A number of months ago I installed LiveDrive which is a cloud backup programme. This included an updated .NET framework. The installation crashed half way but when rebooted it has successfully installed and works fine. Ever since though when i reboot my computer it tried to complete the installation and an error message come up saying there is already an instance of setup running, even though its already installed and working and running on start up anyway - screen shot attached.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the framework and livedrive but no change. everything works fine, except recently i tried to do a system restore but it fails as it thinks its awaiting a restart. I have tried to repair by reinstalling windows without formating the drive but again it gets stuck and says unable to complete as the system file is awaiting reboot.
Does anyone have any suggestions how i can get out of this loop and stop windows attempting to complete the installation on every boot up? Any help is appreciated as i would rather not have to start completely new windows install and at the moment i am in danger of any minor issue without being able to restore could be terrible!
