Hi Folks. Every time I open a browser, or Windows Live Email, Windows Installer tries to open. I must repeatedly keep clicking cancel 3 or more times until the installer closes. Anyone know why it is doing this? And how can I stop it?

First thing I would try is running the chkdsk /r command.

 

Ignore the C: put into the command in the example following...it's not necessary.

 

Chkdsk From Command Prompt, Win 7 - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/496613/contextmenu-is-causing-explorerexe-to-crash/?p=3067880

Thank you, folks for offering help. The issue was that Windows Installer was trying to install an old version of XP office. I had installed a newer Microsoft Office program. I uninstalled the old program, and not it is ok. Thank you for your suggestions.
