I have an IBM T30 laptop running win 2000 pro SP3. Every time I open IE the windows installer program pops up for just a split second about 3 or 4 times. It also does it when I open some programs but not all programs. How do I get rid of this? What other info do I need to post to get help? Thanks

Hello,

Do your Event Viewer logs (Start --> Run --> compmgmt.msc) hint of what might be triggering the installer to activate? Is it consistant on what programs the installer opens on?

I am wondering if you are having the .cat file problem where the permissions are all messed up.

Let us know,
Christian

The application log is full of messaes: There are 8-10 msinstaller messages.
Here is what I found in the event logs listed as a warning for msinstaller:

Also in this log are hundreds of these perflib messages:

What does this tell me?
