Clear out your temp file.

Make sure there arent any apps open, especially antivirus proggies.

Also, make sure you arent getting CD-ROM errors (check the event viewer.

When you say freezing, does it freeze up your whole comp, or the installation just isnt proceeding?

I tried clearing the temp folder, it did not work. only the installation freezes, the computer keeps working fine.

Did you try the rest of my suggestions?

How long is it freezing? On occasion, some apps may stop for a few minutes, then continue. If it lasts longer than 5 minutes, then there may be something funky going on...

i found the problem. it's really stupid of windows t do that. i used to try to install the programs with an account which has admin rights. but when i ligged on as an admin, every thing worked fine. is there any thing to do to be able to install programs from an account with admin rights.

admin rights

not for sure about the home version, i have pro, but should still be the same:

control panel > user accounts > user name .... change the type of account to admin, not limited.

may have to do this from the admin account.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
