    Another problem with XP home PC.

    PC boots to login screen OK, but after login, windows installer always pops
    up and runs.

    Have disabled the service, rebooted and set service to manual stert with no
    change.
    Am having problems installing software, because of errors with windows
    installer service so tried to re-install windows installer, but I then get an
    error about the Cryptographic service not running and not being able to check
    inf file integrity.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Already downloaded that , but when the installer pops up it does not tell me
    what it is trying yo install. So not sure what to remove in clean up utility.

    Just noticed it doesnot pop up in safe-mode, so might try and disable
    startup progs first and see what happens.

    Thanks
