Can't install or uninstall games

May 28, 2015 at 05:17:04
Specs: Windows xp service pack 3, amd athlon 2x 255
I noticed this a couple weeks ago when I tried to install "Juiced 2", installation said "not responding", I said ohh well no time for that. I bought wolfenstein 2009 yesterday and can't install that too, I tried to uninstall some games from control panel and it also goes "not responding", I ran anti-malware bytes and tweaking.com windows repair, doesn't seem to work. Im running windows XP and I also don't have a restore point from when the installations were okay.

Download & install CCleaner. Pay attention during the installation & uncheck the boxes for Google Chrome & Toolbar.

Once installed, run the Cleaner & remove everything it finds. Next, click on Registry, do a scan & remove all it finds. Then click on Tools > Startup & review the list. Disable everything that's not absolutely necessary. Once you've done those things, reboot, reopen CCleaner, click on Tools, & try uninstalling your programs from there.

Uninstall works now, but installation still goes "not responding" after reaching "preparing for installation" :/ This happens with every game, doesn't matter if from Disc or using daemon tools.

Just out of curiosity, which version of XP are you running, 32 or 64 bit? If you happen to be running a 64 bit OS, some 32 bit programs won't like it.
