why will nothing install...

Vista home
re logged in as admin
UAC turned off
Registry permissions set to allow

then whatever you try to install gets to about 95% then can't access registry file etc and uninstalls its self

spyware or corrupt registry.

try system restore or safe mode.

  Seth Haniel 14:56 19 May 2009

no spyware
tried safe mode to no avail
been happening longer than the last system restore

reinstall vista then

as Bob The Blob says reformat all drives and have a clean install.

Or run the installer as Administrator. I wouldn't recommend running with UAC off by default, it provides more protection than just popping up annoying dialogue boxes - Protected Mode in IE is disabled for a start. click here

'run the installer as Administrator' Been down that path -
Only ran with UAC off to rule out that possibility

if you are having these problems
net localgroup Administrators Local Service /ADD
net localgroup Administrators Network Service /ADD

Restart your computer and bam! everything should work normally ^^
