any, as in ALL, or some?

Some programs that use older versions of installshield take a VERY long time to install due to incompatibilities with XP.

Start > run
eventvwr.msc
enter

That was fast.

Did you

1. NOTE THE TIME
2. INSTALL A PROGRAM
3. Then look at the eventvwr for Red Xs that happened DURING THE INSTALL...or did you just skip all that stuff?

We need to focus down on the problem at hand, then get to the other stuff if we need to
