Windows Installer wanting to always install Roxio

Q: Windows Installer wanting to always install Roxio

Running Windows XP, and every time my windows starts up, it wants to automatically install Roxio. I set the service to disabled for the time being.

Is there something in the Registry I can look out for and/or change ?

Preferred Solution: Windows Installer wanting to always install Roxio

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Do you have Norton installed? If so, try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it to see if it gets rid of the problem.

Within the last three days my computer running Windows XP has started trying to install Roxio Media Manager. It keeps running over and over again and will not stop.

I have purchased Error Expert to try and stop it but it has not worked. Wondering a couple fo tings. If I totally uninstall Roxio Media Manager will that help? Not sure this would be a good thing but this is driving me crazy.

How do I stop windows installer from trying to install this progam?

Hi, when I am trying to stream audio from the web, Windows Installer pops up and asks me to install Roxio CinePlayer decoder pack. This is nothing more than a pain as if I cancel 2-3 times then the stream will operate through Windows Media Player. Can anyone help me to identify why this is happening?

Hi,
Recently I bought a laptop for my girlfriend (used) HP Pavilion:
AMD Athlon 1.6ghz 64 Bit
1gig RAM (2gig available)
nVidia Graphics Card

I installed Windows Vista Ultimate x64, we both loved it, ran smooth for about a day and then things went wrong. You know the normal Vista problems: shutting down unexpectedly, BSOD, bogged down. Anyways, I tested I think it was the first release MS came out with of Windows 7 and loved it but it was too buggy.

What do you guys think about me installing Windows 7 on her laptop?

Hi there. I recently received this gift (Thinkpad T420) with Windows 7 Pro 64. Although it is okay, I am much happier with my Windows 8.1 on my other laptop (which is dying). I've gone to the support/download drivers pages and found that there are only a few drivers available for Windows 8.1 (64bit). There are no audio drivers, no chipset drivers, no bluetooth drivers, etc. Would it be a HUGE mistake to install 8.1 on this box?

Every time I use anything with explorer, like moving files into folders and stuff like that, the Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 installer comes up. It asks for a disc to continue installing but I didn't get it off a disk and I also tried to repair it but it didn't work and I really don't want to uninstall it. Anyone know what to do?

Hi,

Every time I play a media file or access one of my external hard drives, I get a message saying "Please wait while Windows configures Roxio CinePlayer" and then "The feature you're trying to use is on a removable disc or CD-ROM that is not available". I've tried inserting the disc and installing Roxio CinePlayer which worked but the message still appears. If I try and cancel another box just appears. If I Ctrl+Alt+Del and force it to close than either Explorer or Windows Media Player closes as well. I'm using Windows XP Pro.

Please can someone tell me how to stop this from happening as it slows my computer down quite a bit apart from anything else.

Thanks,
Joe

I recently ran a registry cleaner program. No, I didn't make a backup of the registry first. Everything seemed fine until I tried to copy one file to another drive. I right clicked on the file, then dragged it to the new drive, then chose the copy command. Well, immediately, the installer program for Roxio Easy CD Creator launched. I clicked cancel. It launched again, I hit cancel. Then the copy worked after that.

This problem happens when I simply right click and make a copy of the file in the same folder, or if I drag and drop it to another hard drive to make a copy.

Is there a way to clean up the problem? I run Windows XP Pro.

Thank you.

So after I did a repair install of XP for a previous problem I went to Windows Update. It said I needed to install Windows Installer 3.1 to continue. Instead of saying it was done, it said it was unable to install. Then I downloaded the file manually and went to install. It said something about not having permissions, or access denied. I thought it was because my system restore was screwed up, but that's now fixed, so I don't know what the problem is now.

I finally did this & have gone back to a system restore point but still have this Installer box coming up.
It is getting annoying & time consuming.
I have googled it & found a multitude of answers....some i tried.....others seemd to complicated.
I am a novice at this.

Anyone with the patience to help me please?????

A:Windows Installer ...Preparing to Install.....

It seems as if you have done a poor un-installation of Office. Only ever un-install programs using the Add/Remove function in Control Panel.

Try reinstalling the Office package, restart, un-install from add/remove, restart then open Internet Explorer.

This should fix your problem.

If not post back.

I recently purchased software that requires that various Microsoft components be installed, including Microsoft Installer (MSI) version 4.5. I have tried to download the MSI 4.5 (WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe file) from Microsoft website but it will not install and leaves me with my current MSI version 3.1. During install of MSI 4.5 I get an "access denied" error, then computer undoes the changes and restarts leaving me with the MSI 3.1.

What would cause my system to not allow for the MSI 4.5 version to replace the 3.1, This is leaving me unable to install my recent software purchase.

I have Windows XP SP3/32 bit.
Thank you for your courtesies in helping me.

I reinstalled windows XP home edition with SP2 on my laptop and since then, the automatic update promts me to install Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1.
I hit install and after trying to install it, it says it was unsuccesfull....

Do I need to install this update? And if so, HOW?

If I don't, how do I stop it from showing up on the automatic update?

A:Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 Won't Install

Hello,That is an interesting error. If automatic updates refuses to instal the file, you should try instaling it manually. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en this is a link to the windows instaler page. Also, to stop an update showing in your update list, simply expand the update in question by clicking the plus sign and select the check box saying a variation of exclude from future searches.

After booting up and loading the desktop, icons, etc., I get a window that says Windows Installer is installing something, then configuring something called "Photogallery". While this is going on, I get another window saying something about Norton not supporting the repair function and to uninstall and reinstall. If I go to Norton, though, there appears to be nothing wrong with it.

Does anyone know what the heck this is about? I've tried a couple different programs to get rid of junk and fix the registry, hoping that would get rid of whatever it was, but it hasn't.

Ok Ive had this problem for about 2 weeks now.
Hardly anything will install without crashing. Im downloading what should be the correct installers of many things like java, shockwave and a lot more applications and they all crash within the first few stages within the installer and I get the error report thing. Same with AIM... It messes up 90% of the time I open it but it managed to install. MSN wont install either.
BUT ironicly. Every single VST and VSTi (theyre just plugins for music creation software... .ddls) Ive installed work - same with all my music apps.

One thing I tried was reinstalling windows installer. No luck - it did install but everything still messes up.

Im running XP SP2 on this machine simply because everything should work on it. Its the Professional 2002 version. I have 2GB of ram and a Q6600 quad core(this may be causing the problem, I dunno)

Also when I reboot it it is coming up New Hardware Found I don't know if this is to do with the same problem... I do know that nonew hardware has been put in for years so, why does this update keep wanting to be installed. I have installed it 7 times, it shows it was successful. I ran the malicious software tool and everything came out clean. How do I stop this update from installing over and over again? I have Windows XP. It is doing it on both my computers. I am ready to turn off automatic updates.

Hi there,

Whenever a guest logs onto my laptop, I get an installation error message that says it wants to install Vongo (I uninstalled it from my computer using my own login) and cannot find the Vongo.msi file. I cancel the message and it keeps reappearing.

How can I fix this please?

Thanks,
Lynne

Whenever I open up my outlook program Microsoft XP with FrontPage comes up trying to install. I have to hit cancel several times. It does this every time I want to send or receive email as well.

A:Microsoft XP with frontpage keeps wanting to install.

That means it could be missing a file/folder or have a currupt file/folder let it run, normally it will not ask for the disk but if it does just put the disk in.

This should only happen once.

If Toshiba has a driver for it for your OS and your model PC then you can be pretty confident that the adapter will work. If that is not that case there is no way of telling, at least for me, whether it will work fine, sorta work, not work at all, or even if the BIOS will let the laptop boot with the card installed.

A:Wanting to install Linux SUSE 10 thats out now, but have ?'s

The SuSE installer contains its own partitioning utility, no need for fdisk. SuSE 9.3 had the ability to resize Windows partitions, so I'd think SuSE 10 can do that too.
I always use a dedicated partitioning utility though - have had a couple of times when the Linux installer screwed up the partition table.

No need to make the CDs. The DVD is bootable.

A:How can I stop windows installer at start-up and install Windows Outlook on my comput

Hey, see if windows installer is in your startup entries:

- Open the start menu
- Type "msconfig.exe" in the search bar
- Press enter to open msconfig
- Goto the startup tab
- Look through these entries for "windows installer" or the path to windows installer
- If you find it:
> uncheck the box next to it
> click ok and restart to check
- If not:
> Post back and i'll do some reading into it

Cheers,

When my friend goes to install any software, he generally sees a message saying it is starting the Windows Installer, then a popup appears (attached) from Windows Installer that offers on option other than OK. Clicking OK just makes the popup go away, the install does not continue. I tried the install as administrator, did not help. I tried the compatibility troubleshooter, but it errors out without giving any info.

I've tried running the Microsoft tool that they offer for repairing Windows Installer, it finds nothing. I've also tried unregistering and registering msiexec.exe, did not help. Also ran regsvr32.exe /s %windir%\system32\msi.dll

Any ideas what I might try to fix this?

A:Cannot install any software - Windows installer popup

Version 5, is that right?

I say it's time for an In-Place Install.

Also, check for Sirefef, it interferes with EXEs. It specifically disables EXEs so you cant install any AV programs so it may be interfering with the installer.

Do the programs that are there run? You can do a quick test for Sirefef- Rename your Windows Defender folder to Windows Defender Old. then try the installer again.

If that dont work, then dig out your Install disk, you gotta do an In-Place Install. But try an SFC /Scannow a few times, and then a DISM to rebuild the windows image, sorry, cant remember the command line - Its in the tutorials, I'll find it.

Now I notice that I can't uninstall or install any new programs, and when I do, windows installer says "The windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running windows in safe mode, or if the windows installer is not correctly installed."

I'm not in safe mode. I've ran spyware scans and virus scans and nothing has came up.. So, I really have no idea what to do. I read to install something called windows installer cleanup, but I can't install any programs whatsoever..

There is a patch for an install error there. If that does not work, download and install the driver from the web site.

If neither works, post back and we will try something else.

the installer continually tries to install this program. It pops up a dialog box to click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'MyDVD.MSI' in the box below. then there is a drop down with c:\hp\tmp\src\'

This is driving me crazy. I cant get it to stop. please help

Greetings Oh wise ones...

I am Running Dell 8300 Dinension/ XP/ SP3/ 512 Mem/ Intel 4/
My Canon printer died, so got a Used, (but known working in good condition) HP Photosmart 2410xi All-in-One
and have not been able to install it in spite of every suggested method by HP. I now notice that the Windows
Installer file is missing from the Services, and it had been there 2 days before this Install effort started.
It appears that all the dependencies required for the Installer are in place and started, but IT is not listed.
I can't figure what went wrong, but any suggestions to recover it will be appreciated. Of course every attempt to
install the printer drives, runs into the missing Windows Installer problem.

Thanks in advance for your usually prompt and learned advice.

I am running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit OS. In an attempt to install the new iTunes 10 I receive an error that states that windows installer is not installed correctly. Is this a problem with Apple or with Windows?? This is the first time I have had a problem with an installation of any application with Windows 7. I did a complete uninstall of the previous version of iTunes and did so in the correct order per apples recommendation, and am attempting the download from apples recommended site. I have posted the same question in the apple support forum but I always seem to get better help with such fixes the the people here than with apple support. Thanks in advance for any help here.

A:Windows Installer Causing Install Loops

Hi rickster, welcome to BleepingComputer.

Just a thought, but have you run online scans such as Windows Live OneCare and /or MalwareBytes to check that there is not a nasty hiding on your system?

I believe someone playing with my PC erased an important file. System restore will not work, although all my restore points are there. Add\remove programs has disappeared from programs as well as a number of programs are not functioning. I can access the internet OK.

Windows update says Windows installer 3.1 needs to be installed. When I proceed with the install, I keep getting the following error message.
The file c:\windows\system32\msi.dll is open or in use by another application. I have tried to find out what is running or being used by this application and I can not find or figure it out.

A:Recent Problems with Windows Installer (also need Windows Install Clean Up help)

Hi and welcome to TSG!

Too bad you haven't had the chance to read the many many threads about staying away from registry cleaners. 2000 errors removed!!! You may have damaged your registry beyond repair.

So I, today, reformatted my PC.

After installing some bare essentials (anti virus and firewall mainly) I then loaded up the website for windows update.

I was prompted to install service pack 3 (after the windows installer update), so I did before anything else. After I restarted, I went to the update site again to do the remaining updates, but after they were downloaded, every install failed.

The same is happening with the Windows Live Installer (as I wish to install windows live messenger). However, I could install Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Media Player 11 with no problems.

Any help would be much, much appreciated. Anything I can do to help with the troubleshooting, just say.

Thank you.

[quick edit: Windows was installed with a service pack 2 era disk. Home edition, too.]

[Edit: After doing the method in this post, it now works.]
