exact error i am getting---windows cannot access specified device, path, or file. you may not have appropriate permissions to access the item
See if you can create a new user account with administrator privileges. If you can, then you can run a repair install by using that. If not, follow my last post.

i think ill do a clean install...only thing is...i went on the forums on how to do a clean install and i got lost on how to go to #1 and #2---

1. Boot the computer from your Windows 7 installation DVD.
NOTE: Make sure that the CD/DVD drive is selected first in the boot order in your BIOS settings. Usually it is by default.

2. When prompted, press any key to boot from the installation DVD. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: You will only have about 8 seconds to press this key. If you miss it, you will have to restart the computer.

Did you insert the DVD and then restart your system? Do you get a message similar to Press any key to boot from CD...? When you see that message, press a key on the keyboard. Follow the rest of the instructions in this Tutorial Clean Install Windows 7

The only other option I can think of is trying to take ownership of the entire C drive ... This will take some time, but at this point I dont have any other ideas...See Brinks tutorial on how to do this -=> Here
