CA Installer popping up constantly after every log on

Q: CA Installer popping up constantly after every log on

One of the CA security center components keeps installing when I log on. This prevents me from uninstalling anything or installing anything new. Because it keeps installing (or is just installing), I can't even try to uninstall it because well, it's installing!

Help, please! Thanks!

Preferred Solution: CA Installer popping up constantly after every log on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I tried uninstalling Norton internet Security because it was creating all sorts of issues. I'm still wrestling with it but now windows installer keeps popping up with virtually everything I do. The setup window pops up and says "MSI must be launched through setup". When I click ok it pops back up 4-5 more times before giving up. I'm not real computer savy. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of it? Thanks

I don't know what may have started this, but kaspersky kept telling me that svchost.exe was performing a suspicious action trying to inject something into winlogon.exe. It asked me to allow/deny, I denied, and it kept repeating. Eventually I ran a scan and detected that "smarthook.dll" contained a trojan. I used kaspersky to remove it, and downloaded a clean copy of the .dll and put it in my system32 folder.

Now I am receiving the classic:

svchost.exe:
"The instruction at "0x7588bba5" referenced memory at "0xfede1500". The memory could not be "read".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program"

Only this pops up every 5 seconds about 6 times and then stops, and randomly will continue this pattern.

I have attached 2 logs, one is current <taken today> the other I just happen to log a few days ago for the hell of it (before I noticed any errors). I don't know if.. comparing will help I just want to provide all info I have.

~Thanks!

[edit]
**Additional: Just ran AVG Anti-Rootkit Beta and it detected system32/userinit.exe as a "Hidden Application"

extra info: sometimes when the svchost error pops up, my taskbar at the bottom changes to the old grey style and not the windows xp style.

Also: included a screenshot (edited for size).

System Info:
AMD Athlon 64 processor 3500+, 1 GB RAM
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

A:svchost constantly popping up

nobody responding, so I'm trying to help myself. A couple things I've noticed
1) in my list of services, there is a service named "Asctcgwto" set to disabled. This brings up nothing in google.
2) After turning on my computer, I type "at" in the console and it responds with "The service has not been started." I use the at command fairly often.
3) I type "net localgroup" and it tells me that the workstation service has not been started. So I start it.... I Don't know why it isn't already started, (it's set as "Automatic" but was stopped).

The problem is getting worse because from the moment I click login, it brings up multiple svchost.exe errors and takes an exceptionally longer amount of time to fully log in.

XP, Media edition, SP3. My Window Installer box keeps popping up -- not for too long, but long enough to be worrisome -- usually when I open desktop folders, or when I launch Internet Explorer (8). As with most people for whom this problem happens, I suspect it's searching for a program that I apparently uninstalled incompletely at some point. I have tried everything -- removing specific keys in the registry manually, running the Windows Install Cleanup utility (tho, I confess, I get nervous about removing some programs with that, b/c I worry they'll no longer be available to me); resetting the program through the cmd command; installing a new version of msiexec.exe, etc. etc.

Hi, this is a slightly long story, but one day my IE decided to stop working and wouldn't load any web pages. I ran my anti-virus software, Spypot S&D, Ad-aware, etc. and it found nothing. SO, I just started using Firefox and I un-installed IE. Then I reinstalled it and it works BUT then after doing that, my anti-virus software jacked up. I have the Symantec AntiVirus program and NOW every time I turn on the computer and it loads windows, the 'Windows Installer' pops up and then says it can't configure Symantec because it's missing some file. I have to Alt-Ctrl-Del and end program to get rid of this box, everytime I press cancel it just keeps trying. Anyway, even after I close that out, the Windows Installer box keeps popping up every five minutes annoyingly. Now I'm unable to install any other program, because when I try, it says "another installation is already in progress." This is also the case when I tried to uninstall the antivirus program. Any help would be GREATLY GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

Hello ayeika and welcome to BC I am shifting this topic from the HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum as you haven't posted any logs.Who advised you to run Combofix? ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert." It is NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.There are not a few posts I've seen in which someone used it and their computer became an expensive doorstop. You're lucky that yours hasn't.That said, what is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.?What security programs do you have installed?Orange Blossom

Hi..
I installed Nero 7 Ultra Edition Months ago but this never happened before:
Everytime I open my laptop, Windows Installer will show up and says Installing Nero 7 Ultra Edition and then it will ask for permission then it will fail. And then from time to time, it will pop again. It so annoying.

This happened since I cleaned my registry.
Any idea what's wrong and what should I do? THANKS!

(OS: Vista Home Premium [I know this site is mostly for Windows 7, but still know you can help], I used both PC Tools Registry Mechanic and Advance System Care Ultimate when I clean my registry.)

A:Windows Installer Keeps Popping

If you know this site then you should also know that we strongly advise against using any so-called registry cleaners or optimizers - except for CCleaner - as these will ruin your install.

Nero is also known as buggy crapware for years.

If I were you I would revert a System Restore point before the OS was likely ruined by the registry junkware.

I have a question, but first I would like to complain....

I have been developing with visual basic for over 10 years now. For the past few years I have been using VB 6.0. Recently I purchased and installed Visual Basic .NET . This is a drastic departure from their previous programming environments and syntax. It seams to me that Microsoft now thinks that all development should be web based and has brought forth .NET for that purpose. I happen to know that there are thousands of engineers out there that use vb for developing engineering solutions (HMI's, Utilities, Controllers, protocol converters, etc.) and could give a sh*t if they ever run on the web.

Thank you for indulging me....

Now my question... my install of .NET went without any problems, but recently whenever I open VB6, I get the .NET installer popping up stating that it needs to install some components. This is before I attempt to open an application that could be using a .NET component. If I hit the cancel button 3-4 times I can proceed. In an effort to satisfy this pig of a development environment, I succumbed and inserted the requested .NET CD only to wait for a half hour while the installer initially appeared to be doing something then appeared to just stop. So I clicked 'Cancel' the 3-4 obligitory times and proceeded to develop in the best development environment ever abandoned (VB6).

Any insight would be appreciated.

A:windows installer keeps popping up

Hello rogers901, Welcome to TSF!

Please try this workaround (you will need your Windows? XP SP2 CD).

(In the event that you do not have a Windows? XP CD with SP2, you will need to 'borrow' one from a friend or colleague, as the manufacturer's "Recovery Discs" will not work in this instance.)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go Start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow ?please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows? core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully).

Please post back with the result, or if there are any further queries/concerns.

Kind Regards,

Try this.
Select Start/Run and type in msconfig and press enter.
Check the startup-options. Somewhere in there you are likely to find the install or setup for that prog. Disable it by marking the appropriate line, save it and exit.
On your next (re)boot it should be gone.

Every few seconds auto play pops up and immediately vanishes again. It's very annoying, to the point where I can barley use my computer, (I posted this from another computer.) The drive responsible says recovery H, H is my USB but there is nothing plugged in there. The Auto play fixer isn't for Vista 64 bit. I don't want to simply stop auto play as I like it when it works properly. I don't seem to have a windows restore point either. I have done everything I can think of.

I recently had a problem with a constant popping sound and started a thread here for help: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...ml#entry1400691It helped me identify the source of the sound. It was suggested I post here to see if an infection is at the root of my problem.To sum up, I was hearing an almost constant bubble popping sound which ended up in fact being the Windows XP Balloon Tip Sound. After some trial and error with the advice given I found my registry had been changed to not show the balloons. Once I changed it back I began receiving the following balloon - "IP Protection Infection Detected" from Malwarebytes. Many IP's have shown up from various spots on the globe and it was suggested perhaps this forum could help me find if an infection on my PC is "calling out" to these IP's known to be associated with malware, etc.The people on the other forum were awesome and helped me get this far. If anyone can help from here it would be greatly appreciated!

I have Windows 10 and everything is running ok. Then, yesterday, I ran Windows Update and Update installed THREE updates....

KB3881449, KB3881488, KB3081452

It seems to be a NEW and BAD HABIT of Microsoft NOT to give us any details on what these updates do to our operating systems, what problems they solve, what features they provide or take away or what they modify. It would certainly be helpful in trying to diagnose a nasty problem that develops immediately, doesn't it? I don't like this new attitude at Microsoft of "we will run your computer and you will like it". Anyway, after updating and rebooting, I immediately started having a problem with the new Microsoft Edge Browser. It is now popping up on me without being asked to. This problem started immediately after I installed the updates and I DID NOTHING ELSE on my computer after rebooting.

There are a few things I want to say here...Microsoft DID THIS to my computer. I ran an anti-virus scan and malicious software scan using ESET SECURITY SUITE 8.0 both on my computer and an external ESET Anti-Virus Scan from ESET that sits off of my computer and nothing was found.

I also got ONE OTHER ERROR, I only saw it pop up one time and here it is, attached snapshot of the Error Message attached (it says)...

A:Edge Browser is Popping Up on Me Constantly

Edge opening constantly might be malware.

Here's a link to the Malwarebytes blog that discusses those un-closeable Tech-Support-Scam pages and sites:

PSA: Tech Support Scams Pop-Ups on the Rise | Malwarebytes Unpacked
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Edge is installed as the default Windows 10 browser. Here's how to make Internet Explorer the default browser instead.

I believe the icon for Edge is automatically installed on the Taskbar. The icon looks very similar to the Internet Explorer icon.

To pin the Internet Explorer icon to the Taskbar, click on the Start Button, click All Apps,
Scroll down and click on Windows Accessories. Right Click on Internet Explorer, click on Pin To Taskbar.
The Edge icon is a darker blue. The Internet Explorer icon is lighter blue with a gold diagonal arc across it.

Right click on the Edge icon and select Unpin From Taskbar, if you wish.

Now to make Internet Explorer the default browser:

Click on the Start Button, Settings, System, Default Apps, scroll down the Choose Default Apps list and Click on Web Browser - Edge, and choose Internet Explorer from the pop-up menu. This makes Internet Explorer the default browser.

So here is what's happening to me...

1. I've got this constant pop up thing happening that is saying contextual ads.
2. Under Uninstall or Change a program there is a program called Ron too1 addestination. If I click uninstall a box comes up asking for the verification code and in the center of the box it's got garbled letters, which I think they want you to use as the verification code.
3. I'm running on Windows Vista with several securities in place...MicroTrend, Windows Defender, AVG 8.0, Avira Antivirus, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SpywareBlaster, SUPERAntiSPyware and used Spybot to search and destroy. They don't seem to be finding this thing.

I reformatted by Dell Inspiron 1721 laptop a couple of months ago and everything's been working perfectly until a Windows SP2 update automatically installed itself last week - now Windows Media center opens up constantly (very distracting); I've removed it from services and from startup, but it continues to pop open.

Also, a funny looking file menu will sometimes pop up all by itself on the top left of the screen.

And windows or programs I have open may just close themselves out by themselves.

This has all been going on for a week and is becoming very annoying. I don't use Media Player, but understand it can't be deleted. Until I chose "Don't show me this message again" there was a message every time I booted up that said something like, "Your new hardware needs to be installed." I had not attached any new hardware.

Anyone have any ideas? I really don't want the hassle of reformatting again so soon.

Thanks,
SWOFKY

I have an HP computer with Vista, Comcast as the ISP, and McAfee (I think it was provided by Comcast).
A new problem has popped up just recently. Every few minutes, I am interrupted when the black and red McAfee flash-screen is flashed on top of whatever I am working on. That is followed by a tan-colored screen called “Comcast Security - - - powered by McAfee”. (This is the same screen that comes up if I click on the McAfee shortcut on the Desk Top.) That screen changes its contents once before it quits. The coming of these screens has nothing to do with my pushing keys. They come even if my hands are not near the keyboard and if I am not on line with Comcast.
These screens flash on for only a fraction of a second – not long enough to read what they say. But they disrupt my train of thought and, if I am typing, can cause errors in my writing. I checked my McAfee and security settings and they seemed correct. If you can suggest a way to stop this, I would appreciate it. The screens have flashed on about six times while I was writing this.

You might want to try a Clean Boot troubleshooting procedure to hopefully isolate an offending application. Run it for both Services and Startup items.

Another thing you can try:

Download the free Process Explorer.

Run it and click Find.

Click Find handle or DLL...

Search for \device\harddisk.

See if any of the search results might have a reason to be accessing the USB drive.

A:Auto play popping up constantly

For security reasons, auto-play is not a good idea. There are infections that specifically take advantage of flaws in the system.

You should also enable recovery points, it can be a life-saver if something goes wrong.

You may want to try disabling it and then re-enabling it for specific drives or types of files to see if that will help with your issue:

Hi and thanks in advance for any and all help received. I would also, in all fairness, wish to inform anyone concerned that you are currently reading the words of quite possibly the most computer illiterate human being in the free world. Having said that, I will attempt to explain my problem.
My computer has been becoming increasingly slower over the last several months. I have been dealing with/ignoring this problem until the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back began appearing on the computer screen yesterday. I am receiving this official looking warning on my computer that keeps popping up constantly with every action I attempt. The warning says:
SYSTEM ERROR
Your computer was infected by unknown trojan
It's dangerous for your system! ( critical files can be lost !)

From what Ive read on your site and others, I am assuming this is an attempt to get me to download even more trouble than what I am currently experiencing. I almost goofed up and downloaded it when it first popped up. In fact I clicked on the ok button but thankfully was warned that it was an unrecognized site and didnt have a valid signature or something to that effect (see, I told you I was computer illiterate) and I cancelled the attempt to download.

Hi grandmagail

Do you have Microsoft Office installed?

If so, insert the Office disk and direct the Windows Installer to the disk, for the source.
If it is not the source, you should see a message to that effect.
