    Hey guys.

    Having a problem whilst installing a couple of games on the ol' PC such as Halo and GTA amongst others.

    As I am installing them they either do not install or they do not install setup files etc. It mentions something about "please close all programs etc as setup files will not be installed" etc but nothing is running at all.

    And still, it manages to tell me there is something.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Well I haven't got a boot disk, and also I checked that installation thing and didn't do a thing.

    Is it an original game or a 'copy' - if original then it could be your CD's buggered - try copying the CD to your hard drive and then running it from there - make sure you have the latest updates as well..the fact that this happening on more than one game suggests you have a problem in Windows - so try a repair (no need to reinstall)

    Stupid question, but it's not a space issue is it? You do have the space to install these games?
