Office Xp keeps reinstalling

I've now got another little annoyance.

After the installation of my router, when I startup the pc, and log on, the Office XP installer appears, and reinstalls Office XP. It doesn't ask for a cd, but within about 30 secs, its installed....again.

Any ideas,

Thanks,

Steve

Is there anything to do with Office in msconfig, SB23?

The only thing that I don't recognise is,

Setup
D:\Setup.exe HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVer...

I would untick that entry.

Which drive is your D: drive? Is it a CD Drive, a hard drive, or a partition? Either way it looks odd having a setup.exe in msconfig. Trace it back, see what it belongs to.

D:Drive is the dvd rom drive, my next question is why is that in the startup list. I didn't do it, honest.

Another question is, how do I trace it back to see what it belongs to?

If it's your DVDROM drive then I'm surprised you don't geta an error on startup, unless you have the Office CD in the drive. Untick that entry see what happens.

I had this for a while.

Not much help to you I know, but it eventually disappeared as mysteriously as it came!

(What's the betting it'll now come back tomorrow!)

I've gone into msconfig and changed the startup list, so far ok, but I'll check for updates now.
