every time i go to update windows i get a message "windwos update cannot currently check for updates,becuase the service is not running" i have tried restarting my computer a few times, thats not work, also i have tried it re install windows, then i just get the message "windows cannot recive data from this disc"
also my theme is stuck on classic.. if i go to chage there all the other one's are blacked out and cant be clicked, i have tried touble shoting and that says nothing is wrong? it wont even let me do a system restor (even though i dont think i have one set up) i get the message "a volume shadow copy serive component encountered an unexpected error. check the application event log for more information(0x80042302)
cant even boot from my cd drive with my windows disc, that just freezes on the instaling background, no text or anythin

basically my computer is pretty screwed, but after trying for 2 days it seems pretty un fixable too.. got any ideas what to do?

2. Make sure that the Volume Shadow Copy Service is Running and set on Automatic.
3. If the Status of System Restore Service is not Started, Start it. Also set it on Automatic if it is not.
4. restart your computer.
Now try to do a system restore

Also, run System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to make sure system files are intact and to replace the file. Follow these steps:

2. Right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue
