I have been in my RegistryEdit to delete some games that wheren't totally uninstalling for some reason, would this have anything to do with this error? I was reading something about the error is my video driver though so i don't know whats up. plz help thx

    Hi Boogieman,

    See if this helps.
    Start > Run > type (or copy and paste)
    sfc /scannow
    >enter.

    NOTE***
    For sfc /scannow with regular install cd after SP1 is installed. This is a quote from
    Kelly of Kelly's corner.

    Put the regular CD in the drive first, exit its Autorun, then run the
    SFC. It should then find the SP1 files in the Windows\ServicepackFiles
    folder, and go on from there to the versions on the regular CD.

    What operating system are you using? What video driver is installed?

    Also, I would suggest going back to the site where you read about the video driver being the problem; it's possible they may have a solution, or at least some links that lead to more information.

    It would also help if you posted the exact error message you're receiving. :)
