    strange problem

    ok here goes... my gf decided it would be a good idea to download a dodgy copy of zoo tycoon off of kazaa. well she installed it n decided it was rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish so she uninstalled it. now the problem is wen i try to install Halo the zoo tycoon installation screen comes up (obviously u cant install). SO how on earth do i get the halo installation screen to appear. im fed up of seeing a zoo tycoon screen! ive deleted every file associated with it and searched the regestry to delete any thing in there too. im completely stuck! help..,

    can you manually run the setup file from the halo cd perhaps? rather than let it autorun and load zoo tycoon,

    and its definately a halo cd in the drive... rather than a zoo tycoon one , how about try a different game, and see what happens, or clear out all your temp directories on your harddrive (c:\winnt\temp aswell as c:\documents and settings\<whoever>\local settings\temp),

    are you running setup.exe from the disk, or is there a .msi file you could run instead?
