Default XP Home Problems

Hey, I just done a clean install of XP-H and everything is playing up... I can't open Outlook Express, the splash screen just opens and locks up. I downloaded AIM and that refuses to open. I have SP2 on CD which quits as it starts to install. Windows Update will not install anything...

What causes XP to become so batty? Any solutions?

Formatted the drive "format c:" and then installed.

Few blinks during install, might have had something to do with it?

Also another annoying thing - when I type an address and hit enter, it doesn't always bother to go to the page.
