    hi there,

    when i open my windows, a msg said my HVideoS COM Server has an error..
    and my msn messenger doesnt work, so i reinstalled it, and it said my MsiExec.exe has an i cannot reinstall my msn too.

    i tried to d/l norton and see if i was infected, but the same msg MsiExec.exe has an error appears again.

    Use an online virusscanner (like ) to check for virusses first.

    Perhaps an online trojan scanner is usefull. I don't know if it will work, but you might try one:

    For instant messaging get a different client (like Trillian), saves you the hassle installing Microsoft stuff that wants to hook into the operating systrem. Malware tries to corrupt the operating system, so better leave it alone.

    Good luck on your thesis...

    I uninstalled the Logitech Print Server from my system using the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs function and it removed the problem. Hope this helps.
