Cannot install any application on Vista

  1. Hi there,
    I have a Samsung laptop equipped with Vista Home Premium. Since few days, every single application I try to install, fails. It downloads correclty, but when it comes to install it, I got weird messages about corrupted files, invalid file names or directories, NSIS errors.

    I tried to install all the antispaware applications I got in mind, malwarebytes, superantispyware, prevx, hijackthis. Malwarebytes and superantispyware failed with one of the errors above; prevx was installed fine, after it ran, it said that there were a couple of files infected with a trojan called crypt.bno (I googled around, but could not find anything to remove it); hijackthis also installed fine, but when it runs, while collecting the info, it comes up with an error happening at the modmain_checkother4item() procedure.

    The same results if I start in safe mode.

    I don't know what else to try...

    Regards,
    D.

    Download and run free Avast antivirus. Remove, Quarantine, or Rename & Remove any malware Avast finds. In other words, take positive action
