symantec solution but to no!

Re: Programs wont install on xp properly!

You could try system restore but that would put the spyware and junk
back on your computer.

You could also try to repair the windows installation by booting from
the windows XP cd, pressing Enter, hitting the F8 key to accept the
EULA and, if it detects your windows installation there should be an
option to attempt to automatically repair the selected installation.
(should be option R).  NOTE: this is NOT the option which mentions the
recovery console in the first screen, that option will only confuse you
unless you know exactly what file is causing the problem and wish to
replace it.

If it doesn't detect the installation or the repair doesn't work, which
it often won't when the problem is with certain critical system files
such as the registry which it won't overwrite, then you're only other
option is probably to do as Slayer suggests and reinstall from scratch.
 If you've got a secondary hard drive it can come in handy for
temporarily storing stuff you don't want to loose between

Just a wild guess, but does your user account have admin privileges?

No idea what that means, but it sounds like you might have some weird
hybrid of OSes there, (result of a duff upgrade?)  which would mean
that you should really do what the Slayer suggests, and go nuclear: ie
reformat, re-install...
