Can't Cancel Install

Recommended Posts

Haaaalp! I unplugged my computer and when I plugged it back in I keep getting Windows Installer trying to install Roxio Media Manager. It won't cancel and it's taking all of my free CPU. It's asking for a CD with an msi file, but I can't find any CD that has that on it. Any suggestions as to how I can kill the WI or download the Roxio Media Manager.msi file would be appreciated.

What happens when you Ctrl/Alt/Delete and task manager appears?

I would try a Windows "System Restorepoint" just befor the installation try, and where you are shure the system was running fine.

How do I do that? I am running XP Pro SP2.

I'm running the German version, so I'll try to translate. May be it sounds a bit funny.

 

Under "Start" ; "All Programs"(alle Programme); "Tools"(Zubehör); "Systemprogramms"(Systemprogramme); "System recovery or restore" (Systemwiederherstellung) you will find two options (may be 3, if these function was used before) where you should select the first. There you can select a date and/or a time of an entry you know it works o.k. for you. Than follow the given instructions.

Looks as though that did it--thanks gebi.
