Trouble with Spyware Blaster/Guard

Everytime I start either SpywareBlaster or SpywareGuard the Windows Installer pops up and wants to install a feature from the Microsoft Office 2000 Disk 2.
The problem is, that this is not my computer and I don't have this cd, because I use Microsoft Works on mine.
The programs both seem to work fine, but it gets anoying, because it takes a long time. Especially when I want to put SpywareGuard in the Startup.

Is there any way to disable this or to get the missing files of the internet?

Thanks in advance.

Try this:

Download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility: http://download.micr...1bd/msicuu2.exe

Run Windows Installer Clean Up, select the application which pops up with the Windows Installer (in your case that MS Office component, and click Remove.

NOTE: This application just removes items from the Windows Installer database, it doesn't touch MS Office/Word itself at all!

Here's an article you want to read before proceeding: Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility
