Windows Installer at Startup

  1. At Startup after I have recently run an XP Pro "repair" from the Windows CD I now get Windows Installer firstly indicating "Installing" (It is shown in Add/Remove Programmes) and then it is looking for "Photo Gallery" to install but says it can't find it because it is on another CD.
    [a] I do not know what CD it is looking for
    I do not want to install any Photo Gallery (I'm a little short of HD space).
    [c] All I want to do is to stop the Windows Installer box appearing at
    Startup, it never did in the past!

    Windows Installer

    Problem Solved!
    Downloaded and installed "Windows Installer Cleanup Programme" a Zipped file titled = msicuu2.exe. Ran the program, located "Photo Gallery" and deleted it, I think must be an HP "mush" file that came with my HP PSC2355 software.
    No more "Windows Installer" pop-up at bootup! All of mymy photo's are still where they were and accessable.
