I can't install any software.

A. A. Sometimes the file config.nt can become corrupted, specifically the files= line, therefore:

  1. Start Notepad (Start - Programs - Accessories - Notepad)
  2. Open %systemroot%/system32/config.nt, e.g. d:/winnt/system32/config.nt
  3. Check at the bottom the line
    files=40
    If the files is something like
    files=20$%THY
    it has been corrupted and you should change to only have a number after the equals sign
  4. Save the file
  5. Reboot
