Add windows component

I'm trying to enable my XP based laptop to send faxes. Unfortunately, when I try use control panel to "Add Windows Component," I keep getting the message: Another copy of this setup program is running. Please wait until the other setup program is completed before attempting to run this program.

It never finishes and I can't locate it in task manager to shut it down. Anyone any bright ideas?

go to run and type msconfig, to see what you have running at start up

Well, I have removed sysocmgr.exe and the add windows component wizard started, until I got the message "Unable to open information file fp40ext.inf. The specific error code os 0x2 at line 2088999411"
