    Windows installer starts on boot up.

    On boot up on my Vista machine, the Window Installer automatically is starting up but hangs asking to install a file that's missing "from a network resource" (the dialog box is asking to browse for the file). How can I stop this from happening. There's nothing in the Startup folder and I've cleaned out the registry using CCleaner.

    Any suggestions?
