    I was attmepting to download iPod's iTunes and I had a system lock-up during the install. I've tried to reinstall/de-install and I keep receiving an error message.

    ERROR 1316: A Network Error Occured While Attempting To Read From the File C:\WINDOWS\Installer\iPod for Windows 2006-03-23.msi

    How can I get a "clean" de-install? I think it may have screwed up my registry because now my computers CPU is running at 100% and I can't figure out why. I've ran registry cleaners and nothing seems to fix it. On another Techguy forum we eliminated the possibility of a Trojan.

    Thanks in advance

    Do a backup of your registry 1st; use export and choose 'all files', then if an error is made just doubleclick and registry will be reverted. Navigate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software, and look for the folder by name and delete, then retry.

    Try CCleaner. It can remove programs and/or clean up registry. When you use it to clean the registry, it will ask you if you want to create a back-up, click yes.
