    He said that he hasen't installed anything because he doesen't know how. I haven't tought him that yet. I am teaching him how to use linux and I have never seen this issue before.

    It's a new one to me also. Was the iso downloaded from the Mint site? Was the md5sum checked?


    Thinking about it, I'd get a new iso from a different mirror, verify the md5sum and re-install

    Is Mint installed on its own partition or is it the wubi (mint4win) install?
