    I would disable the scanner whilst trying to install the game. They usually causes problems with installations.

    Also, a cleanup of your 'behind the scene' programs maybe a good start:

    Go to Run and type MSINFO32
    On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here

    Okay, lets have a look...

    Microsoft Office: Resource hog that launches common MS Office components to help speed up the launch of Office programs. Some users claim there's no difference with or without it but it isn't required anyway.

    AIM: AOL Instant Messenger. If connected to the internet, automatically runs up AIM. Convenience more than anything. Available via Start -> Programs

    ScanRegistry: keep

    TaskMonitor: The Task Monitor checks the disk-access patterns of programs when they are started and stores this information in log files in the Applog folder. Task Monitor also records the number of times you use a program. The Disk Defragmenter tool uses this information to optimize your hard disk so that programs that you use frequently are loaded faster. Not required - but can be useful

    SystemTray: keep

    LoadPowerProfile: keep

    CLMFrontPanel: System tray status/display/configuration utility for a number of modems. Can be disabled by right-clicking on the tray icon. If disabled, connection status is lost

    PCCIOMON.EXE: PC-Cillin 2000 antivirus software. This is the actual virus-scanner

    pop3trap.exe: PC-Cillin 2000 antivirus software -> E-mail scanner

    WebTrap.exe: PC-Cillin 2000 anti-virus software -> ActiveX filter. Guards against malicious ActiveX programs, etc

    EM_EXEC: Logitech Mouseware driver. Needed to support some additional functionality of Logitech mice/trackballs such as "SmartMove". If you disable it and find you don't need it leave it disabled

    MMTray: Musicmatch Jukebox icon in the task tray. Often supplied with HP CD-RW drives. The program works fine without it

    LexStart: Lexmark printer software may add Lexstart.exe in the startup folder to handle print commands that you send to the printer. Sometimes required for the printer to work correctly - not in the case of a Lexmark Z42 for instance

    ftpqueue: Part of WS_FTP Pro from Ipswitch. Queueing facility for scheduling FTP transfers

    StillImageMonitor: Disabling StillImageMonitor will make the front panel buttons of supported scanners non-functional. You will need to enable the file to use the front panel buttons of the scanner. Alternatively, scan manually via your scanning software

    AEZBProc: IBM Aptiva keyboard customizer - enables certain special buttons on keyboard for CD operation, volume control, and few quickstart buttons. Keyboard will work without it but you lose the special functions

    SchedulingAgent: MS Scheduling Agent displayed as a box with a stopwatch in the System Tray that is only needed if you have regular scheduled disk defragmenting, ScanDisk, etc. Required if you have regularily scheduled events such as weekly virus scans

    Okay. Go to Run and type MSCONFIG, startup tab. Uncheck the ones you don't want, apply and restart.
