  2. I already responded to your warcraft 3 message. Fear installed for me with
    no problem. Though I didn't have to, You should try right clicking on the
    setup file and choose Run as administrator. You should also right click,
    choose properties and choose compatibilty and choose XP:SP2 mode.

    Also, under advance settings, performance, check to see if your DEP option
    is on. It was causing me some problems with FRAPs and TweakVI. It should be
    set to "Turn on DEP for essential windows programs and services only" If
    it's set to "Turn on for all programs" that's probably part of the problem.

    They are not newb questions, so don't be sorry for asking.

    Under explorer (don't use the Auto-run feature) go to your CD rom drive, and
    find the install.exe or Setup.exe and right (not left) click on those files,
    Choose properties from the menu, then click on the compatibility tab, The
    first option you should see Run in XP: Service pack 2 mode. Check that box
    and choose OK. Then right click on the file and you should see the option
    that says, run as administrator. Choose that and you should be god to go
