Authentication Error

I have loaded GPS software.
I disabled virus and firewall protection while installing. (as instructed)
All appeared to install correctly. (4 CD"s)
To open the program the instructions state " please insert any one of the CD"s to open program"
With CD in drive to open program I receive an error "unable to authenticate in time allowed" retry or cancel.
I am told by software provider ( not a XP/Pro/SP2 expert) that it must be a OS setting problem, possibly within SP2.
A search did not provide me any clues.
Can anyone confirm or refute this could be my OS settings.

Hi, for testing purpose only, try to disable your windows firewall (or any firewall you might have) I know you did the installation like this but there may be a missing exception in your firewall rules here.
