  1. 2 days ago i bought a brand new harddrive and install windows xp pro on it. When i try to install games such as battlefieldvietnam,battlefield1942 i get an error saying "THE INSTALLSHIELD ENGINE (ikernel.exe) COULD NOT BE INSTALLED. (0x10000)" On my other drive those games and other worked without a problem. I dunno how to fix it. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME?

    oh i didnt notice that it said "access denied". try to enable viewing of hidden folders/files. make sure you're the admin and have viewing priveleges of the file.

    these things that im telling you to do....im not really sure that it will help. im just going on what you tell me...so anyway: in my computer when in a folder, on the left should be your folder tasks. one of them should be something like show all contents of this drive. click it.
