      You could also go into the properties for the program and set it to run
      under Windows XP SP3 compatibility setting. I have found a few programs that
      needed this to run.

      Another thing is not avoid installing programs in the default locations,
      install them in a separate directory, for example in (c:\Bandmaster) as that
      will avoid the issues associated with virtual file protection in the program
      directory folders.
