Every time I try to install certain programs like The Font Thing, MS Office extras, or other programs of the like, I get this message. I attmepted to replace the autoexec.nt, command.com, and dosx.exe files but that didn't help either. I checked the RAM using memtest86 (ran about 5 passes) and it checks out OK.

Did I miss something?
