Each time I install or uninstall software on my NT4.0 workstation I get the following error message:  isset_se caused an access violation in setup.exe at 0x800000008.  Choices offered are close or ignore.  The install or uninstall appears to proceed without problem after selecting ignore.

If you have any anti-virus software running, disable it before you try to install any software.

I have don that ... as a matter of fact I got the setup error when I attempted to install McAfee.  I had uninstalled the previous version (through Windows add/remove programs) and then started the setup of version 4.02.  It doesn't seem to matter if I select close or ignore - the message goes away and the setup application continues.

Here are the common causes of thsi problem I have seen before :
 
 - Norton AntiVirus version 4.04 is installed and Norton AutoProtect is enabled.
 
 - You use LiveUpdate for Norton AntiVirus to download an updated version of Norton AntiVirus.
 
 - Microsoft IntelliPoint software is installed on your computer, and the Point32 program is currently running.
 
 - Microsoft IntelliMouse or Microsoft IntelliMouse Trackball software is   installed on your computer, and the Mswheel program is currently running.
