Games won't install :(

I'm trying to install Pharaoh on my Windows XP SP2 system. When I ru
the autorun and click install, it goes to the "install shield wizar
screen", but only reaches 92% before it closes and no setup scree
shows up at all. Can someone help me fix this problem, Thanks :D
On my dad's computer, the same thing happens only it closes at 99%.
BTW, this also happens on my other City Building Series Games (b
Impressions Games, Sierra) including Caesar III.

Here's a screenie of the problem:

If you have a firewall running while your trying to install maybe that's the
prob but minamize the game while it's being installed and maybe you have a
firewall box saying to allow or not allow you know. Oh and it could be with
virus scan too. I know because I had to disable my firewall to load a few
games on my com.
