Running XP Home & XP Professional
have downloaded Media player 9 but it will not install correctly. using the wizard it gets half way through set up and I get error message (cannot find msdmo.dll try reinstaling) this does not work. msdmo.dll is definately on the PC.
Any advice please

I had this once before. I ended up re-downloading with antivirus and firewall disabled ( yes, I know ). I also had to Ctrl-Alt-Del everything but explorer and systray prior to ( finally ) installing correctly. Seems AV can corrupt a downlaod / installation.
I sweated buckets. . . . : }
