im running windows xp service pack 2. a few weeks ago i had a power cut and my computer turned itself off. ever since then i have lost my microsoft office system restore and every time i try to open a program e.g. windows live messenger or internet explorer, a box saying windows installer flashes on screen and in the box says preparing to install. it doesnt install anything but when it has finished it opens the program this happens every time i open or start a program. how can i get it all back and get the windows installer box to stop appearing? thanks coombsy
