Hi,

When I turn my laptop on and after the desktop appears, Windows installer runs automatically to install (Microsoft onenote!)..and it takes minutes and then I get an error message the the installation has failed!.
Now, everytime I have to cancel the installer several times to get to do whatever I want to do on the computer..
How can I stop the installer from running automatically???
I appreciate your help
Thanks

If it runs automatically when your laptop boots, I suggest you go into MSConfig (START-->RUN and type in 'msconfig') and check to see if there are any programs that would run the onenote installation wizard. Also check and see if there is anything in Add/Remove Programs that refers to onenote.

Kieth, No, I haven't got a trial version of onenote, i guess it comes with the laptop that has a sticker that says "Bundled with MS OneNote 2003" ??

Fenor, I found nothing that has to do with onenote..I found under services (windows installer)..I don't think i have to untick this one..??
