Windows Installer 2 could be damaged. Try Start, Run, 'sfc /scannow', OK.

Graham, have tried sfc/scannow but unfortunately no difference. Have also tried microsoft article 315346 as you suggest. The Edit String in the Value box was wrong and I corrected it. No joy, still the same problem. On a brainwave I went & changed to work under W2000 via properties and that worked, why I don't know. However on boot up it still says Installshield not found ,iKernell not loaded, so not yet resolve. Thanks anyway.
