Default Can't install or uninstall

Hi!

I don't know if it is a software problem or a SSD problem, if this post is misplaced, please change it.

I just have formatted the SSD, because I had some problems. And now I have the same problems as before formatting, now even worser. But the problems have appeared 3 days after formatting..

Dropbox just don't run. And when i shut down the computer it doesn't shut down, it stays in the point when all the desktop has disappeared and seem closing. But it stays without shutting down.
All of this happened occasionally before, but now it happens every time I log into the computer. By the way, I have an Acer Aspire with Win 7 on it.

And also now I can't install the firewall. And I can't uninstall it, neither, and neither the antivirus. Neither dropbox.
I just wanted to move to Kaspersky but Kaspersky doesn't install neither.

Any suggestions? Thank you bros. Sorry if you don't understand anything, I will answer as soon as possible.

Bye!

See if anything changes by booting into safe mode. (Press F8 as many times as possible before your computer says starting windows)

Check out sea Tools: SeaTools for Windows | Seagate
It a program that tests harddrive defects.

Guessing... On the OS Disk there is a Repair OS Utility. Look for it and run it.

Before running SeaTools check the manufacturers website to see if they have their own diagnostics software.

If you are having the same problems even after reformatting it is likely a Hard Drive issue.
However.....
By "reformat" did you:
A.) completley wipe the drive THEN reinstall Windows
B.) Just reinstall Windows
C.) Restore it to factory

Because if you did not COMPLETELY format the drive it could very well be a Registry problem..... There are registry settings that will remain if you do not actually Format the drive but reset or restore it. So keep in mind you could very well have to hunt down a Regsitry Key.
