    Hello.
    I want to install XP3 pack for my windows, and I can't do it.
    Every time i got message that setup cannot copy the file atapi.sys. I search over the internet and find that if you got installed Alkohol 120, that problem may occur, so I should uninstal alkohol first than try to instal SP3 again.
    I dont know why i had problem with uninstaling Alkohol. It showed me from add remove programs that there is trial version, so I uninstaled it, but Alkohol was still on my computer, but not in add remove programs. So i just deleted all alkohol files myself with shift+del , than run ccleaner to clean registry.
    Now i,m trying to instal XP3, but nothing change, still getting the same message.

    Please help, what should I do.

    Try disabling all firewall and anti-virus software on your computer.

    Thanks for your suggestions, but I've already solved my problem. I serched over the internet and find that I need to change name of this Atapi.sys file to Atapi.old. I did that and SP e has installed without any problems.

    Thank you for your response.
