Vista Home Basic Error 1606 %PUBLIC%\Desktop\

I've recently had Norton Anti-virus 2009 and when i went to get my live
updates 3 of them wouldn't install.
I wasnt too worried about this because i figured i'd uninstall it and
re-install it to see if it fixes the errors.
Instead of this being an easy task before it would finish updating i
kept getting this error %PUBLIC%\Desktop\

i decided to get rid of Norton and use Avast because i dont have time
to fool around, but now the problem has come back, and its stopping me
from installing Windows Microsoft Office.
I cant run it from the disk so i opened the setup.exe folder as an
admin to run it and i keep getting the Error: 1606 %PUBLIC%\Desktop\
message/
i cant find anything on it and all the forums i do find are for XP.

I'm also having trouble with my desktop because i cant rename my
folders.
If i change the name it'll automatically switch back.
If i create a new folder and try to change the name it wont let me
either.
It'll either switch back to New Folder or it'll say that folder name
that i create doesnt exist.

Id appreciate it if anyone could help me
or if you know of any other sites with info related to my issue

Re: Vista Home Basic Error 1606 %PUBLIC%\Desktop\

Hello everyone,
Well, I have returned to post my results after searching for a solution
for hours and finally arriving to one that was specific to my
problem....and I decided to share with others experiencing a similar
problem.

I had a similar problem....It took a couple of hours of searching but I
followed the instructions located here
'_http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886549/_'
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886549/) on a microsoft support page
and so far the problem has been fixed.

Hope this helps!!!
Good luck
Timothy
