From your post it isn't clear what is triggering this message.
I just started getting an error message saying "External Installer has stopped working". What is it talking about, and how do I fix it? I am running MS Vista [SP2], on a Gateway GM5684E.
Don't know what started it, got up one morning and there it was. There had been Auto Downloads the night before.
Last night I tried to down load and install IE8. Went through the entire setup from MS, clicked the big "E", and got a message that the DEP won't let it run ??????? So I had to take it out, via System Restore.
At first i installed the Spyware doctor ver 220.127.116.117 (not ticking enable automatically smart update option)and then i installed the upgrade version of it --> Spyware Doctor 2010 (i tick the automatically smart update option). Then it pop up the message like "External installer has stopped working". Any idea how to fix this ?
