I have (2) "installer" Pop Ups - Titled "Windows Installer" or "Solution Center" , Both say preparing to install and have a Cancel Button in right lower corner of Title Panel.
There is NO File Extension on either so I cannot get a "handle" on them with a document search. They have gotten so bad the Cancel button does not Clear them out. (Just had the Windows Installer pop up hit while writing this). I have a buddy (92 yrs old) that was able to click on Start and then enter "Programs" in the window that appears just below his Start Button. He was using Windows Vista. I am using Windows XP SP3 on an HP Pavillion ze2401xt Notebook PC. and I DO NOT have that "Window" on the bottom of my Start Menu. I have gone from McAfee to Norton Anti Virus 2010 to WebRoot and back to a so-called improved McAfee/Cox Security Suite (installed 1 week ago). Could you please give me some help with this problem? I had written on this a year and 1/2 ago when I intially signed up Bill the Greek
