Windows Installer

By ronriemar ·
Everytime I right click on a file or attempt to delete a file, a windows installer windows opens and attempt to install contribute.mis, a file which can't be found. How do I remove this file from the install list?

Contribute CS3

by shhite In reply to Windows Installer

It looks like your computer at one time had Contribute CS3 installed. on it. Look in add and remvoe programs and see if it is still there. If it is remove it. If not go to this site and install the trial version then unistall it. (This might require a restart).
