Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet
My E3240 started doing strange things so I immediately ran a virus scan. Machine crashed and rebooted with errors found when chkdisk ran. Tried to re-run virus scan (Norton IS 2008) but error message came up requesting a reinstall. Tried this but evry time I tried to reinstall got a "corrupt" installation message. Eventually gave up and decided to use e-machines recovery disk - first to repair and then when that failed for a complete re-format and reinstall. After numerous attempts still unable to get re-install to work (freezes on welcome screen). Hard disk runs and sounds OK, but is this the problem? What sort of HDD is it if I need to replace? Thanks, Bob
Download a Linux distro to a flash drive or DVD and see how well it runs off that. There's HDD utilities like SuperGrubDisk that can diagnose things.

there is no need to format all the drives ... wat you have to do ... is ... update your avg with latest updates ... and have a full system scan ... and delete all the virus ... then have your .. c: formated ..

I've tried all of the above (uninstall tool, manually uninstalling files), I even edited the registry per Norton's support. I still get the same message, "A setup error has occured that requires a reboot .Would you like to reboot now ?"
I am close to requesting a refund and purchase Antivirus Xp 2008.

During startup, just before the Windows splash screen appears, you should be able to hit the F8 key for a list of startup options. It looks from your post as if you know how to do this.
One of those choices should be to disable automatic restart on system failure. (or words very similar to that.) Use this choice to get into safe mode if you can, or into regualar windows.
Once there, go to the system restore feature and restore to a date when everything worked.
This error message is a message pointing to a piece of software (as opposed to hardware, as so many of these messages are).
The next best fix is to reinstall the OS from the ground up. this may be a major hassle, depending on the data you have on that hard drive.

boot system into safe mode. locate the icon for my computer. right click and go to properties. locate the computer name tab and select it. find the radio button for "change" and click it. rename the computer to something considerably shorter then what you have. the system cannot boot and complete the logon process if the computer name is longer than 200 "bytes"
