    Dave,

    This message seems to be specific to programs that use InstallShield to (un)install themselves; for the moment I don't think it is a Windows problem. I found a suggestion to clear out your Temp folder before (un)installing. In WinXP, the default location of Temp is Cocuments and Settings<username>Local SettingsTemp where <username> is your Windows user name.

    I'm still having problems here and it doesn't seem specific to any one program or installer.

    If in Outlook Express after recieving a Mail with a link on it (as Woody's), if I click on the link, nothing happens.
    There are problems elsewhere also
    I think something is #crewed up some-where.
    I tried a system restore but this was switched off.

    Is there a way to repair XP without doing a fresh install and losing everything.

    I solved it.

    Apparently it was corrupted by installing Roxio Easy CD Creator.

    I ran an upgrade from my WinXP installation disk and this fixed the problem.

    Thanks all for the help.
