Takes a long time to install drivers in XP
Posted on 2009-05-09
Whenever I try to install a program and its associated drivers, it takes an incredible amount of time. The program will install until the point in which it tries to install the driver, then it seemingly hangs up. If I wait long enough (10-20 minutes) a Window will pop up asking to approve the non-Windows compliant driver. I click CONTINUE INSTALLATION, and the program will usually have another window or two pop up with the same message, then seem to install normally. iTunes is one such program, while another is Cisco Network Magic.
Afterwards, neither program works correctly. iTunes cannot burn CDs, and tells me so everytime I start the program. Network Magic gives me a Platform Service error everytime the computer starts up (Platform Service has encountered an error and cannot continue...)
I am running Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2.
Thank you in advance,
