I keep getting a Windows installer pop-up saying that "Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue....." I click "Ok," and the pop-up goes away but comes back.
I'm not trying to install anything, and I don't know what program may be trying to install or update or whatever it's doing. Is there a way to find out what program it is so I can get it to stop?
Type EventViewer in the Start Orb, search box, and then select it from the list that appears. Under Windows Logs > Application, have a look to see if any of the entries listed might correspond to the attempted installation.

Have a look at this little guide at the link below to see if there's an entry in the Windows 7 startup folder (msconfig) that could be causing this to keep trying to install, if so see if disabling/removing the entry will sort the issue for you.
