Setup.exe do not work

By info ·
Suddenly Setup.exe in my WinXP do not work. Afterdouble click on Setup.exe (InstallShield Corp)it start to show the timeglass and after a few second it stops with out showing any text message on the screen. When doubleclick again nothing happens and no timeglass is shown.
When clooseing Windows the setup sequence starts but then Windows is closing down. My theory is that another process is blocking the setup.exe to be executed.
Someone knows what to do?

in task manager and google any suspicious looking processes.Then boot your pc into safe mode and scan for viruses.Then you can rule out a virus.

don't forget

to scan for malware too. Malware causes more problems than you can shake a virtual stick at.

Also, go into SERVICES and see what is running, and what is set to run.

If you don't NEED it running, it shouldn't be running. If something doesn't list what it is, kill it.
