If I am not here, we truly have a great staff and we will get you working again. Happy New Year, enjoy your break.

Oh, one more question! I had it as an edit on an earlier post, but you might've missed it.

I should mention that my Windows directory and everything in is is still set to the Administrator group as owner at the moment from when I changed it to access explorer.exe.....a friend told me that the entire C:\Windows is set with "TrustedInstaller" as it's owner by default...should I change it back?

I have Office 2007 installed on my machine. Here is a ZIP file with the GUID folders in the C:\Windows\Installer folder. Maybe that will get you by. In that folder are a lot of MSI files that maybe part of Office 2007 because they have the same date as the folders, but they are huge so it would be best not to send them.

Thanks man, I added those folders to my Installer directory, they should certainly help.....I think it's the MSI files I need most though, without them it seems I cannot uninstall, update, or reinstall a lot of my programs for some reason. But no worries...I'll try to sort this out somehow.

Do you have an FTP site? or access to one? say at school? I would be happy to upload them. About 200meg or so. Worse case you could setup a temp FTP server on your machine and I could direct upload them. Let me know.

Hey WindowStar, I would very much appreciate that!!! I have a decent connection, so it shouldn't take too long, details are in a PM I've sent you.

Thanks again!

@DarkStrike - I did not get the PM because I have pop-up blocking on. Sorry about that. I added this site so you can resend the PM. Thanks.
