Corel Photopaint won't run (Just gives GPF)

I can't get Corel Photopaint to run on my computer (233MMX, 128Mb (2x64Mb DIMM), Matrox Millenium, 15Gb HD's, SB32 PnP, Plustek OpticPro 4800P Scanner (No drivers or Twain installed yet - I think))
I'm running Win95 OSR2 with IE4.0. I know I have installed this without problems a few months back but now when I install it all I get when I try to run Photopaint 7 is the following error:-

PHOTOPNT caused an exception 03H in module PHOTOPNT.EXE at 0157:00525ec1.

Most of the other utilities ie. CorelScan etc. fail to run as well with GPF's or IPF's.

I have checked the system resources - 86%. I also tried safe mode but no luck either.

Anything else I should try before using another package?

Thanks - Paul

Try uninstalling, and then re-installing it. It may use a registry key, that could have got screwed up...

If not, try uninstalling any programs you installed before the error started. I know it's a long shot, but there might be a conflict there.

Good luck!
