My OS is using XP Professional with SP 2
When ever I right click my mouse or use copy or delete functions, windows installer is alway activated.
How can I solve this problem?

Thank you

Try to remove Windows Installer 3.1 in Add/Remove programs in Control panel. Check what happens now.

Run windows update and a new installer will be downloaded. Install it. Check again.

I am not sure I understood what you wrote. Did the problem disappear after you uninstalled windows installer? If it did disappear, did you download and install it again? If yes, what happened? Please try to explain.

Go to Control Panel > System > hardware > device manager. Click the (+) near Mice and Other pointing devices. Right Click the driver that show up and click Uninstall. Repeat the process if there is more then one driver. Reboot and windows install the drivers again.
