    hey what's up

    AWESOME SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok here's my problem

    i rebooted my computer. Before i rebooted i had ms office xp on my comp. then after i rebooted i installed some windows updates for the xp like the windows service pack and other security items. after that i installed zone alarm pro and a virus scan program. When i try to reinstall my ms office xp professional (more specifically when i double click on the set up icon) it goes to a window saying "preparing to install..." and it just sits there. when the mouse pointer is over it, it remains an hour glass. nothing happens.

    I have a hewlett packard laptop with windows XP.

    Thanks for any kind of help you can give.

    Try disabling your anti-virus software when installing.
