yes, it was installed ok on the toshiba laptop, but there must be some feature in win xp that allows program installation that is missing on the desktop.

WARNING: Editing Registry can be dangerous if done in wrong manner. If you are not comfortable with registry editing forget this post. Improper registry edit can crash your system.

1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

2. Expand the following registry subkey:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\

You'll see it before zone number 0, there is a extra (parasite) zone. You should delete that extra (parasite) zone from there.

That's all! Command buttons will appear

because that solves the problem stated here!

by the way it doesn't change the internet settings... it changes (removes) the extra parasite registry entry that is not needed and therefore fixes the problem...
