Specs: Windows XP Pack 3
Trying to open a new disc 'Spring Cleaning' personal edition I get partial way with the Wizard then I get a pop-up saying 'Error 1608 cannot create in-stallion instance'.Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

That may be a blessing. If you need to clean up the computer safely, use this program. A lot of people use it and seem to be happy with it.

Always get advice from a reliable tech forum before installing magic computer fix programs off the net. Many are scams (or nearly so) and can make your computer worse.

EDIT:
Sorry, I missed the fact that it was a disc not a downloaded program.
There could still be risks tho.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Apparently it's a common message - Error 1608 cannot create (name of program) instance

The causes are probably similar.
Your user must have Computer administrator rights, for one.

Search for: Error 1608 cannot create

Read about what the common causes of the error are in the "hits" .

Ensure you have the latest version of Windows installer.

If you get it working be very careful when using the duplicate files removal facility.
Often programs have a specific location for the file copy they happen to use.
