Hi All,

My one home XP machine fell over so am in the process of a rebuild, it has to be XP as family know how that one works(?). The virus killing software started to misbehave (mmm odd haven't got time), then something else broke (darn! I will fix that when I get time) then XP elephanted up. So slightly hung over started the format C cycle have it booting to Win XP but can't get Security Essentials to install (it bombs with an Error code saying something is stopping it), or the virus killing software to reintall properly. I'm thinking virus, but I have only used the install media that came with the PC anybody any clues? or is it a plan to force the user to upgrade? (unlikely but...)
