    Have you tried disabling your antivirus software? That would be my first choice. Just be sure to disconnect your network cable before you do disable it. Plus, try disabling as much of the unnecessary software/apps that are running, such as CD image mounting programs like Daemon Tools, or Alcohol, and what not. Essentially anything that can interferre with the installation of the program.

    Try installing it in SAFE MODE, (F8 when your PC is about to boot into windows, go to Safe Mode.).

    This used to happen to me with some installers, they would crash half way through installing and I found out it was some corruption within windows itself.

    The only way I fixed this was to reinstall a fresh XP, but im sure you dont want to hear that.

    True, I had to reinstall XP SP2 when my Audigy2s software didnt want to install, it kept complaining that the RPC server was unavailable, reinstalled SP2 and all was well.

    Try ReInstalling SP2 for XP, and if that filas, a full reinstall.
