Longman Exploring Science kills Windows
Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this.
My colleagues installed the software onto a teacher's laptop. Rebooted it, straight away it wouldn't start up Windows, came up saying hal.dll was missing. Consistent (usually) with a hard drive failure... so they abandoned that and started installing it on another laptop, which did almost exactly the same thing. I looked at the drive using an Ubuntu live CD and it seems like half the windows installation is missing, along with most of the teacher's docs.
Only thing I can think is that the software might not like SP3... but it still doesn't make sense.
So unless anyone has a better idea, I'm going to put it down as a very bizarre coincidence.
