Whenever starting up Mathematica 8 for Students I receive the following message:
A serious error has occurred while Mathematica was starting up. Mathematica will probably not function properly until this problem is resolved. You may want choose to continue anyway, but Mathematica may crash or exit without warning.
The installation of Mathematica may be corrupted...Error code: 498
Now it doesn't give me the option to continue to start up Mathematica, only the option to quit and I've tried re-installing it twice to no avail, can anyone shed light on what is occurring and how to correct it?
