Hi, I apologize in advance if I am in the wrong forum, but I was not able to find a good location for users with a problem such as this:

Since installing a program to my PC yesterday, everytime I restart my computer the installation for this program immediately starts up and claims that I am missing some sort of microsoft component, which it then claims to have installed and asks if i want to restart now or later.
I have now removed the program that i installed, but the installation still starts every time i reboot.

Is there a directory or reg setting that tells InstallShield to start this installation upon startup, which I can just remove??
Any help is MUCH appreciated!
Dave

Hi Dave -

This *might* help you out. It's the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

(Be sure to read the warnings)

I've used it for a similar purpose, (I assume you wrote the installer?), and it seems to work fine.

Hope this helps - Ben
