If you followed all the regular advice coming from the different forums, diet and you still have an issue, then my friend I think you may have a rootkit installed on your computer (virus).  Now a clue that you do have a rootkit on your computer is that a few security patches from Microsoft refuses to install.

Reboot your computer using the Windows XP cd and go into the Recovery Console.  Then type fixboot and acknowledge the change.  And also do a fixmbr.

You should be all set, I would run an antivirus software after just in case.  But you should be good.

If this fixed your issue…. Please say thank you in the comments.
