Windows Installer

Post by Memphis Jack » Sun Aug 23, 2009 1:00 pm

Occasionally, when I open Windows XP a box will appear on the desktop saying Windows Installer is installing; or words to that effect. Sometimes it is a quick flash and disappears, other times it will stay on the screen for several minutes and no other commands will respond until it's finished.

My first thought was that it is installing Windows updates automatically, but I checked my settings for updates and it is still set to download automatically, but install when I tell it to do so. It's probably obvious, but I can't figure out what it's doing. Any ideas?
