Pre-installation advice

The most important thing to remember is to disable any antivirus protection.

Restart your computer after disabling the virus scanner (do not just log off and on). If using an older version of Windows such as 95, 98 or ME use ctrl/alt/del to shut down everything except for Explorer and Systray.

You MUST disable *all* Norton and McAfee products, especially crashguards, disc utilities etc etc.  Do not disable any firewall that is running.

If you are using a newer operating system such as Windows ME or Windows XP, create a system restore point, just in case things go wrong.

The same procedure should be followed before installing or removing any programme. If a file is being used by a background process it will not be replaced or updated, even if its replacement is essential to the successful completion of the installation or removal.
