1. System restore to 1 week back.
2. Download Windows Installer Cleanup utility. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
Success not guaranteed, however.
I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with VISTA OS. For the last 3 or 4 days I have been getting many very annoying OS screens/messages popping up saying such things as: "Windows Installer", Preparing to install - - - -.", TrayApp, "Please wait while Windows Configures TrayApp - - - - - /Cancel/, STATUS, "An installation package for the Product Status cannot be found. Try the installation using a valid copy of the installation package 'status.msi'."
These and other messages began appearing approximately 3 or 4 days ago and I have no idea what, if anything, I may have changed in the OS to cause this. Does anyone know how I can go about restoring my VISTA OS to its prior settings, hopefully precluding these annoying messages appearing on my monitor?
