Re: Windows Installer Runs Every Time I Start Program

Yes I am logged in as an admin...but I don't exactly "allow" the windows
installer to run. It just runs.

As soon as Excel pops open...and before a blank workbook is opened, a box
briefly displays "Windows Installer" "Preparing to Install" (I had to do a
print screen to actually see this) then a second dialogue
appears...."Installing Components for microsoft excel" "Installing:
Microsoft Excel Feature"

Re: Windows Installer Runs Every Time I Start Program

OK this continues to be a bothersome issue. My newly rebuilt pc has SATA II
drives and a dual core processor....but instead of a blazing fast open since
this "installation" insists on running each and every time that I open Excel
it takes forever for the program to open when it should take only seconds.
