    Do you mean you are getting installer messages when running apps without admin privileges? If that's it log in as admin, run app, then return to user account. Installer message should have gone.

    If it ain't that then who knows lol

    Don't know what else you mean or even why you'd need to stop it??

    As Skazzy said...more info would be nice.;)

    Perhaps you should just let it install... then it wont come back?

    Disabling Windows Installer would be a BAD idea. You need to let the programs finish installing or uninstall them.

    Does it do this in every profile or just one?

    Does it do this in the Administrator profile (Not a profile that is an administrator, but the actual Administrator profile)

    And... just out of curiosity, what OS? 2000? XP?
