L8ly when I've been installing games & software it's been showing these errors.. On my medieval total war kingdoms then I have b4 been able to play it with no problems or lag but now it shows an error like this when it starts installing after about 2 secs in the main installation: Feature Transfer error Feature: main Component: bin File: Error: Catastrophic failure & then when I tried to install things to get rid of the problem (eg. registry cleaners) then they'd either do nothing or have a very similar error instead saying Feature Transfer error Component: ISDev Merge module File: Error: Catastropic failure plz need help, if tried looking elsewhere but no1 else seems to have the same problem as I do..

Maybe the hard drive needs a disk cleanup and a defragment. When is the last time that was done?

disk cleanup and defragmenting has nothing to do with that kind of error, you will get a slower drive but not such an error, that is a software error(Windows or game)

When I have installed the update manager (odly it finished installation) then I can't find it, this could be it not allowing me to install or maybe it's in a very specific folder, there is no shortcut since whatever is happening has caused the shortcuts on desktop & all programs to stop working.. So is their a specific folder where it is installed, if not then I might need to send my PC to the computer shop to get it repaired..
