Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

Hello baertekxx12,

Peruse the link below to see if it provides any useful information.

Microsoft has no publicly available information for error code 800736B3.
Other threads in Answers forums very strongly suggest that error code 800736B3 is a symptom of system corruption/damage, most often caused by, e.g., one or more Norton realtime-protection processes, an infection, and/or injudicious use of "Registry cleaners" (e.g., Registry Mechanic; System Mechanic; RegCure; Advanced SystemCare; AVG PC TuneUp; PCTools Optimiser; CCleaner).

It installed after over an hour on a quad core @3.7GHz and three hard disks in RAID 0... restarted and tried again with the language pack, still same problem...
