Reinstall and then Uninstall using the Windows Uninstaller.

Others with more knowledge may well give more information but it could be a virtual memory problem and increasing it could solve your snag.

How much free space is there on your hard disc?
If not much try gaining more by doing a clean disc op.

A restart sometimes helps as remnants of another program can be using memory.

Try temporarily turning off your anti-virus.

What operating system? How much RAM?

thx guys...Wee eddie..it worked a treat,THX.Woolwell..am still new to all this pc lark..but with the people on here giving help..i am slowly getting there..thx again.My hard drive is only 40gb.internal..and the external is 80gb..so thats why i wanted to load it on the 80gb drive,the ram is 512..is that enough?I thought that with putting it on the external drive i could save space and just have the internal drive for windows..so it loads quicker.THX again
