    Unhappy Installation Problems

    Hi, I've just formatted and re-installed Windows XP Professional onto my computer, the installation went well with no problems at all. But after I try to install programs, the problems begin. The autorun refuses to load, and when I try to manually install the program (setup.exe) the window freezes.

    I have tried installing Office 2003 and various other programmes from my backup disk. They all refuse to work. I don't think that it is the CD drive that is the problem, otherwise Windows wouldn't have been able to be installed, right?

    What exactly did you copy to this backup disk / CD?

    You didn't copy the program files to it before you formatted did you?? Thats most probably why it doesn't work.

    Its not the MS office 2003 CD is it?

    I would also check Device manager and see if any entries are showing a ! X or other.

    I have some MS word documents, some pictures and some setup files for programmes like Firefox, iTunes, WinRAR etc.

    I DID copy the program files to it before I formatted, but no other setup files work even from CDs like Photoshop. It just freezes the window when I try to press setup.exe and when it starts to autorun, it usually comes up with a error prompt.

    I don't think it is MS office 2003 CD as I tried a driver/chipset CD before it and with the same problems.

    There are nothing showing a ! X or anything in Device Manager.
