Hope this helps,
I am using XP Home on my Gateway 700s PC. 80GB Harddrive, 512 RAM/DVDR/CDRW. We use McAfee Firewall and Virus Scan, SpyDoctor and have installed the Microsoft Anti-spyware Beta. For about the last week, each time I open a new window, the Windows Installer pops up for about 15 seconds (just long enough to drive everyone crazy). I've learned to ignore it, but its causing havoc when my husband tries to play a game. Any thoughts?
