What’s the method to handle windows installer issue?

Asked By 1040 points N/A Posted on -


I am sheikhuuu and I have windows XP installed on my computer. The version of my windows is service pack two from 2006. I have got an issue with my windows installer that it keeps popping-up simultaneously and doesn’t perform any further action. I mean to say, my window installer appears automatically and does not move forward to install anything.

The problem’s length is as much that I even cannot install any type of program now. And if I want to install any software the window installer pop-up for a while with an irritating tone/noise and then disappears. I would like to share that I have tried many things to get out of this irritating position but nothing is working for me right now.

To get myself out of this, I first of all updated my windows installer version but no changing occurred in the behavior of my window’s installer. After that, I performed a full maintenance wizard on my PC with the help of a computer optimization app but that didn’t work too. I have checked my pc for any malware or other threads but it’s not affected by these kinds of items. I guess, I have tried each and every reasonable thing to get out of this. But don’t know why I am not been successful in it?

Now my all hopes are with you guys here that you may help me to fix this problem.

I am confused to handle this and want to learn what’s the method to handle windows installer issue?

I’ll be extremely happy to get a clue about this from one of you here (techyv), which I think is very much possible to be done very soon because as far as I have observed; this site is one of the best site to get yourself fix your issue with the help of others online.

So, I am extremely hopeful and waiting for urgent help!

Thanks in advance.
