Did you close down all running programmes before you installed it.

yes i closed other programs by selective start up. if i uninstall works do you think my cd rom will be back in use.

I had a similar problem when I upgraded the OS on a Compaq PC from 98se to ME. If you find this to be your situation this link may help square you away.

The page rumblefish is trying to show you is accessible by using the "click here" sign and picking home tab.

Now tick on the microsoft knowledge base and type the number 281252 as rumblefish has said. This will take you to the link.

Trust microshaft to make it difficult.
