Windows Installer keep popping up

Specs: Windows XP
Hello all!

Windows Installer keeps popping up whenever
I right-click on anything or run any software. It
jut says "preparing to install" but doesn't
specify what. After hanging in there for few
seconds, it just disappears.

I did extensive search online and tried
everything that I could find. What I tried:
1. Cleaned up every entry within MS Installer
CleanUp Utility
2. Uninstalled all software that was shown in
MS MS Installer CleanUp Utility
3. Reinstalled Windows Installer
4. Tried msiexec/unreg with msiexec/regserver
5. Stopped all software in windows start-up.
6. Tried stopping installer in services

Nothing helps :(

Any recommendations?

One of the past updates was installed but the mega data tags became corrupted and is not showing that the installation took place. As such it keeps trying to re-install the program then recognizes that you already have the latest update and shuts itself down.

Usually removing and reinstalling the last updates will allow the data to be read correctly!

Change Is Good
