Preferred Solution: Solved: Windows Installer popping up at startup

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.)

Every time I login to my account, windows installer pops up and then this error pops up.
Is there a way I can prevent this from popping up? It started happening last reboot.


I've already tried system restoring. The last thing I did was uninstall a few programs. I googled this problem and it turns out it has something to do with my HP printer. I ended the HP task and the installer was gone too.

On a windows xp system, the windows installer dialog box "preparing to install" keeps occuring for no reason. It is annoying and slowing everything down. It sometimes goes away when I left click, sometimes not. What can I do?

I should also mention that I tried using System Restore also, but after it "appeared" it would work, Vista finally told me that there was an error and no changes were made to my system. So, can't use System Restore. When I try to uninstall any program Vista shows message "The System Administrator has set policies to prevent this installation." I'M THE ADMINISTRATOR!!!!

The Security Center Forum refered me to the XP Forum after clearing a infection.

During the infection and/or clearing process, I now receive 3-4 Windows Installer windows with virtualy every program I invoke.
These Windows Installer windows are up for only for a few seconds. No progam name inside the box just Windows Installer on blue title bar and inside it says "Installing..."

Happens with virtually every program start but most notable with IE7 and Outlook. Never noticed it poping up with Outlook Express.

All Microsoft updates installed.
All security sotwae up to date.

A:[SOLVED] Constant Windows Installer windows popping up

I've seen this problem in other programs like PowerPoint and other Microsoft Office suite components. The last time it got really bad, I had to uninstall the programs that were invoking the Installer and reinstall them, so that all the .dll files and .ini files were in the right place again.
I'm sure someone else has a better suggestion...

Hello:
Every time my system does a startup, Windows Installer opens up and attempts to install Microsoft Money Express. This is not a program I have ever used to my knowledge. The install fails so the installer continues to attempt the install. The only way I can stop the process is to control/alt/delete and end the task. Ths isn't a disaster--but its annoying. Anyone know a quick fix??

Thanks, Dave1846

Run MSCONFIG and select the Startup tab and uncheck any reference to Microsoft Money.

It appears as though you have a few active threads. It's wise to announce that each log is for a different computer, or you may be passed over, as some may think you've double posted.

We need to remove the offending AV program. Use this program to remove the AV program. Be careful using the utility. Only remove the offending program. After you remove the program restart and re-install the AV software.

Hi..
I installed Nero 7 Ultra Edition Months ago but this never happened before:
Everytime I open my laptop, Windows Installer will show up and says Installing Nero 7 Ultra Edition and then it will ask for permission then it will fail. And then from time to time, it will pop again. It so annoying.

This happened since I cleaned my registry.
Any idea what's wrong and what should I do? THANKS!

(OS: Vista Home Premium [I know this site is mostly for Windows 7, but still know you can help], I used both PC Tools Registry Mechanic and Advance System Care Ultimate when I clean my registry.)

A:Windows Installer Keeps Popping

If you know this site then you should also know that we strongly advise against using any so-called registry cleaners or optimizers - except for CCleaner - as these will ruin your install.

Nero is also known as buggy crapware for years.

If I were you I would revert a System Restore point before the OS was likely ruined by the registry junkware.

i tried to uninstall Microsoft Money but now i keep getting the windows installer trying to reinstall or a message to put in the money cd which i do not have.how do i get rid of this pesty situation?
 

A:windows installer keeps popping up!

Try this.
Select Start/Run and type in msconfig and press enter.
Check the startup-options. Somewhere in there you are likely to find the install or setup for that prog. Disable it by marking the appropriate line, save it and exit.
On your next (re)boot it should be gone.

Im not qualified to help you with the hijack file but i will say this much when something is removed in a registry it can cause all sorts of problems like corrupted or damaged programs or rendering a computer completely useless. thats why we dont advise anyone to use registry cleaners or mess with the registry unless you truly are knowledgable to know what you are doing.

After installing a repair installation of WIN XP HE because my laptop kept rebooting itself, Windows Installer now pops up when I click on any new site, document, e-mail, etc. and remains visible for 60 - 90 seconds. I can browse and use the laptop as before, but have to wait for Windows Installer to disappear before I can do anything.

How do I get rid of this? Do I have maybe have a virus?

I have used Norton AV Corporate Ed., UniBlue SpyEraser, and Registry Booster.

After installing beta version of MS Office 2007, Windows Installer pops up when I click on any new site, even e-mail, and remains visible for 60 - 90 seconds. Used Reg Cure, Reg Cleaner, Anti-Spy, Anti-virus, etc. and nothing has helped. I can browse and use the pc as before, but have to wait for Windows Installer to disappear before I can do anything. Sixty seconds multiplied by 30 or 100 clicks - or whatever - equals a lot of time wasted by waiting.....Many thanks for any help.

Hello rogers901, Welcome to TSF!

Please try this workaround (you will need your Windows? XP SP2 CD).

(In the event that you do not have a Windows? XP CD with SP2, you will need to 'borrow' one from a friend or colleague, as the manufacturer's "Recovery Discs" will not work in this instance.)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go Start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow ?please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows? core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully).

Please post back with the result, or if there are any further queries/concerns.

Kind Regards,

I've searched the threads and tried what others have tried without success, so started a new thread. Please re-direct if necessary. Some time ago I tried to get access to a 32gb stick that came back as "write protected" (without success) and in the process attempted to download some drivers for it from a "search for drivers" prompt. Since then Windows installer starts up every time I turn on my computer saying "the software you are installing for this hardware -Generic volume- has not passed windows logo testing" with an option to continue or stop installation. If I stop or continue, a dropbox appears saying the software couldn't be installed, click finish to close.
I'm using XP with SP3, 2 HDD's, 2gb ram on an Asus mb.

A:[SOLVED] Windows installer runs at startup

You do not need any drivers for USB devices.

Hi,

I keep getting a windows installer popup window whenever I open ANY program. It says that “The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-Rom or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the disk and click OK. There is nothing listed in “Use Source”. I can’t tie it to anything I have done recently.

I have Windows XP SP2

Can anyone help?

Thank you,

A:Windows Installer Window Keeps Popping Up

Hi grandmagail

Do you have Microsoft Office installed?

If so, insert the Office disk and direct the Windows Installer to the disk, for the source.
If it is not the source, you should see a message to that effect.

Let us know what happens.

Windows Installer box says "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. . .enter another path to a folder containing the installation package then it will pop up again saying hen Installed all my windows updates, restarted my computer about 5 times to no avail.

A:Windows Standalone Installer Popping out

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

Did you install or try to install any new programs lately?

Does the installer give any clues as to what it is trying to install?

Did you try to revert to a system restore point prior to this issue?

I've had some problems with my XP SP2 system lately. I uninstalled some programs in order to solve some issues. Now, when the pc boots up, I get a windows installer dialog popping up, saying "preparing to install"...it eventually just goes away. I have no idea what it is trying to install as it never gets that far. No other problems seem to exist.....any ideas out there?

Thanks in advance...

I am having trouble with this little window popping up.
It says windows installer.
I hit cancel and it comes right back and I hit cancel like two more times and then it lets me do a couple things and then it pops up again.
Our computer was getting slower and slower so I figured I would go thru the remove programs and clean some of the stuff out that we do not ever use.
I am thinking I must of removed something I should'nt have.
Any one have any tips on repairing the windows installer problem.

Thanks for any help.Doug

I need help, everytime I open a folder, with video files, the Windows Installer pops up for a split second, but it does it for each Video file, so if it's a folder with 10 videos, then the windows installer will pop up 10 times, its quite annoying and slows down the system at times

I have tried reinstalling the Windows Installer, and Unregistering, and Re-registering, also tried the Windows Installer cleanup utility, and I also turned off, thumbnail previews, that worked, but the installer, still pops up when I execute a Video File, I've Upgraded to SP3, and then back to SP2, I ran SFC, tried reinstalling Video codecs as well, and nothing really seems to work.

I really don't feel like reinstalling Windows, so any help would be great!

Hey everyone,

Recently I've bought a Sony Vaio and I have uinstalled two aplications that I would never use, they are Sound Forge Audio Studio 10.0 and ACID Music Studio 8.0 and since then I'm having problems with my notebook. It is a Windows 7 64 bits.

The problem is that a Windows Installer window keeps popping up and it suddenly exit without me even knowing what it is doing or installing.

It is driving me crazy, since I did not make a backup so I could go back to an older date and fix it.

I have already ran CCleaner and Front Line Registry Editor and it didn't fix it.

Could anyone PLEASE help me.

Hi,

I was on the computer and then all of a sudden windows installer was trying to install the sonic cineplayer decoder pack. The weird thing is, I didn't even open anything sonic related. I keep pressing cancel when it pops up. It does this about every minute. Is that the sign of a virus? Any help would be appreciated!

A:Vaio Analysis manager / Windows Installer window keeps popping up

Hello zolboo and a warm welcome to the Forum
I found this on the Sony website. If you follow the instructions it should solve your problem




Quote:
This is the Vaio Personalisation Manager which keeps track of your favorite music, programs etc. As far as I can work out it is designed to make personalised recommendations of music or other things you may be interested in when using Vaio Media Gallery. Rather like Amazon's Personal Recommendations.
If you don't want this service then just disable it. Go to VAIO Analysis Manager and you will find an option something like ' Preference Learning' - just uncheck it and reboot.

Hey all - I'm having a problem on this old work computer: Windows Installer is constantly popping up and disappearing! At times it's every 3-4 seconds and stealing the focus, and the popups almost immediately disappear. It seems to mostly pop up during work from within Microsoft Office and less so during work in Google Chrome but I'm not positive about that.

The popups previously attempted to install Roxio Media Manager. They would pop up randomly and try to install for 10 seconds or so then freeze, and cancelling the installation took another 2-3 minutes. However, I've since tried a registry clean using iolo's suite of tools (no noticeable improvements) and I've tried removing all of Roxio's installation packages using the Windows Installer Repair Utility - which brings me to where I am now. It would be great if someone could help!

Hello:

I have an annoying problem: each time windows (XP Home SP2, with latest updates to it and IE6) starts up, I have to wait a few minutes while the Windows Installer runs several times. Nothing happens and, after a few minutes, Windows is OK.

For the life of me, I can't figure this out. I know that I have occasionally seen questions about this issue in the forum, but I can't find any topic that fits my current situation.

I have run Hijack This and, as far as I can tell, nothing is untoward.

Any help would be very welcome,

whenever i turn my computer on, windows installer starts saying that it's going to install my hp psc1210 printer even though it's already installed and on. But then the message box goes away but it's still really annoying. I don't know if this is a windows installer problem or a printer problem.

A:windows installer at startup

It's probably just the exe. file left on your startup registry file and can be deleted. That should correct your problem.

I know I have windows installer installed, as Flashplayer and adobe installed it. Is it harmful, my brother is raising a lot of heck about it. I read the other old forum logs for windows installer and it does not see to be a problem. He also said that he has a program from windows called Trusted Installer. Checked back forum logs, nothing on trusted installer. I ran a search of my computer with no results. He said it stopped him from downloading SAS. He did a clean install and now it downloads and he cannot find no trusted installer on it. Is there such a thing as a trusted installer? Its only supposed to be in vista as he says. Curious about it as I cannot find nothing on my computer for trusted installer, windows installer yes, other NO.

which was solved by running ComboFix. However, now every time I log in, Windows Installer tries to install drivers for my old Wingman joystick, and asks for a disk which I threw away ages ago, along with the joystick itself. How do I stop it from doing so?

For the last 3 weeks or so, everytime I boot up, the Windows Installer screen opens telling me it is trying to install a program that is already installed,(usually driver for HP 4110 printer drivers). If I don't cancel it immediately, eventually an error screen appears telling me the file I'm seeking is not available and to insert the installation CD. I've tried re-installing the drivers by inserting the CD, but then an error message appears saying the drivers are already installed. This is getting frustrating?
Any suggestions? I'm running Windows 2000 Pro.

Hi all.

Running XP Media Centre Edition, SP2.

I get a Windows Installer dialog pop up 2-3 times during startup, "Preparing to install ..." (or something similar, it's too quick to read TBH).

I uninstalled .Net Framework 3 after reading that CardSpace was something to do with it, because I was also getting periodic CardSpace errors (the "Send/don't send report to MS" variety) so I guessed the two things might be related. But apparently not; the Windows Installer issue persists.

So, anyone know how I can identify what's causing the Windows Installer pop-up? It's an annoyance rather than a problem, but quite an annoying one all the same -- the comp ain't exactly super-fast to boot as it is.

TIA,
bomb

I had a similar problem a while back and, at least on my system, two actions corrected it.

1. Ran chkdsk.

2. In command prompt, unregistered and reregistered msiexec.

msiexec /unregister

msiexec /regserver

You may not have the same problem I was having so it may not work for you. What the heck, may be worth a shot.

Well hello everyone.. I'm a new member and signed up because of this problem..
Here it is:
At startup, Windows Installer pops up and it tries to install something into the computer. then, a security message pops up saying "An unidentified program wants access to your computer". The program is by "Unidentified Publisher". Everytime it asks for permission, I deny it access for fear of virus/malware.
The problem is:
I DON'T KNOW what it is, where it comes from or who published it. It pops up at EVERY startup. It's annoying but at the same time scary. What if it is a crucial update or something?? What if it's a virus??

Waiting for a solution. Still denying access.

Thx

It may help remove that installer from starting up however you would have to know the name of the installer you're looking for. When you install the CleanUp Utility it will show you a large list of installers and you'd want choose the one that's starting up with Windows.

I have recently changed my setting under msconfig ( System Configuration Utility). I set it to normal start up. And after i rebooted, the windows installer dialog box always pops up every time i startup the computer. I press cancel and it will close but then after a few seconds, it will appear again. It appears around 3-4 times. I changed the settings to selective start up again and unchecked some of the services from the start up tab but i still have the problem. How do i resolve this?
 

A:Windows installer pops up at startup

Normal Startup vs Selective Startup:
If you use the msconfig utility to access the Startup menu and make changes on that menu, you will need to remain in Selective Startup. The nag message that comes up after the reboot following these changes, suggest that Selective Startup is only a diagnostic mode and you should return to Normal Mode.

This is not entirely accurate. Remaining in Selective Startup is the only way to keep the changes. Virtually every program installed on a PC comes with it on the Startup menu and very few programs are actually needed to start at boot. They are the antivirus program, firewall, touchpad for laptop and network processes if on network. The rest can be called up when needed.

Services vs Processes:
The msconfig utility Startup menu deals with processes. Services is an entirely different category. Services can also be customized for settings of Automatic, Manual or Disabled, with care taken to check the Dependency tab of each Service. Here is help with Services:
http://www.ss64.com/ntsyntax/services.html
http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

When you have finished customizing the Startup menu using msconfig, click on Apply> OK> Reboot> Close the nag message after checking 'don't show this message again'.

IF you have checked a process to now start at boot and are now getting the installer message, it is possible that the program for that process has not been correctly or fully installed. If that is the case, a reinstall of that program is recommended.

Something is trying to install on boot, and failing.

MS publishes a tool called "Windows Installer Clean-up Utility" or similar, and I'm pretty sure it's purpose is to fix problems like this.

Check Event Viewer, it should say what it is that is trying to install on boot.

What's the last thing you tried to install ?

If it's in Add/Remove Programs, uninstall it, then reinstall after a reboot.

Could it be something to do with RegCure, which I downloaded recently, I don't recall this happening before I ran that program?

A:Windows Installer Dialog Box During Startup

Hi .

Adobe puts a few unwanted items on systems...I recall the update/download manager was an irritant for me.

It's possible that installing your program resulted in a startup item being placed on your system...and some part of Adobe install failed (for whatever reason). I see a reference to a "viewer" and that's essentially what Adobe Reader is.

Have you checked the Adobe forums?

Actually...if I used Adobe Reader, I would just uninstall it and reinstall it and see what happens. If that fails, I would try the Adobe forums.

Howdy.

I've run into a bit of a problem with a friend's computer. Every time I try to bring up AVG 2011 (free), or bring up Internet Explorer that I know uses an AVG add in, a pop-up box keeps coming up that's trying to install. The box won't do anything...just sits there. I've traced it back to AVG and this happens every time I open up an instance of AVG. The process (task manager) can be traced back to "avgui.exe"

I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, but with no success. I'm away from the computer, so I can't run a Hijack report.

Any suggestions?

Robert

I guess I'm missing something ovbvious here but it sure feels weird - every time I boot the pc the Sun Java runtime environment installer keeps popping up! Yup, I already have it installed in my system.. There is nothing in Autostart that does this, as far as I can see. Have used StarOffice but uninstalled it, no difference!

Any ideas about how to get rid of the thing?!

Thanks

So everytime my aunt starts up Aol(I know i tell her not to use aol but she just cant get rid of it, lol) a box pops up saying "Windows needs your permission to continue, if you started this action, cotinue" When i press continue it ask if i want to install this software "Adobe flash player" which is already installed and working correctly, even if i press yes, it will install then next time we start aol it will do the same thing. Does not happen anywhere else(I.E. or firefox) just in aol. I tried a couple things like registry cleaners, malwarebytes and hijackthis so far with no luck. Any way to fix this? Also tried uninstalling flash and reinstalling manually with no luck.

After a security patch was installed by Windows, the Windows Installer runs every startup, never completes...and is almost impossible to kill or cancel. I tried system restore but it won't accept the 1 restore point before the patch, so no help there. I don't see anything obvious in Task Manager to track down, but may be easily missing something in the long list of processes.

Suggestions most appreciated how to resolve this.

A:Windows Installer runs every startup and never completes

I encountered a similar issue when I first got Windows 8. A good first step would be to use Microsoft's 'FixIt' utility for Windows Update if you haven't already. What ended up working for me was a refresh of the system; not a complete restore.

A:Windows Installer error and installation or startup

mani1

This Windows Installer error is quite common. It is usually trying to install something/program already on your system such as Office etc.

In your case it is trying to install "Scan". What on earth is that? Do you know what it is?

The way to fix the error is to run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility
Read the instructions here before using it. There is a download link too
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=290301

When you run this you wll be presented with a list of everything installed by Windows Installer, and the solution is to remove ONLY the entry for whatever is in the error message.

Have a look at all the entries and see if you can associate any of them with this "Scan". Do not remove anything else as that application will not then work, so do not remove anything you are not sure about.

You could also look for an entry which does not make sense such as random letters or numbers and try removing that.

It is all caused by a corrupted install/uninstall by Windows Installer. Suspect the last thing you installed/uninstalled

A:Cccommon; Windows Installer; Slow Startup And Frequent Crashes

Hello Cosmo313 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I don't see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.ccCommon is part of Symantec's security products. It sounds like either the package is damaged or there is an update that is trying to install. You will either need to let it install, or, if it is damaged and cannot install, uninstall whatever Symantec products are currently installed and then reinstall them fresh or go to a different security application. If you need help with uninstalling/reinstalling the AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methods forum can assist with that.Cheers.OT

Try booting into Safe Mode again and do a START---ALL PROGRAMS---ACCESSORIES---System Tools---System Restore. Pick a date prior to the VPN client installs and restore via a reboot to that state hopefully. We use Shrewsoft's VPN Client at work and it is Windows 7 compliant.

I've been trying to sort out a problem that's developed recently whereby, during Windows Startup I get some instances of the Windows Installer dialog box being displayed.

The dialog box is labeled 'Windows Installer' in the box it says 'Preparing to Install' and there is a 'Cancel' button in the lower right of the box. This appears to be a standard Installer dialog except that no program is mentioned as the program being installed. They last only a few seconds and then disappear.

I have run all spy/mal/virus scans with various programs and my system appears to be clean.

It has been suggested to me to use the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, but, I don't know what program to cleanup after.

Any suggestions on where to proceed next?

Thanks, _corsair

I recently downloaded a user mod for a Tom Clancy game from a reputable web site and checked for viruses, it was clean. After install every time explorer opens the calculator pops up aswell I have erased mod, restarted and repair installed windows xp. is there a setting that can cause this to happen or do I have to backup and format/install windows?
