I have a campaq notebook that runs windows xp, when I start up it does fine until I click into the user name. Once it gets to my screen the windows installer automatically pops up and tells me it is preparing to install photogallery which to the best of my knowledge I don't have. It atempts to install until a screen pops up that says something about needing a cd to install. If you cancel out it tries it atleast 2 more times. It is really agrivating me as it takes almost ten minutes to get through all of this before I can do anything else. If someone could help I would be greatful.

Oh yeah I already tried to unistall the program and it isn't there.

Click Start/Run . Type msconfig and click OK . When msconfig opens click the Startup tab and uncheck any entries that appear to be for the photo gallery application . Apply and restart your PC . When you do restart you'll probably get a message stating that you have used the system configuration utility blah blah . Check the box for Do Not Show This Message Again (or something like that !) . Hopefully that will stop the problem ...

Do you have an HP printer? If you do and still have the software install CD for it, insert the CD in the drive and then reboot the computer. Hopefully the Windows installer will find photogallery.msi the next time you start the computer and quit annoying you. You can later unistall Photogallery using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.
