    What Windows version and Service Pack are you using?

    Is this just games or is it any application that fails at install?

    I would try disabling your Anti-Virus software and trying the install again, but only do this if you have downloaded a game from the actual makers website, if you have downloaded a game from a random download site then you are likely to have a potential security/malware issue.

    Also if you are using Vista/Win7 then right click the setup file and choose Run as Administrator and see if that helps.

    If running as Admin isn't making it work, please give us as much details as possible about the install problems. Does it always happen at the same spot, and if so where is that spot? Have you tried installing in Safe Mode? Has the game worked before so this is new? And anything else you might think of.

    It would also be useful to know what kind of error message you get (if any) when something fails to install. :)

    Anything apart from just "the source file is corrupted" I should say . . .
