Usually the last thing you did (install) and you start having problem...
DUH - uninstall and see if the problem goes away.

It's an application, found through the link in the article I posted. However, it doesn't seem to be available at that link, but it is available here.

Here's the correct reg add code:

REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /D "Service" net start msiserver

I booted into safe mode, and before I tried using the application or the reg code, I tried uninstalling WinRAR (that was the least important thing on my computer). I didn't have any problems uninstalling in safe mode. Can you uninstall any applications in safe mode?

You fail to recognize that I had troubles uninstalling VMware. Kegobeer, I'm not at home right now but will be in a few hours and try then. If I can uninstall other apps, what would you recommend doing? If I can't, what would you recommend doing?

If you have problems uninstalling a program download Download CCleaner 2.25.1025 - Crap Cleaner is a system optimization tool used by millions across the globe - Softpedia

Thats should allow you to uninstall it.

If you installed VMware with only 1gb of ram, thats where I would begin.. if you can boot into safe mode, try a system restore to a point before you installed VMware... also, did you check your specs to make sure that you could successfully run windows7??

How can I download that in Safe Mode? My computer is having troubles connecting to the internet and I was *hoping* to fix that after I got it working regularly again. Should I just download it on another comp and put it on a stick like someone else here (sorry, I can't remember who right now) suggested?

I've been running Windows 7 for a couple months at least now.

First of all, sorry for the late post. Have been busy lately. Second of all, I hadn't set up an image (or whatever you call it, lol) to restore to other than four days ago. Ouch. I tried THAT one anyway and it didn't work.

Also tried reinstalling Windows, and the installer doesn't recognize any of my partitions. At this point, I just want my computer running Windows 7 again, and if that isn't possible I'll probably have to deal with it.

So yeah, thanks for all the help and additional assistance would be appreciated.
