    I keep getting a windows installer popup window whenever I open ANY program. It says that “The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-Rom or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the disk and click OK. There is nothing listed in “Use Source”. I can’t tie it to anything I have done recently.

    I have Windows XP SP2

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you,

    Hi grandmagail

    Do you have Microsoft Office installed?

    If so, insert the Office disk and direct the Windows Installer to the disk, for the source.
    If it is not the source, you should see a message to that effect.

    Let us know what happens.
