OK!!... I have been going over this thread to see if something was over looked and ran into something got me to thinking, you stated in your first post "it gets to the final stage where it says "Finishing Installation" "
That last stage of the installation is when the install package installs the VSO software driver(Burn engine), do you have any program that monitors the installation of software program and/or drivers ?
Please do a test installation of DVDFaband make the following change during the install...when you get to the screen where you are given the options
Install VSO burn engine
Create a desktop icon
Create a Quick Launch icon
Remove the check mark next to "Install VSO burn engine" to see what happens
please note that the screen that states "Finishing Installation" may take up to a minute or two so just wait
