    I'm trying to install an exe.file I brought to the pc on a flash drive. But whenever I double click it, it just loads for a second and then nothing happens. Same thing when I take the file of the drive and put it on the desktop. Running Windows XP SP2. HELP!!

    It would be nice if you told us what program you were trying to run since most of us aren't psychics. Help us help you.

    If it's a downloaded program, try downloading it again.
