First, thanks so much for everyones help!!!!!!!!!
I am such an idiot, I know better than to try old versions of anything..and I also know to download from companies site if possible. And the person who had the bright idea to install 5.0 and then go up to 6.0 was me...I don't know what I was thinking...anyway..
I logged into his computer as myself and didn't get the spiderman files..I figured that those spiderman files must somehow be associated with his log on and hence his "theme"...I changed his theme, rebooted and no more spiderman files...(YIPPEE)
but then I was still stuck with the initial problem of bad install of version 60
well, then I thought, it must be a permissions problem, even though him and I are both admins on his machine...I did a command prompt cacls and set admin privileges to everyone and everything under documents and settings folders....
then tried an absolutely fresh install of 6.0....and it worked!!!!!!!!!!
he is now, as I type this setting up his SPIDERMAN theme......
thanks again for all of your help..
