    I got some games on my computer and when i go to play them it attempts to install a program called photogallery on its own. i can only close this by end task meens and when it closes it closes game with it. i can not view what it wants cause it wont let me open it or my game so i must end task it. It cant be a problem associated with the game itslef and my computer settings as i have ran the game on this computer before. SO How do i stop this PHOTO GALLERY

    Welcome to TSG! (y)

    Sounds like you could have a virus or bug of some kind..
    It may have attached itself to certain .exe's to launch it..

    Do you have an up to date antivirus?.. And anti spyware program?

    Hmm, seems there are other reasons too..
    Here is one; http://www.thetechguide.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=19296

    Something about HP printers, or photo CD's that install only part of a program, so it keeps asking.
