Windows XP Installer Pops up when booting

  1. When I boot up my Windows XP computer, a Windows Installer pop-up appears saying "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-Rom or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the "Sonic-Update disk and click OK." I also get others for iTunes.
    This also happens whenever I try to install a downloaded program, so I can't install anything.
    Help would be appreciated!

    I'm using Zone alarm firewall, Avast anti virus, AdAware anti-spyware, and Trend Mirco Anti-spyware.
    No, the computer doesn't crash.

    Get and try the Microsoft Fix installed.

    Windows Install Cleanup it's called.

    It's not a Window Update item.
