Vista Home Basic Error 1606 %PUBLIC%\Desktop\

Posted: 03-07-2009, 08:01 PM

I've recently had Norton Anti-virus 2009 and when i went to get my liv
updates 3 of them wouldn't install
I wasnt too worried about this because i figured i'd uninstall it an
re-install it to see if it fixes the errors
Instead of this being an easy task before it would finish updating
kept getting this error %PUBLIC%\Desktop

i decided to get rid of Norton and use Avast because i dont have tim
to fool around, but now the problem has come back, and its stopping m
from installing Windows Microsoft Office
I cant run it from the disk so i opened the setup.exe folder as a
admin to run it and i keep getting the Error: 1606 %PUBLIC%\Desktop
i cant find anything on it and all the forums i do find are for XP

I'm also having trouble with my desktop because i cant rename m
If i change the name it'll automatically switch back
If i create a new folder and try to change the name it wont let m
It'll either switch back to New Folder or it'll say that folder nam
that i create doesnt exist

Id appreciate it if anyone could help m
or if you know of any other sites with info related to my issu
