    This is my first time posting on the forums. I am having this issue with my vista 32x acer desktop. I have run sfc /scannow and it could not repair all damaged files. I cannot read the cbs.log b/c I do not know what I am looking at. everytime I try and run a application, i get this error, "The system could not find the environment option that was entered". I have backed up all my pictures and videos on dvd's and am now contiplating re-installing windows. I have gotten a copy of windows vista and my oem windows key. My desktop came with windows pre-installed but with no disks.

    Can someone please provide me with some aid!! I need either a fix for this problem or a step by step tutorial on how to re-install vista on a machine that currently has a pre-installed version on it.

    PLEASE HELP!!! I HAVE A SLOW AND LAGGY PC!!!!

    I have a suspicion this is related to a bustted Java application.
    Try opening add/remove programs and uninstalling Java.
    Whether or not it is sucessful install this http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp

    tried the install new java, computer wont let me run any applications at all, even installation .exe It give me all the same error with the environment thing. I can't even run a file from a disk without it givin me that error. I wanted to use the upgrade option on the vista disk but i can't run it, i can only open it. I can run the disk in safe mode and from booting straight from drive.

    does it look like my only option is to reinstall

    PLEASE HELP!!!!
