Strange gaming sofware install problem

I am trying to re-install fifa06 and Wcup06 on my pc. Both games get to about 40% install and then xp re-boots. A blue screen appears for less than a second so cannot read what it says.

Both games are 100% official. I have done a virus scan and used spybot. I have deleted any trace of the previously installed game. Could it be a programme called starforce that I have read about or AV or firewall.

Please could anyone advice me what to do. Thank you

Have you looked on the support website for the games? Or spoken to their support line (though I accept it *may* be a premium number)?

It may be an issue they are aware of with a known fix or workaround.

Will try that. Just realised posted this in the wrong forum.

Any other advice before I contact EA.

What security software are you running? Are you dissabling it before you install?

Good point; just realised that I did change from avg to avast about a week ago on a recomendation.

I will try again tonight when I get home and unistall avast to see if that is the problem.

I finally got to see the blue screen that comes up about 40% into the install but it is vague to say the least. It goes on about checking software and hardware.
