Everything working ok, windows updates automatically. Suddenly I cannot remove any programs - I get the message 'cyclic redundancy check.

Also, when I open internet explorer windows installer tries to install microsoft money. This also happens if I try to open a second internet explorer window.

Any ideas anyone? Please explain in simple terms!
Thanks.

Try this:

start

run

sfc /scannow

Click Run.

Yes one of the updates more than likely as done it

Tried your suggestion and nothing happened, after I ran sfc /scannow it just disappeared. I presume that means everything is ok.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Would it be safe to delete all the updates. I almost did this, but it told me that numerous programs would not work correctly if I did.

Also, my norton virus checker now gets stuck on the logitech/mouseware file. I've tried to get rid of the infra-red keyboard and mouse (it interferes with the baby monitor) but a couple of the files refuse to be deleted due to cyclic redundancy check.

Nope just means SFC has finished, look in event viewer for a report on SFC.

Start/Run

eventvwr.msc

[Enter]

System, look for "Windows File Protection" if there are two entries, SFC, started and finshed. If there are any more it did something...

System Restore?

You should have the updates in Add Remove. it should be OK to remove from there. But have you tried a restore point assuming you are on XP
