mintInstall corrupted

Help!!

The mintinstall is corrupted regardless of what I do. I deleted the .xml file in the tmp folder. Yet, the problem persists. Can someone please help me out? Do I need to do a fresh install of mint? Help me...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just use Synaptic to install whatever it is you want.

Thanks for the advice...have been doing that ever since. But, even if I remove the package via Synaptic, the program still appears in the menu...hmmm **scratches head** :roll:

Does that happen even if you right click on the package in Synaptic and select 'Mark for complete removal'?
