    Windows Installer Keeps Popping

    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.)

    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.

    Do a system restore point before the registry program did its damage, or restore the registry via the registry backup the program should have done before doing anything.

    System Restore

    Next step:

    Uninstall all software enhancement or optimizing or registry cleaning software.
    None of that is needed and only causes more problems.
