    hi all just installed xp home on a friends pc it all went on fine then
    i went to install virtual java machine and a box keeps coming up saying the following : extracting file failed. it is most likely caused by low memory (low disk space for swapping file) or corrupted cabinet file.
    i have checked the files and they are ok , the hdd has 22 gb free ! and it has 512 of ram .
    all the drivers that are in use were put on by xp i have not had to put any third party drivers in.
    also i get the odd blue screen of death of which i have never seen on xp before in over 1 year of use ?
    any help would be great many thanks.:(
