    :mad: I have Windows XP. I’ll be doing something on the computer (Doesn’t matter if I’m on the internet or not) and I’ll get this annoying program called WordPerfect Office 12 that keeps trying to install itself. I’ll click cancel like 20 times and then it comes up with a message (after the 20th time it has tried to install and I keep clicking cancel, and it's one right after another not every few minutes) that says, “The feature that you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the`Word Perfect Office 12` disk and click O.K. to continue (gives you the option to cancel or O.K). Then at the bottom it says Use Source: [WordPerfect Office 12] or it gives you the option to browse.I click cancel and the next window says:"error 1706. No valid source could be found for source WordPerfect Office 12. The windows installer cannot continue. I click O.K and the process starts all over again. I go to the add/remove programs and try to remove it and it says it has to be installed before I can uninstall it yet it shows up in my add/delete programs menu list like it's already there. Any idea on how to get rid of it, is it another virus or spy wear, or is it something I NEED to install (i don't have a wordperfect office 12 disk). I doesn’t state anywhere that it is an update. Please help, it’s really annoying and freaking me out (more like Pi**ing me off). Thanks for your help.

    I am having this exact same problem. The only way I can close it is ctrl alt delete and closing it through the applications window. But every single time I start up my laptop it pops back up again. Is there anything I can do to stop this? Thank you.
