The first thing I would try is uninstalling the half installed program with add remove programs in control pannel.

If that dosent work, check device manager to see if there is a problem with the CD drive.

FIRST though check that the CD is in good condition. A bad disc can cause problems like this.

Close all your other running programs during installation. Make sure you are not connected to the internet during this, as this also includes your AV and firewall. See if this makes a difference.

Can you use this CD drive for anything else? No other problems with it? Do you have another CD drive you can try instead?

There's a few people on this forum with ghosts in their machines!

But seriously, I heard of a guy who had a similar problem. He said he sorted it out by "drinking so much that I didn't care if it worked or not"
