MSI is the Windows installer.

Why it is trying to run at startup is a bit puzzling.

Start, Run, type

msconfig

and click OK. Look for any unusual entries on the Startup tab.

This error message is common when trying to install Norton products.

I am using BT Yahoo broadband online protection , they have eTrust Antivirus and Zone Alarm firewall , you say the installer is to do with Norton , I was trying thier trial NIS for a week or so till I downloaded the Online protection from BT ... I uninstalled Norton and scrubbed it through Registry First Aid , its only since then that this MSI installer has shown up !!!!!

what can be done , any suggestions or comments much appreciated !!!
