    Hi,
    i got a new laptop yesterday and i'm having a problem with installing some programmes.
    Some programmes install perfectly fine and on others the setup file doesnt open and causes my computer to crash.
    any help would be appreciated :)
    thanks

    List some information about your computer like version and ram and the problem programs.

    If it is a 64 bit version one problem is compatible software sometimes use 16 bit installers which don't work on 64 bit. If this is older software right click go into properties and select compatibility mode for XP and see if that help.
