    Log onto your computer as an administrator and try to install it. If it still doesn't work, copy over Xobglu16.dll and Xobglu32.dll from the CD to your Windows folder and right-click each, click Properties, and change them both to read-only. After that, try installing the program again.

    ok which TI program are you referring to? TI Connect in general is very direct and simple to use.

    Typing in something like "reformat c:\\" should fix most any problem you have.
