Sony Vaio - Windows Installer popping up Bug

Q: Sony Vaio - Windows Installer popping up Bug

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.

Preferred Solution: Sony Vaio - Windows Installer popping up Bug

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.)

I use Sony Vaio.. the problem is that a Vaio Analysis manager / Windows Installer window keeps popping up and it suddenly exit without me even knowing what it is doing or installing.

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.

Hi Folks, This is my first post. so go easy on me;-)

I switched on my PC after 1 year of no use(apple imac distracted me for a while).
The message "operating system not found" appears when it boots up. I put in the Sony Recovery disk, bit it could not read it. As Sony didn't provide a spare copy of XP, how do I get back up and running? Do I have to change the motherboard battery? any advice much appreciated.

I Hope you Christmas is Merry and peaceful.

Cheers,
Dryfly
 

A:Sony Vaio Desktop PCV-RX305 Windows XP now missing, no disks supplied by Sony

Call Sony Tech Support if you are the registered owner or buyer. They will provide a disk set for a small fee ($27) for six years after purchase, or until they run out.
Your only other choice is to buy the disk online at some place like ebay, or buy Windows Home (still available for $82) or Windows XP Professional for $135.
The motherboard battery should not be bad, but if it is, you can get a replacement (CR2032) at Wal-Mart ofr $3.67 or on eBay for $2.58.
The recovery disk may be good, and it is your optical drive that has gone bad.

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.

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.

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.

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,

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Hi All,

I have got this Sony Vaio E11 (SONY VAIO SVE1112M1EW 11.6" Laptop - White - Free Delivery | Currys) .... do you think it would run Windows 8 OK? And is it worth upgrading?

I can do it for free as part of the package I got when I bought this laptop, just looking for some advice.

Many thanks,
Amnesia

Please post your computer specifications.

Lets test some hardware:

Find the manufacturer of your hard drive and run their Hard Drive Diagnostics Utility.
Also test the RAM by running memtest

I successfully installed the 32 bit version of Windows 7 Ultimate on a Sony Vaio PCV-W30, my only problem is that the amount of screen space the computer is using is very small, and leads me to believe that i need to find the right video drivers for it. This Computer has an SIS 651 graphics card, an Intel Pentium 4 Processor, and it's running 512mb Ram. Does anyone have a solution??

If needed i can take a picture to show just what i'm talking about.

A:I got a SONY VAIO Windows 7 and I need help.

Hi Wii_zil,

And welcome to the wonderful world of Windows 7! ;)

All programs listed under "Programs and features" are OK to uninstall, as they are not a part of the Windows operating system. Just leave any Antivirus/Firewalls be, as they're there for a reason.

But all the programs you listed above, are definately OK to remove.

As for desktop gadgets and such, it's all about personal preference. Don't be afraid to play around with the settings, check out the different themes and such. Just right-click the Desktop and choose Personalize, as you will find most of the settings there.

Otherwise, let us know what specifically you want to configure.
Generally though, a new installed system should be all fine and dandy.

The only thing I remove when I buy a new preinstalled laptop, is all the trial applications, for instance the ones you've listed in your post. Other than that, you should be just fine.

when you bought the computer did u make a recovery cd cause all vaio's have that option if you did i reccomend you do a system restore by pressing f2 or 12 i think it will recover your computer to an earlier date and then you insert the recovery disk and then you are all done--
-it sends you back to the day that you made the system disk

Do you have a backup from before the problem started that we can restore from?

Do you have a win 7 dvd that we can do a repair install with?

does it do the same thing when booted in safe mode (F8)?

Hello Giansky26 and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you tried copying just one file at a time? Does that work? Are you trying to copy to Windows Media Player or something else? Is the external HDD being recognized? Perhaps if you show a screenshot of your expanded Disk Management window it will give a clue about how the Vaio sees the external HDD.

It's a couple of years old, I turned it on the other day and it says upon loading "setup is preparing your computer for first use" it then doesn't ask me to log in it just goes straight to welcome. When it loads a black screen appears with an error message which reads "windows could not complete the installation to install windows to this computer please restart the installation" it then just restarts and does the exact same thing again.

Thanks for reading any advice will be appreciated.

I'm wondering about your statement 'goes straight to a black screen'. No POST? Is it possible that it no longer recognizes your hard drive? (Possibly drive has failed, possibly cables came loose, possibly BIOS got changed)

If not, try booting from your Windows CD & copy NTLDR back to the hard drive (probably root of C: drive).

A:Windows 7 Sony Vaio IE Issues

Hi turtle0423,

What do you mean saying "After my computer recovered from a virus"? Did you work with a Malware Response Team member to remove all the malware from your infected PC? I have seen IE messed with like this a year or so ago and it was malware related. The malware set all pages to white. Being on a white background the pages disappeared. Malwarebytes is one of many tools used to check for and remove malware. One tool does not find and fix all infections. If you haven't already done so, my suggestion is to move this to the Am I infected, What Do I Do forum and let them have a go at it. You might still have something...

Go to BIOS and set your CD/DVD to boot first.

Or you can try F2 when you restart and the first screen comes up, it should list the F-key to use on that screen somewhere for the boot menu, Sony should be F2.

This is a no-no.

What you need to do is a clean install. Back-up your data externally and boot from your windows 7 CD. Select Custom Install, format the drive and install.

Hopefully Win 7 will install drivers for your hardware and we can help you from there on even more.

Did you wipe out the recovery partition if any?
Boot from a Windows XP CD. Borrow one if you have to. Just have your 25 digit product key handy. Choose to reformat the drive then install Windows.
You can download the driver installation files from Sony's site using another computer.

Hello Everyone,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-Z590 that has 2 x 64 GB SSD hard disks that are arranged in a RAID 0 config. When installing Windows 7, the files are copied and the computer reboots, but when it reaches 85% on the Completing Installation screen, the laptop will power off. I have checked to make sure that the power adapter is plugged into a working power source, checked the battery, and even opened up the laptop to make sure that the cooling fan is working, but it still shuts off at that point. I have also disabled the RAID and tried running the Windows 7 install off of a USB drive, but it still shuts down at the same point. Has anyone run into this problem with this model Sony, and if so, how did you resolve it? Thanks!

A:Windows 7 Install on a Sony Vaio

If you have not done the following you should, update drivers and check for BIOS updates, if you are doing a Vista to Windows 7 upgrade shut down any virus and malware protection then retry running the installation, if this is a clean installation skip the part about AV/Malware.

Sony Vaio VGC-LS LS25E
Installed Windows 7 for a friend. Two bangs in the device manager - Mass Storage Controller & Multimedia Controller

I went to Sony's support site and tried to find some compatible drivers;
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=VGCLS25E&LOC=3#/downloadTab

I downloaded and installed:
Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility
Memory Card Reader/Writer Driver Registry Patch
SigmaTel® Audio Device Driver

And the problem persists.

I don't see any other useful drivers on the site, just random updates. If anyone would be able to help out with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Did you run the upgrade advisor prior to installing windows 7? Its possible there will not be any drivers for these devices you mentioned.

I installed windows 7 on my sony VGN-SZ770N laptop; the motion eye webcam stopped working. I tried to download the dirvers for the camera from the SONY website, but it says it is for VISTA only. And when I ran the EXE file in vista compatibility mode, it still did not fix the problem. The system does not recognize my built-in webcam, nor does skype. Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi ,

I have a Sony Vaio S Series VPCSA35GG laptop that was working fine until it shutdown itself and since then it is unable to boot. It just displays a blinking cursor and does not boot or does not display any error messages.

I have also tried vaio care rescue option to copy my data and it also fails with mshta.exe error.

I have tried resetting BIOS to default values but did not help. I also don't have windows 7 disks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
 

A:Sony Vaio Windows 7 does not boot

Is the hard drive detected by the BIOS or the "vaio care rescue option"?

If so run the diagnostics on it, if the BIOS includes any.

I have a sony vaio sve14a35cxh that I'm trying to install back to windows 8 as it was originally pre-installed with.

I have the boot mode set to legacy

now when it asks where I want to install windows, theres a message saying

"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

There is no enable/disable disk controller in my BIOS menu at all. I tried to convert the entire drive to GPT and that didn't work.

I have no IDEA what I'm doing. Do I convert my entire drive to MBR or GPT and after installing the OS, do I use UEFI instead of LEGACY?

I am installing windows 8 on a USB drive.

A:Sony Vaio windows 8 install help

Hi,
First thing i'd do is to check for BIOS updates or reseting it.
If the problem assists go to System\Administration\Disk Utility (Availble in windows 7 only) then go to the buttom and click "edit partition" then click "BOOTABLE" and it should be fixed.
Hope that helps.

Without your system specs, its hard to say which is best, but the fact that it comes with the starter edition tells me that this is a bare bones system. Without a cd/dvd drive, you are pretty much stuck with a flash drive installation... Do you have the ISO for Windows 7 ???

Hi everyone I have a client a hotel who is redesigning Vaio a Windows Sony XP LS Putting on their front desk lobby area to be sleeker and nicer looking for the guests One of the revamped design aspects will be the computers that are stationed at the front desk The hotel executives saw and liked the Sony Vaio LS series and wanted to use those so we ordered one for testing When it got here we found that the computer Putting Windows XP on a Sony Vaio LS came with Windows Vista Business preinstalled which would have been ideal except for the fact that the hotel runs a very specific and critical piece of software which we have heard straight from the developers absolutely positively will not run on Vista no way no how So we still like the idea of using the Vaios for the front desk but they will need to be reformatted with Windows XP instead of Vista I already attempted this a short while ago but after a fresh install of Windows XP absolutely nothing worked right out of the box there was no sound no Ethernet no wireless incorrect video drivers etc I went to another computer and downloaded all of Sony s drivers from their web site but as soon as I tried to install them it told me the drivers were only compatible with Windows Vista This leaves me in a rather dire situation The Vaio cannot be returned so we really have to get it working somehow Is there any way to get just the base drivers working on Windows XP The machine has a bunch of extra stuff we don t need like the camera and TV tuner for instance -- really all we need is Ethernet Video acceleration sound drivers and wireless would all be really good to have but I suppose not absolutely critically essential Does anyone have any ideas how I can get this computer working normally with Windows XP Thanks in advance nbsp

Hello People.

After some searches and test's with the windows 7 beta & RC on my vgn-fe890n, i finally installed all the features on it (including the FN functions and S1,S2).

Here are the step's I've taken (obviously after you installed the windows7):

1.Install NVidia driver (ver 195.39) from here.
2.Install Sony Shared Libraries from here.
3.Install Sony Utilities DLL from here.
4.Uninstall Vaio LAN Settings & another one similar with this (can't remember perfectly).
5.Install Firmware Extension Parser from here.
6.Install Memory Card / Touchpad / Camera with drivers from here.

And that's all. It's working perfect for me.

PS: before you install a driver, go to Properties and under COMPATIBILITY hit Vista SP2 and under PRIVILEGE activate As an Administrator
PS2: RESTART after each update!!!

Cheers,
Andrei

Hi Guys
i have SONY VAIO VPCEB4C5E,
After Having Liquid Spilled on my Screen, it was not working for few hours,
then i took to local repair and they did it worked, so everything is working fine. However i doubt that, when i press Power Button, it tooks about 7-8 seconds to start loading SONY LOGO and then WINDOWS 7 comes up, as i remember, Before it got spilled, and prev time, on pressing power button, it was loading LOGO immediately max 1-1.5 sec, i'm afraid.

This is happening at shutdown as well, after pressing shutdown, firstly a Black screen appear for a few seconds and then my vaio is shutting down., I guess there is something changed in Bios, maybe by Local repairers.

Please be advised, Thanks, Levan.

A:SONY VAIO Slows At Start Up, Before SONY Logo Loads.

If I'm understanding correctly, your Vaio is taking about 7-8 seconds longer to start. At shutdown you're getting a black screen and it's taking a few seconds longer than what you're used to. But is everything else in between (opening programs, searching on the internet, etc) working OK?

If it is, my first reaction is to say don't worry about it. I have a VPCEB47GM and it takes about 10 seconds for the Sony logo to appear and about 50 seconds total to be able to use Windows 7. On shutdown I usually get a black screen for about 5 seconds but the rest of the shutdown process takes about 30 seconds to finish.

Do you know what your BIOS settings were before you took the machine into the repair shop? If you do, you could compare them to how the BIOS is set now. But if you don't know how the BIOS was originally configured, I wouldn't be changing anything.

I'd like to reinstall Windows 98 on a Sony Vaio N505VE, but it requires a Sony CD drive. When I purchased the laptop 4 years ago, it came with a Backpack CD-Rom Drive. A few months ago, I researched online and I seem to recall a website that gave instructions on how to reinstall Win98 without the Sony drive, but I can't find it anymore. Does anyone know how I can do this?

Thanks,

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!
