    First Name:
    Im trying to install a new self extracting program.

    I clicked the setup file and it seems to want to start to open but in a blink, it stops.

    Under lying the "installing" progress report, is an error message,

    "Runtime Error!
    the application has requested runtime to terminate in an unusual way.
    please contact the application's support team for more information"

    the question is, is it my machine or the application?

    I went to regclean.com which turned up something like "1700 problems" however
    a) the pc works pretty well except for installation of this program and
    b) im a bit reluctant to run anything that manipulates the registry

    has anyone used it? do they recommend it? do I need it? and will this cure the install problem?
