Right Mouse Click in MY Computer runs Installer

  rabbitwabbit 17:00 15 Jan 2005

I have a weird problem when I Right Mouse Click any of the drives in My Computer (Including removable drives). Immediately MSIEXEC.EXE runs and attempts to install Roxio 6 (already installed and working OK on my PC). When I cancel this twice, the original click is actioned and allows me to view the entries on the right mouse click window. If I then select one of the options (e.g. Properties), the installer runs again - after cancelling again the properties box is displayed. In task manager both KNLWRAP.EXE and IKERNEL.EXE are left running. No viruses are detected and no spyware has been detected by Spybot.

Have you tried a repair install of Roxio? Try it from Add/Remove Programs.

If you right click other items like files or desktop icons do you get the menu options you would expect ?

If not, check control panel/mouse and look at button assignments.

Good thought Topdude, but files etc were OK. I've tried an uninstall and clean re-install on Roxio and this has resolved the problem. Thanks Guys!!
