Windows installer tries to install a microsoft image software that I don't have, everytime I start up. How do I get this off my startup menu. I cancel the application install at every start up to no avail. I have even tried downloading the software just to get it out of this installation sequence were it keeps trying to find the application cd. Please help!

At start up the first window is the window installer telling me it is installing 'photogallery'. Then it changes to a window that says "Please wait while window configures "photogallery". Next a window opens saying " error 1706 no valid source could be found for product Photogallery the windows installer cannot continue." Then yet another window pops up saying" The feature you are trying ro use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available please input the Photogallery disk. When I cancel out of this window it tries to install the software again with the same repeat of successive windows. This process will be repeated three times than it will no longer attempt to install and I can proceed to use the computer.
