    I have downloaded Nero 7.7.5.1 for installation on Vista RC1 build 5600. I used md5sums to check the checksum after downloading and it was fine.

    But the install will only unpack the cab files and then stops executing and closes.

    The machine is a p4 3ghz with 1 gb ram. I am working with a 3 day old clean Vista install on a new WD 250 gb drive.

    Does anyone have anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks for that Gwendolin, and i apologise for not searching properly before posting. I had read your second suggestion already, but i did not read the worm thread until after posting, and it in fact had the answer.

    I will confess now that i had tried to install and earlier version unsuccessfully, but cecause i had used windows restore to go back to a prior restore point, i thought i had gone back in time. Alas no, windows restore only fiddles with the registry.

    So i used the nero clean tool and all was well.

    Thanks again to you, and to joedrumma for his "side trip" post.
