Nvida geforce mx 440, and athlon xp 2000+

realtek network card, 10 mbit

i had mathematica 4.1 installed, deinstalled, installed 4.2
it crashed saying it coulnd create start menu entry.
i didnt care, and made one myself, to problem....

there seem to be quite a few people out there who have this problem.:
