I have installed win98SE on my system and have no trouble installing some programs until I try to install Office 2000, Norton SystemWorks 2001; when I put in the program CD the reader spins noisily and the system slows down to almost a halt. Nothing else happens. I must remove the CD after a long time to prevent a deadly lockup. I ran file checker and it led me to replace the "setup" file, but to no avail.
I was able to run the Norton utilities fron the disk which "found several problems....which it 'fixed' .... but still no improvement.
Note: I have done the same frustrating mess to my other computer whoich I have reformatted umpteen times trying to fix this.
I suspect I have a corrupted file on my startup disk which I used for the installation so I will use your method for making a working one (Thanks!)
What advice can you give me.... PLEASE!!!!!!
