I spent all day yesterday reinstalling windows and reconfiguring my system.
I installed windows Home Premium 64-Bit
Nforce 15.53 WHQL, Nvidia 257.21 WHQL, Realtek 2.49 onboard HD, and Nhancer 2.59.
Next I installed the following:
VLC Media Player, Notepad++, Adobe Flash IE8, Firefox, Adobe Flash Mozilla, Adobe PDF Reader, Internet Download Manager, CC Cleaner, Adobe CS4, and Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD 10 Platnium.
The very last thing I did before my system started acting up was
copy all of my audio/video backups onto this drive.
Install Avira Anti-Vir Premium (update and do a full scan) *kaspersky engine
Install NOD32 Anti-Virus (update and do a full scan) * Nod32 zero day heuristics.
Run one final quick scan with Avira just to be sure... Uninstall Avira.
I did this because statistics of information state that while you are updating your system from a fresh install it is most vulnerable. Since it most likely has no av and no strong firewall. Thats 20 minutes of a system being vulnerable while it downloads and installs various updates.
Finally to my problem at hand...
I went to install windows updates yesterday and it got stuck on some .net 4 setup file so I rebooted. It shows nothing as being installed! Now I can't install nothing at all and after the reboot.
It came back saying the side by side configuration is not correct - The programs worked before it got stuck, but now I can't even open adobe cs4 or sony vegas...
Also when I look at my internet modem it has no activity lights eventhough the windows update page says that its downloading and installing. It also never goes above 0%. I have even walked away and let it sit for two hours. When I came back it was still at 0%
What is this side by side configuration error I have never seen this before...
It was working fine before that .net got stuck
