I've made a clean install on WinXP Pro with SP2, when I click on "Add/Remove
Windows Components" under Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel I get
the following error

" Another copy of this setup program is running..... " /OK

I've tried most things, checked for any instances of "msiexec", but nothing
seems to let me change windows components.

Thanks in advance

Kartik,

Open Task Manager and terminate all instances of "sysocmgr.exe". If that
does not help, try logoff and logging back in.

I have the same problem. I try everything: Reformat partions, reinstall xp,
change devices, but but nothing seems to let me change windows components. I
loock too for virus, spywheres, bios update, clear cmos, without sucess. I
need a solution because i have reinstalled xp 5 times in 2 days.

Thanks (sorry my english)
