I cannot install any new software (or sometimes cannot even delete) due to the error "another instll is already in progress. Complete that before proceeding with this install". I am frustrated and do not know where to look. Task manager does not show anything running. HELP, HELP
1. Try to restart your computer and if that does not resolve the conflict, go to step 2. 2. Open the Registry and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager 3. Locate and delete any "PendingFileRenameOperations" values in the key. 4. Click "Yes" when prompted to delete.
53 processes when you just started your computer? That's far to much. On average there are 28 to 32 and that's quite enough. I would suggest to download a little tool that allows you to stop the unnecessary processes without any trouble. This tool must not be installed. It's a ZIP-File, that has to be unzipped in a temporary folder. Then doubleclick on it and from the menu choose Profile and recommended. Then click the button at the buttom of the program to activate the changes. Restart computer and see what happens. http://www.xp-antispy.org/index.php...
