    Help with WIndows Essentials 2012


    I try installing Windows Essentials and it wont install! This came up for 1 hour

    Click image for larger version

    I got bored and cancelled the process and now the windows all user install service agent wont work, I cant log onto and internet connection won't come to my apps I have install.

    Do I have to refresh my computer or anything else?

    A refresh would be your easiest option. Remember that a refresh will remove any installed apps that were not pre-installed on the system and your data files will land in C:\Windows.old. Since that's the case, I like to suggest that afterwards, you install the apps you life, then create a new image using the "recimg" command line tool. That way your "refresh" will refresh with your apps installed and data intact.
