Dragoneer Posted February 12, 2007 Share Posted February 12, 2007 After installing Microsoft updates & trying to install WMP 11 (76 of them-feared getting updates from prior bad experiences so never installed any on this computer) WPM 11 still would not install. A message stated I couldn't install it without updates. I have/came with WMP 10. It then messed up Windows Media Center-only My Pictures, More Programs and Settings were available. I fixed it by using Program Access and Defaults. However since 11 wouldn't install, I System Restored-I manually set a point before installing updates & attempt at 11. Prior to all of this, the feature in Windows Live Messenger to access Hotmail e-mail directly wouldn't work. I contacted Support-10 days of trying almost everything, no solution. Sometime after Restore, I guessed that it had something to with .net (not Paint.Net) and installed IE7-had IE6. The IM access worked, but days later I tried to use Paint.Net (obviously Paint.Net stopped working AFTER the update fiasco but didn't realize it at the time) and it won't allow me to uninstall or install & the pdncrash Notepad is blank! I tried using the removal tool in FAQ's, but it caused Paint.Net not to appear in Add or Remove, (I probably did something wrong why the tool did this). To fix this I decided to Restore. Also, I then realized that it's possible my IM feature didn't work after installing Paint.Net 3.0-had the previous version, hence the mention of the IM e-mail feature problem. I then Restored before IE7, which was the best spot, and Paint.Net now appears in Add/Remove. However, the IM e-mail feature reverted to not working. PLEASE HELP! I still want to use it, but at this point I still can't use, remove or install 3.0. VITAL SPECS 1.80GHz M processor, 1.00 GB RAM. Error message: Paint.Net has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
