    Are you trying to install things on a limited account? Some programs have to be installed as an Administrator

    try putting your XP CD into your machine
    go to "RUN" and type
    scannow /f
    then hit enter this will scan your pc and restore/replace any damaged files, maybe the installer is damaged and needs repairing
