Hi there,
I have been working with Stamper19 removing all of my malware and now I am completely cleaned! However, in the interrim, I have developed a Windows Installer problem. On start-up and sometimes when I try to run a program, the Windows installer pops up and tries to install JASC Paint Shop Pro Studio, which I don't use. I went to ADD/REMOVE programs and the screen tells me to stand by while it populates and then just sits there not populating. I booted in SAFE mode and ADD/REMOVE screen will populate, but I am unable to remove anything. I receive an error message telling me that the windows installer cannot be accessed.
Can this be fixed?
Thanks to you all! :whistling:

:whistling: Followed the link, followed the instructions with no change. Windows installer still tries to install Jasc Paint studio album5 on reboot.
ADD/REMOVE program screen still doesn't populate.
