Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Every time i open a new program, windows installer pops up, but does not install anything. it just stays there.


Answers :

Hi there, most of the time when this happens, its because of a apparent corrupt file that has been discovered by the windows security system. when you initiate a program and, the correct file base isn't found immediately after this initiation, the windows platform will try to find it by launching the windows installer program. this installer will search the entire HDD for what it needs to start the desired program you want. if the programs vital missing DLL's aren't found, the installer will simply stall out and remain on the screen. the best way to fix this is to reinstall the specific program that is causing the installer to activate it self. if its popping up on many programs, just reinstall them. i would also run a virus scan as well just to be safe. some viruses are known the stealth themselves by taking over your most used programs.
