    Windows keeps trying to install Money (XP)

    A while back, I started to install MS Money, then realized I didn't need it at the time. So I canceled the install somehow.

    Now, at *every* startup, Windows tries to complete the Money install, and I have to click through several Windows messge boxes to move on.

    Money does not appear on my Add or Remove Programs list. How can I convince my computer that I really, really don't want to install Money at this time?

    Can you complete the installation? If so, you should then be able to remove it the usual way.
    If not, you may could try removing all references to MS Money from the registry, but take great care not to mess up things!

    <hr>...try removing all references to MS Money from the registry...<hr>

    I was afraid you were going to say that! Since the CPU with this situation is at my home-office and I'm at work at the moment, I will have to wait until I'm there to see what's in the Registry. I will back it up if I need to muck about in it.

    Try to use System Restore first. Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore, select "Restore my computer to an earlier time" , and choose the date (marked bold ) before you tried to install MS Money.

    Thanks for the suggestion; hadn't thought of that.
