For some reason there is a windows installer window that pops up ike every 30 seconds, and its just a windows installer window that says preparing to install but as soon as it pops up on my screen it goes away and then opens another one, is there anyway I can get rid of this???

This only happens if Windows is trying to install something and this window will not tell you what is trying to be installed. Is there a program that you have tried to install that did not complete?

You can check the event viewer for an error that will have to do with a failed install by typing eventvwr.msc in the run box.

yes it is.Do you break an installing program?When you get the window press the ctrl+alt+del and see the running programs and then you will see the pop up window's installer place,close the process.

I still have the problem, but the popup only popups maybe once every 5-10 minutes, and it popups so fast that if I'm not looking straight at my comp. screen then I won't notice it

I would install that but I can't because it says Error 1500. Another installation is in progress. You must complete that installation before continuing this one

Turn off Auto update "but notify me of any new Updates". This option allows you to select which updates to load.

Go into registry
Search for a folder called "BillingPayment". Its a separate listing and has a reference to an antivirus website inside.
Delete the folder.

Otherwise, in Explorer, search for a program called "Edonkey.exe"
Delete it or use your Anti-Virus program to quarantine it

with attitude like that you can stick it where the sun don't shine .
or take it to a computer repair shop that employs people to fix problem for people who don't know how to do it themselves !

Can you read what is on the popup? Any hints or snippets as to what it is trying to install?

Since you are on the internet and are responding to our mails, you some navigation ability. Maybe, if you use an anti-virus program it will stop.

Otherwise, turn off the firewall and anti-virus program and let it install then run the anti-virus program. The firewall icon and anti-virus program icon is (could be in the system tray (bottom-right corner) right-clcik to exit or disable.

I just copied and pasted this advert from this site because I couldn't think of anything else. It was in between the posts.
