Windows installer hangs

Hello,

I'm having some difficult problems installing some programs on my Vista Ultimate PC.

Typically, the installer will hang after a couple of steps, like approving an agreement and destination for install.

Then, it hangs. If I cancel it, it still hangs.

I then go to Taskmanager to kill it. But if I try to install anything else, it tells me it can't because the installer is still running.

This is happening for a bunch of applications. I'm executing the setup program as Administrator.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Thanks. However, that didn't seem to do anything noticable.

It's actually turned off already.

One thing I should mention (I just discovered) is that the installing program eventually times out with a message:

"Installer is no longer responding"
