did you verify the disk when you burnt it?

do you have any single use CDRs you can try?

How old is the cd-rom drive, some really really really really old ones can't read CD-RWs?

I am facing many other issues also...like
i am not able to uninstall antivirus software,MS office and other apps too.
The machine gets hang sometimes.
My computer is not opening.
But in safe mode it was working fine.there too i couldnt unistall the softwares as the windows installer service was disabled.

Any solution ?
