AUTOPLAY problem

  Sirpad 10:17 31 Oct 2005

I'm trying to install Sims for the kids (no really) and I get a message saying 'Setup is having trouble shutting down the Autoplay program. Please restart your computer and try again'.

I have started it again to no avail. Help! My life won't be worth living if I don't get this installed today.

Go to Start/My computer/right click on drive/properties/select Auto play/put dot on circle Select action/scroll down and select "take no action"
I think this will stop auto play while you install Sims.

This did the trick and I will live another day. Next question is 'will I ever be able to get access to my PC ever again'. I'll have to enforce earlier bedtimes.

Had a quick look at Sims, I can see why you may not get back on your computer:-)
