Hi all - this is my first post here so I think i should start by greeting you all! I am being tormented by instances of msiexec.exe running both on startup and whenever any media (CD or DVD) is inserted. It just runs through the installation preparation bit, and then stops, although the process hangs around in the task manager for a while. Nothing actually tries to install, and it does not appear to have any adverse affect on the system...but I want to get rid of it!! Any ideas would be appreciated - thanks!
