    Windows Installer has been popping up each and every time I click on a link somewhere, or an icon on my desk-top, and anywhere I open a new program.
    A bit of back ground: I accidently erased adobe acorbat 7 professional. I did a system restore which returned the software, but now I get this
    window installer pop up every time I open something.
    I tried running the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility but it didn't help.
    Also ran spybot and adware with no results.
    Found that some people used Hijack this to find a bad key however being a NEWBIE I'm chicken to erase anything.
    The Event veiwer also shows adobe acorbat 7 professional Install Failed along with PDFmakerforlE failed during request for component.
    Any help would be appreciated.
