How do i stop my windows intaller trying to install symantec antivirus msi file

Step 1:
Stop Windows Installer From Popping Up b> The older a computer gets, the more junk it accumulates. A great number of computers out there don't start up without a thousand things popping up demanding your attention. Windows Installer is one of the more notorious pop-up offenders for Microsoft users. Stopping these pop-ups can prove challenging, however, there is a way.

On your computer's desktop, click on the "Start" tab, typically located on the bottom left of the screen (in Vista it may be the Windows symbol rather than the word "Start"). Now locate and click the program titled "Run." Vista users can locate this program by typing "run" in the search box at the bottom of the "Start" menu. Once "Run" is open, type "MSCONFIG" into the empty box and click "OK." This will open the System Configuration Utility. With the System Configuration Utility open, select the tab labeled "Services." Scroll down the list of services (it may be beneficial to click the "service" column to sort the services alphabetically) until you find the "Windows Installer" program. Now click the check box beside the Windows Installer name and click the "Disable" button at the bottom of the System Configuration. Congratulations, you have stopped "Windows Installer" from popping up!

Diablo-hellfire install problem

okay I "might" have found the solution, so mount the hellfire.iso like you do in usual, create a folder "HELLFIRE" in your desktop, put the files in your virtual drive into HELLFIRE folder, click the hellfire.exe found in HELLFIRE folder, it should work. (atleast it did for me)

Windows 7 or Vista
Right click installer and run as administrator.
Also you could try :
select "properties" at the bottom of the sub menu that pops up when you Right clicked
and from the window that comes up select the "compatibility" tab try XP Compatibility first.

I am trying to install a pc game called: Jurassic park operation genesis but when i put the disk in it does not automatically come up with the installation screen, please help.

If nothing pops up within 30 seconds, then go to My Computer. Search for an icon with your game's name in the file, or, if that's not there, click on an icon that says "removable" or "local disc".
  • 3If still nothing pops up, find an icon that says "run program". Don't click on anything that says "text" on it.
  • 4Press install once your program has popped up.

    Finepix z20fd

    I have Windows Vista also, but my installation screen came up. If nothing pops up when you put it in, I would suggest opening "My Computer" and right clicking the icon with FinePix and starting it that way. Or, maybe you could check the Fujifilm site and see if you can download the software off the internet.

    My Kodak Picture CD will not auto load

    If your computer is operating with WINDOWS 95, WINDOWS 98, or WINDOWS NT 4.0 Systems, this CD contains software that automatically launches when you insert the CD. Getting Started:
    Insert your Picture CD disc and wait for the software to load (it could take as long as 5 minutes, depending on your machine configuration, CD drive speed, and the number of images on the Picture CD).
    Note: This loading process installs some Picture CD program files onto your hard drive. The KODAK Picture CD installer walks you through the steps. The final step may be to restart your computer. If so, be sure to restart to complete the installation.
    After your computer has rebooted:
    1. Eject the Picture CD and re-insert it into the CD drive.
      The program should launch automatically.
    2. Click the magazine cover to turn to the Contents Page.
    3. Follow the links to read and do more with your digital photos.
    If nothing happens after waiting for the Auto Play, you may need to manually start the Auto Play program. (Auto Play is a program that starts up the CD installation process the first time you use the CD.)
    To manually start Auto Play:
    1. Right-click the My Computer icon.
    2. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
    3. Click the Device Manager tab.
    4. Click the CD-ROM drive icon; click the "+" to view the CD-ROM drive information.
    5. Double-click the CD-ROM driver icon.
    6. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
    7. Click Settings.
    8. Check Auto insert notification and click OK.
    Note: This enables all CDs to automatically run any Auto Play software.
