    0x80004005.Any advice or referal would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank Kane yep typed it incorrectly did it right this time but help and support wont start it must be a registry hangover from all the scans and stuff I did getting rid of malware.

    I just found another of your postws at a different forum. Atribune.org

    http://www.atribune.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=2845


    You were being helped there but never answered the last response.

    You can onloy work at one forum. That's the rule. Otherwise we don't know what is what, and two poeple doing the same job is a waste.

    Please go over there and let them know you are working here and ask them to close your thread there. Or close this one.

    If you are working on this same problem elsewhere, it's the same. One forum per problem per person. Please choose at which forum you would like to contine.
    Hmm, funny rule, but I kind of agree with the guy, doing things that many people suggest can lead to mass confusion.

    Anyhoo...do an XP repair job and get on with life

    Oh and use ERUNT and keep your registry backed up in case you have problems like this in the future.
