So I have windows 7, and Ive got this annoying ASUS InstAll program that launches every time on start up. Problem is, I cant get it to stop loading. Ive tried using CCleaner to stop it but it doesnt show up, Im guessing since its technically not a program loading on startup, but an installer. I've also tried going into administrative tools in the control panel is well to stop it, but its not listed. I thought about going at it from the registry, but I really dont want to mess up my other ASUS software. Anyone got any ideas?

All that happens on boot is the program called Asus InstAll asks for the cd and then you can click OK and it goes away, but this happens EVERY TIME. Regardless of whether I give it the cd or not.

Thank you!

Try this.
Go to Start; and type in "msconfig" without the quotes.
Then go over to the startup tab and check if it is there.

I know somebody else had this exact same thing happen a few months ago. It was solved, but I cannot remember how.

He tried that already. It says it right in the original post.

You could try to do this in registry and delete it.
Start Menu > Run "regedit"
Then follow each sub-section to get to the "Run" folder.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\ CurrentVersion\\Run

Check if you can find "InstAll" or something similar in the Data column.
If you do find it, right-click on it and click on "Delete".

Doesn't delete the program, but stops the program from running on start up.

Best of luck.

Can you post a screenshot? I am almost 100% certain I saw somebody else have this same issue, and I'm thinking that perhaps a screenshot might jog my memory (or at least help me find the thread).
