Vista Installation Problem

My wife opened the fake UPS email attachment going around and messed up our PC.

I've been trying to re-install Vista Home Premium 32 bit from the OEM disk and I've been having all sorts of problems.

I've partitioned my HDD and set up the corresponding drives. Now when I try to install Windows, I get "Windows could not re-initialize the deployment engine." Then it tells me to re-install Windows.

My wife called (I left the install running when I came to work) and now we have a message saying that Windows cannot assign a drive letter to the selected partition. Error Code 0x80300002

Now what?

Run your virus program (MSE is the one I suggest) and run malwarebytes.

If that doesn't fix things, go back to a restore point before that mail was opened.
