I need serious help!

  1. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this. If not, I apologize in advance.
    I have a pretty strange problem. Whenever I try to install a game, instead of it's installer coming up, a SoundMAX installer pops up instead. I thought uninstalling SoundMAX would fix the problem, but whenever I try to uninstall it, an error comes up and says:

    Component: Windows Files Staccato
    File Group:
    File:
    Error: The parameter is incorrect

    So, if anyone could tell me either how to install games without the SoundMAX installer come up or how to fix the uninstaller, I'd be grateful.

    You can download the Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 from the M$ website and run that, it will install itselfs and then you should be okay. Assuming you are running Windows.
