WinInstaller wants to install bogus programs

Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium, 2.33g/1012mb
During startup or restart I get an Installer message box indicating trying to install 'Destination Component', then wants the disk to continue. How do I stop this?
Yesterday it was trying to install SFR, Kodak software I don't have anymore, then PCI Simple Communications Controller Driver, which I believe is a modem from years prior to 2004 and 5 years before this computers manufacture date. Do not have a virus. I've already been through the Services isolation process and don't see where there's any program trying to run in the background.

Are you running something like Microsoft Security essentials?

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

No, the Norton Suite from my ISP, Comcast, since earlier this year without incident. I just can't seem to be able to isolate what it is when it appears as the same acronym after a few starts and then changes it's identity with another acronym or full name after the next startup or restart. Certainly acts like a trained virus.
