Unable to install IE7 or WMP | BSOD

  1. After a virus Internet explorer failed to work anymore, not much trouble as i never used it, but recently a virus took Windows Media Player down now.

    I tried to install windows media player 11 again but cant.
    Every time it passed the creating system restore point a BSOD shows.
    I haven't got much evidence on what it says right now, but the main line shows System32:LZX32.sys.

    I recently removed a virus called lzx32 but the BSOD still shows the .sys message on IE or WMP install. I turned off zonealarm and AVG before install, but no luck.

    I looked through processes and got rid or any un-needed but still no luck.
    The exact same error shows for internet explorer 7, which i do now need working correctly for various updates. But also because some things only work in IE.

    I looked up this message on the internet but nothing relates to both IE7 and WMP.

    Windows Xp home SP2
    1024 ram
    DSL net

    i'm having problems installing ie 7 too.

    yes, it probably is total crap.

    but it's annoying that it can't be loaded.

    anyone have any ideas?

    are you still having this problem?
    I seem to have fixed the error i was getting
    I downloaded the following software....it's free.

    I installed that and it came up with a trojan on my computer that nothing else had found.

    the other thing i did was go to


    and use that. it also found 3 probs on my computer.
    Since i've used both of those I've not had freezes and i've installed ie7.

    hope this helps
