Whenever I open a folder like My Computer, Recycle Bin, My Documents etc, Windows Visio 2003 tries to install. I don't have Visio installed on my Machine now and I never did in the past. When it finishes loading it asks to put in the CD. If I click cancel, the install prompt will come back about 2 or 3 more times. The install prompt will always come back anytime I open any of those folders. It even opens when I try to run some programs. When I try to open the task manager, the Visio install tries to run. And it gives me an error that task manager is corrupt. It had never happened before, it happened all of the sudden when I just got done transferring files from my laptop to my Desktop PC over the network for the first time. I don't see how sharing something over the network can do this, but it only started happening right after the files were transferred. Any ideas?

I also uploaded a video on YouTube, it's a little fuzzy because I used a webcam capture. But you'll be able to see how it happens.

Yeah, I made a mistake. I did have visio. I don't have it anymore because I removed it and the problem was fixed. I didn't think I had it, but I never used it anyway. I'm not sure what was going on but all I did was remove the program and it stopped coming.
