      Assuming that you have scanned for viruses, trojans and malware (you did do that, right?), then either some part of Windows or an application, such as Office, is calling the Windows Installer looking for an application.

      What, if any, errors are appearing in the Event Logs?

      If nothing is listed there and you can’t find a virus or malware, assume a damaged program is causing this issue.

      Does the installer fire on any program?

      If so, do an in-place repair of Windows.

      Does it only do it on Microsoft applications?

      Run a repair of the application.

      Hi

      As well as the suggestions above, you should also make sure that Windows itself is healthy. Run a registry checker and also run the system file checker (SFC.EXE), which will run when you next reboot. SFC will replace any missing or corrupt system files.

      Good luck
