Pop up weindow

I am using Vista Home Premium. As soon as Windows opens, I have recently begun getting a series of windows stating :-----
Please wait while Windows configures the HPProductAssistant.
Deleting that window, brings up the next :---
The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disc that is not available.Insert the HPProduct disc and click O.K.
Deleting that window, brings up another :----
An installation package for the product HPProductAssistant cannot be found. Try the installation again, using a valid copy of the installation package ‘hpproductassistant.msi’

Deleting that, the others come up again in the same sequence, and eventually disappear after deleting each as they appear again..

Can you advise how I may stop this sequence appearing each day ?

    Your reply would be applicable to Windows XP or earlier, but unfortunately not for Vista. Can you advise further ?

  • pixieanne Sep 13, 2008

    Thank you 'aocartas' for your suggestion. However, when I opened the startup tab, the HP Product Assistant is not listed. The only HP items listed are --- hpsysdrv Application / HP Software Update / HP Health Check Scheduler..

    Have you any further suggestion ?

Here's the fix, run it and remove the hpproductassistant entry. It works, I struggled with this a long time.

Copy entire link, paste into browser, install and run. again, just remove the hpproductassistant entry.

Hi Ma`am,

You can stop this message from appearing by deleting it in the start-up configuration. How to do this is go to start then run, on type msconfig. A menu will appear then go to start up tab then uncheck the the HP Product Assistant. After the configuration was done the computer will ask to restart your computer. Try if the popup windows will still appear.

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

Hi i recently had a BSOD pop up on me when my Windows Vista from my Acer AST690-UP925A was starting up. theres also a status code for 0xc000000f with file: Windowssystem32configsystem from the windows boot...

I would recommend that you do a repair install off of you Windows Vista CD because it sounds like one of the Windows system files got corrupted.

If this does not fix the problem then you are looking at a reinstall of Windows.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Nonfunctioning screensaver for Windows Vista Desktop


Click on the Settings on your screen saver.

Also make sure you have a time listed in the "wait" column. It may be set too high "in Minutes"

My suggestion is try one of the preloaded screen savers such as Windows Logo and set time "wait" to one minute to see if the screen saver you are using is at fault.

Cannot install CARD GAMES for Windows


It's probably an issue with Vista, right click on the icon, go to properties, run as administrator, and run in compatability mode for XP. If this doesn't fix the problem, try contacting the software manufacturer.

Vista RAM usage ?


The minimum recommended ram for Vista is 1 GB, generally accepted practical minimum is 2 GB. A 1 GB system will be kinda laggy. Maximum RAM for 32 bit Vista is 4 GB.

Vista Home Premium is roughly equivalent to Windows XP Media Center Edition (Has Media Center, cann't be put on a DOMAIN type network)

Vista Business is roughly equivalent to Windows XP Professional (Can Join a Domain, Doesn't have Media Center)

Vista Ultimate has all available freatures of Vista, you can do any windows function with Ultimate

Scanjet 5400c won't scan in Vista Home Premium


Unfortunately, your scanner is not compatible with Windows Vista and there are no drivers available to make it compatible. I found the following message on the HP website when I searched for Vista drivers for your product:

We are sorry to inform you that there will be no Windows Vista support available for your HP product. Therefore your product will not work with Windows Vista. If you are using the Windows Vista operating system on your computer, please consider upgrading to a newer HP product that is supported on Windows Vista. HP has numerous products on the market that support Windows Vista. If you are in the US, see http://www.hp.com/united-states/tradein/home_flash.html . If you are outside the US, click the How to buy link at the top of the page.
