash drive copy it. If none, copy them like this:

CLOSE Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the a different folder on your computer and RENAME IT AND save..

Now you can DELETE the Yahoo Messenger by deleting the directory:

CLOSE the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are CLOSED.

Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Click the "C:" drive.

Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!

Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard.

DEFRAG your computer files to remove those empty spaces resulting from the deletion.

TO INSTALL:

CLOSE all running applications EXCEPT for your Internet browser.

DISABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S. Most times they interfere in the downloading/installation process.

http://messenger.yahoo.com/webmessengerp…
