    Every time I start my PC the 'windows installer' runs. There is no explanation why or what programme. it dosent seem 2 b a problem but it worries my that I dont know whats being installed.

    I get the windows installer box and the blue line shoots up...

    any one help. I have run spyware and adware progs and an antivirus..

    Many thanks

    Have you recently updated windows with SP2 ? If so there are numerous issues with windows installer related to it. I would uninstall SP2 and see how it is after that.
