"unfulfilled system reboot request"

  hippie54 03:59 11 Jul 2007

Running Windows XP Pro, i have tried several times to install new Serif software from a cd only to receive a message saying "the installation is unable to begin due to an existing unfulfilled system reboot request being detected. Please reboot your computer and restart the installation"

Despite several reboots, cleaning the registry etc, the problem persists: any ideas on possible solution?

Have you tried a System Restore back a day or so?

I meant to add - and then try the installation again.

many thanks to 'Technotiger' and 'brundle' for your help:
I couldn't actually try system restore as i foolishly(?) had the facility turned off,

but the problem was resolved by following brundles link and following the advice from serif

Again, many, many thanks
