    Permanent Problems with Vista - can't reinstall

    I am VERY disappointed with VISTA

    I have had Windows Vista 64 for 2 Months now and of that period of time it worked soundly for about 2 Weeks.
    I am NOT an irresponsible User, I don't just delete Data, I know a little something about computing, I don't visit or download from dubious sites etc.

    Nevertheless, Vista has been causing problem after Problem since I have it


    1) Without any reason software suddently doesn't work.
    a) I installed a Antivirussoftware - after 3 Weeks it suddently didn't work any more (Kaspersky) I couldn't reinstall it.
    b) I installed a new Antivirussoftware - after 5 days it didn't work anymore.
    c) 4 days later I started to get errormessages "Windows Defender doesn't work any more" - "Windows Hostprocess doesn't work anymore"

    furthermore:
    The Internet Explorer doesn't work anymore, I have no idea why (I usually use Firefox)
    Windows Media player doesn't work anymore

    2) Everytime I check the C: drive for errors it tells me there are errors, same thing when I do the sfc_scannow test.

    3) I can't reinstall Vista, when I do it tells me there has been an Error 0x80070241

    I think I need to completely reboot and reinstall everything

    PLEASE HELP!

    Hi Atonius.

    If you got this error code while trying to install from the dvd :

    I can't reinstall Vista, when I do it tells me there has been an Error 0x80070241
    It may indicate a problem finding install.wim and copying the setup files.

    You may have better luck with a different (external) dvd player, or a borrowed x64 installation dvd - using your own product key, of course.

    Hope it helps

    Re: Permanent Problems with Vista - can't reinstall

    1) noone around me has vista 64 and they all laugh at me for buying it (XP wouldn't work because of the RAM) so where can I get a DVD?
    2) why is there suddently something wrong with the DVD? it worked the first time?

    3) can't I just delete the whole thing via bios? how would that work?

    4) what is wrong anyway? why is this happening with Vista? If I reinstall everything, will it do the same thing again?

    5) could it be hardware related?

    I'd suggest picking a specific problem and then providing additional detail around it. For example, the "host process" error (that may potentially be more serious than your other issues):

    - What is the exact error message, down to the numbers?
    - Can you reproduce it somehow or is it intermittent?
    - If you can repro, does it also happen when you test in safe mode?

    There's a natural human tendency to assume that all problems are interlinked, but that's not always the case. Try break things up into bite-sized chunks.

    thank you for your answer!

    Specific Problem Nr. 1
    Every time I start my computer (also in safe mode) I get an error message:
    (translated) Windows defender doesn't work any more. A solution is being searched for.

    I have been getting that for the last weeks, since both my antivirusprograms stopped working.

    I cannot download the software and reinstall it, every time I try it tells me "this update is not for your system"

    Specific Problem Nr. 2
    IE and WMPlayer don't work any more, without any reason why.
    they just don't start.

    I cannot download the software and reinstall it, every time I try it tells me "this update is not for your system"

    (translated)

    Specific Problem Nr. 3
    Windows does NOT let me repair itself.
    When I insert the disc to reinstall windows it tells me this errormessage:
    there has been an Error 0x80070241
    Specific Problem Nr. 4
    Every time I start my computer (also in safe mode), after I get the windows defender error message I get following Errormessage

    "Windows Host-Process doesn't work any more. A solution is being looked for"

    there is no additional info.



    Lets deal with that for starters.

    I am VERY grateful for any help
    thank you guys in advance
