windows installer

By grogues ·
Hello everyone,

Everytime I right click Local Disk (c:) or Compact Disk (d:) in My Computer or left click Compact Disk (d) with a data disk in it a windows installer window appears for 5 minutes or so until it eventually finishes and i can continue(or not sometimes.whislt burning a data cd etc.)

Any thoughts would be welcome indeed.

This problem just recently occurred on my 2000 laptop which i've had for about a year.

regards.

When the installer opens, what does it install??
Sounds like you may have a partially installed program (Explorer??) that needs to be run from the HD.

Are you running NTFS or FAT32. This happened with my W2K OS until I reverted back to Fat32 from NTFS. (I only used NTFS for video dubbing).

Second, clean out the junk (if any) defrag (you've probably tried that tho).
