Quote:I was installing Age of Empires 2 while trying to surf the net at the same time.
When installing ANY program all ather programs should be closed.
Installing a program and surfing the internet both require resorces and the installation program is taking resorces away from your web browser and every time you open a web page it takes resorces away from the installation program. If your web browser takes all available resorces it can cause write errors corrupt files and cause the installation program to crash or worse yet crash your computer.
Also files that are in use can't be altered deleted or moved by the instalation program. I don't think Age of Empires 2 would need access to MSIE files but you never know they are both MS products
It's not like you were installing netscape navigator and surfing with Microsoft Internet Explorer.
