    Yes re-install Windows. Then, make sure you have everything updated (drivers etc..) and make sure you have sufficient Virus and spyware protection. I use Avast and spybot, they both are free and both work quite well.

    i'd run windows update and then uninstall winrar and reboot then scan registry with either CCleaner or RegMechanic and fix up registry conflicks then reinstall winrar and try again.GL:toast:

    looks like a virus destroy your *.exe so the better way is reinstall windows because you don't know what other have infect

    I would say that Mcafee sucks @zz I support it at work and think its horrible .I like AVG virus scanner and its free .then adaware and spybot for that stuff.and avg rootkit for a weekly scan ...oh ya i LIKE PEST PATROLE(like adaware) too but its not free.

    If you like strong and light on resources, think about spending a bit on Nod32, but all other suggestions by the guys in this thread are sound.

    Norton is horrible. Heavy on resources, costs FAR too much for an anti-virus that performs no better than AVG (Which is free), and comes with countless number of programs that do everything you can do from within Windows (if you buy the full package which a lot of people do).

    I'm seriously considering switching to nod32 from AVG, but I've been with AVG for so long and it's free lol.

    As for the installshield wizard you are pretty screwed. You could try a repair install, I had the same problem and I managed to fix it with a repair install, so it may work for you.
