I`ve supervised at least a dozen installations of XP SP3 without a problem. What kind of keyboard and mouse is he using? Can he try another set?

Some more info would be useful. Is he running Norton AV:click here

Has he checked out Ms steps to take? click here

Has his machine an AMD processor?

I would add: Has he read the other threads on this which cover the subject exhaustively? Some have had no trouble, others have. I had a problem with MCE and I suspect anti virus. Ask for his system details, make of machine and processor, and what firewall and anti virus software he is using and I am sure the problem can be solved. Do read the other threads as this question keeps coming up and I wonder why no one seems to look at the data on the system.

Hi Everyone Sorry for being so long in replying. It would appear tha he has found other troubles which I am told make it necessary for a rebuild so I will close this thread down. Thanks to you people for your initial help. If and when I learn more I will post back.
