Default General Installation Problem

Hey everyone. Ever since I had an MSN messenger virus attack, I am unable to install or uninstall anything. The installation and uninstallation wizard is displayed but when the progress bars reach the middle, it seems to freeze altogether. There is no message that indicates that installation or uninstallation is incomplete or failed. I'm at a loss right now and if anyone knows a solution to my problem, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You can try deleting in DOS with a boot disc then reinstall it in windows.
