    THANKS so much instantninja! I did the last suggestion you gave me and it worked like a dream so I thought my problem was gone because Microsoft Works is no more...but the windows installer is still flashing on the screen attempting to install,only God knows what and mind you it never gets installed ofcourse, now I am back to square 1 because I really thought that was the cause of that Windows Installer problem...so any MORE suggestions? It would be appreciated greatly!!

    Maybe we can find the entry triggering it and see what we can do about it with the help of HijackThis.


    1- Please click HERE to download HijackThis.

    2- Run the program.

    3- Click on the Main Menu button if not already there.

    4- Select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

    5- Copy and paste the scan log from Notepad into your next reply. Do not attach it.

    6- Do not "Fix" anything unless advised to do so.
