My windows installer is not working

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hi folks,

Windows Installer keeps trying to load a program (Hp Camera software) which I don't have any more. No Disc, and the files cannot be found on my hard drive.( a .MSI file).

I went to add/remove programs and get the same message, every time I open a program or go online or if the computer is just sitting.  Windows installer pops-up, asking for the source disc or file. How can I stop this?

Hi, have you tried to search for that particular HP programs on the Internet? If you still remember the name, just Google it. If you find any, download it. Now when the Windows Installer pops up again, just give it the new downloaded program.

If you can't find it on the Internet, then follow these steps:
Go to Control Panel
Select Administrative Tools
Select Services
Find any services that you think is related to your HP software. Look on each of those services' description and see if one of them mentions "HP" or "Hewlett Packard".
If you find one, right click on it, select Properties.
On the Startup Type, change from "Automatic" to "Disable"
Close all windows. Go to Start > type msconfig
On General tab, choose "Selective Startup", and only check the "load startup items"
Go to Services tab, uncheck all Microsoft Corporation services. Also, find any HP related service, if you found any, uncheck it too.
Click OK. Restart your system.
When it starts, it will give you a notice that, you are running in msconfig mode. Check the box in the window and select OK.
Now go to Control Panel and remove the HP software.
Go to msconfig again and select normal startup.

Hope it fixes it:)
