Thanks in advance for any help rendered.

We recently had to cut back (way back) on expenses so shut off all satellite TV, House phones, and Internet.
We went with a Cricket UM185 uplink modem and it intalled and works great (although slow) on my PC and my laptop but in attempting to install on
my wife's HP Desktop (Pentium 4, 3ghz running XP Home SP3) we get InstallSheild Wizard Error 5001.
I called Tech support at Cricket and was told to Google the error code and I'd find an answer to the problem. Yeah, Right!
HELP please?!?!?!
Thanks, Dave

Looks to me like several possibilities.

You've tried uninstalling and then reinstalling?

You've run chkdsk /r on your boot partition...and then defragged same?

FWIW: That error doesn't appear to have any particular significance, IMO. Various persons seem to recommend running registry cleaners as a solution of sorts. I suggest that you NOT follow any such recommendation by anyone.
