    When I try to install Office XP, I get the message that's something like...

    "There's another installation already in progress. Please exit that installation and try again."

    Rebooting the comp does nothing, i still get the same thing.

    any ideas?

    When installing Norton Systemworks 2k3, I get to the "Initializing" part of the bar, and then get nothing. I have to use the taskbar to manually exit.

    This also has happened on a few other programs. Does this sound like a bad XP install or something?

    is it a legal copy of XP?

    is it all up to date with the latest patches?

    I've heard of that problem. I think I remember hearing the resolution was a reg edit. Search around google and you'll probably find the answer.
