    Help! Mac user doing PC stuff!

    Hi Everyone

    I JUST got my PC (to host my VSTi's)

    Was installing GPO and on the third disc, it came up with an error message. It basically said that there was an installation file that was corrupted!!

    So what do I do?

    I am running P4 2.6 ghz 1.5 GB ram - Win XP pro

    Any ideas? GPO installed great on the Mac side - but not with Windows.

    Should have stuck with a Mac.

    Generally that means a bad read on the media. Check the disk for scratches and big fingerprints and try again.

    While we're on the subject, what kind of virus protection software and spyware protection software are you installing on your PC? Have you downloaded all the Microsoft security updates through Windows Update?

    In some cases virus protection software might cause an installation of PC software to fail, and it may be necessary to temporarily "snooze" or disable the virus protection software during the installation.

    But I have no specific experience with trying to install GPO on a Windows XP box.

    My music PC's are not internet connected. So no firewalls, no antivirus, no updates, no security issues.. I NEVER update Windows unless some piece of software won't run otherwise. I get software updates on another machine and burn them to CD.

    I would guess there is a corrupt file on the media as well..perhaps dirty disc or a scratch.. sorry to hear it..that sucks.

    I got that kind of error with an install disc for SID XL. I used a motorized CD/DVD cleaner from Memorex and after a minute of scrub-a-dub in that unit - it loaded without a hitch. Oddly enough, manual cleaning didn't seem to help at all - only running it through the machine had any positive effect.

    Sadly I think this is the only way you're going to keep your PC virus free...
