    I just finished buildin my first PC.All apparently went well.I started installin Windows 2000, and when it got to bits of copying files, a lot of the files could not be copied.So i had to skip them. I then noticed once installation was complete that there is basically no internet explorer or outlook express.The folders for them are in the Program files folder but nothing is in the folders!!!Whats this all about?Any ideas much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Daniel

    When the installation says it can't copy a file, STOP RIGHT THERE! Only bad things happen if you skip files on the installation! It sounds like you have a bad CD, or some hardware issues with your system. Fix those before you attempt to install, and don't skip files if you want a working installation. :rolleyes:

    OK thanks, the only reason i skipped was because there was no option of cancelling the installation, so instead of just switchin off i just skipped them!!

    Thanks
