    Every time I reboot my computer Windows Installer is attempting to instal Corel Photo Album 6 asking for a disk. I don't have a disk because it was a trial version preinstalled on my new computer and I deleted it I have to click 6 times on this annoying window to close it. Please Help before I break this machine. Thanks:mad:

    If you go into Add/Remove programs, is it there? If so remove it from there.
    Also, go to start, run, type "msconfig" without the quotes, go to startup tab and see if it's listed in startup. If so, uncheck it.
    Good luck!

    Did you check to see if it's in your startup? If it is and you uncheck it, restart your computer and the message should go away.
    Also you can click on start, all programs, startup...if it's there, delete it. Reboot.
    Good luck!

    If you go to start, all programs, is it listed there? If so is it a folder? If so open the folder...possibly there is an uninstaller in that folder?

    Its not there. It was not actually fully installed. I believe that I aborted the installation after realising that it was just a trial version.

    Apparently this is a problem many people have had. I came across the following directions on removing it....and many people said it worked! Good Luck!

    1. Point Internet Explorer to the following location. This will load the Download page of our FTP Server. If you receive an error message when loading this page, you’ll need to enable "FTP folder view". In Internet Explorer Use Tools | Options, Click the Advanced tab and mark the "Enable Folder View for FTP sites". ftp://ftp.corel.com/pub/PaintShopPro/X



    2. Locate the file ZapPS.exe



    3. Left-click and drag the file from the Download page window to your Computer Desktop (you can also copy/paste by right-clicking on the file and choosing copy and then right click on your desired destination and choosing paste). This will transfer the file from our server to your computer.



    4. When done downloading the file, browse to the location of the saved file. Double left-click on the icon to start the utility .



    5. From the Product Drop-down menu, choose the version of Photo Album you’d like to uninstall.



    6. Under Actions, add a checkmark next to all 4 options - Uninstall, Run MSI Zap, Remove Registry Keys, Remove Installed Files. If you have customized albums by adding soundtracks, arranging the display order of images, or if you have assigned Keywords, Titles, or Descriptions to your images, this process will automatically back up your database file for you so that this information will be retained.



    7. Choose begin. The utility will begin to uninstall Photo Album. Then the utility will remove all other portions of the program. Note: The files you have created, edited or saved with Album will NOT be deleted, moved or changed.
