    Running winxp pro and when I try to open my software , only some of them I get a preparing to install window. When I cancel a few times it loads as normal.

    Why would this happen?
    Tried to delete a few software files and did a registry cleanup with system mechanic. then after reinstalling them same thing happens.

    heeeeeeelllllppppp.....


    Thanks for readin

    is this happening with a specific application, or all of them?
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    usually this thing happens with MS Office in a fresh install.
    i would recommend that you let the install go to the end i.e. let it complete installing all the files it want to rather than clicking on cancel and it will not happen next time you open the app.
