Thanks for reading this post, Every time I boot the computer the Windows Installer will try to install, I get the following message, " Please wait while windows configures TrayApp " but there is no cd or dvd in any of the drives, it takes forever clicking the x box to stop it, any idea's ?

Did you solve your problem? I have a similar one. Every time I open either an Internet Explorer window or a Windows Explorer window, Windows Installer tries to install Earthlink Accelerator. This started happening after I uninstalled Earthlink. But I couldn't load any page content when I connected to the internet with my new ISP, so I used System Restore to undo the uninstall. I don't know what to do now.

I'm just guessing here, but could this be a problem with .NET v1.1? If so, try upgrading to .NET v2 and see if this fixes it.

Thank you very much. I downloaded and installed the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility from your link and removed all the Earthlink programs from the list and voila! Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer windows open like they're supposed to.

I don't know what the .NET program is, but I do have version 1.1.

Here's my reasoning for suggesting .NET v2:

I have read references to a "glitch" in .NET v1.1 that would cause similar behavior. Also, I've experienced problems with the .NET v1.1 myself. When I installed the .NET v2 software my problems were fixed.

You can get the v2 in Windows Update by clicking on the Optional Updates.

I have not upgraded to NET version 2 and have had absolutely no problems. It is my understanding that this is needed only if you are developing software or if a program you want to run has been created using it. Please read this post (#7) with Hitsquad's explanation of what the NET framework is. You might want to read the entire thread as well. There's lots of info. there in the various links.

My suggestion to upgrade to .NET v2 was due to my personal experience with it and it's success at solving similar (but not identical) problems. I am familiar with Hitsquad's explanation and have read the entire post.

The ambiguity of the English 'you' strikes again. I know you know what the net framework does and is usama. After all, you were one of the respondents in that thread :flowers: . My previous wasn't directed toward you but rather to those who, like me a few months ago, have no clue or have limited information about what the net framework is. I always feel more information is better :trumpet: as this leads to better understanding and decisions.
