Add windows component

I'm trying to enable my XP based laptop to send faxes. Unfortunately, when I try use control panel to "Add Windows Component," I keep getting the message: Another copy of this setup program is running. Please wait until the other setup program is completed before attempting to run this program.

It never finishes and I can't locate it in task manager to shut it down. Anyone any bright ideas?

go to run and type msconfig, to see what you have running at start up

Well, I have removed sysocmgr.exe and the add windows component wizard started, until I got the message "Unable to open information file fp40ext.inf. The specific error code os 0x2 at line 2088999411"

Hmmn. Thanks for quick response folks. But this is getting me nowhere at the moment and Santa is a coming. So, cheers for help. I'll look into this in more detail next week. If I succeed, I'll post the answer.
