Windows Installer Is Flashing Me

Windows 8.1 Symbols and Flashing Screen Won't Stop in General Support I turned on my laptop and after I logged on all my letters were replaced with symbols.

I cant stop the installer from flashing. I thought it froze on the BIOS splash screen for some reason, but it ended up loading the Windows 10 installer (albeit, it was very slow initially). So the INSTALLER keeps flashing on and off constantly.That would help me a lot if you were able to provide a screenshot of the problem. 0 #7 Vorkus Posted 06 February Walmart no longer uses it.

My System Specs You need to have JavaScript enabled so that you can use this ... The blue bar has white letters in it that says WINDOWS INSTALLER. Same exact problem - black screen, blinking cursor, no response. This problem arose simply by going into the Windows store and upgrading to 8.1 - no problem with IE on desktop before this.

But it goes on and off in about a tenth of a second. 0 #14 Ztruker Posted 10 February 2014 - 10:06 AM Ztruker Member 5k Technician 7,067 posts What about This issue can be a result of the system finding something that may resemble a drive other than the drive containing windows 10 usually due to settings in the bios. However, this was actually the final obstacle for me to get past after everything else. Just to be sure though can you recommend a decent malware scanner just in case.

If so what is the make and model?

To make a long story short it wreaks havoc all over the place. Often there are specific steps that you must take to completely remove the software. I did what you suggested and opened the HP Director. but of course it never does...

I just bought the printer about a year ago and have had several very long calls with HP only to have the problem reappear. Information from their web page: Quote: The Lite Version offers an unlimited number of scans. now restart the computer... Also, just as a precaution.

its done its job and now it can hang out while the suspected OS and Boot Sector takes the lead... So, instead of getting a new laptop, get a new HD. You noticed that the Windows Installer have a problem WHEN uninstalling the WalMart application and now you're looking for a way to fix it, is that right ? 0 #5 Vorkus what program in task manager do i end to stop this?

Click on boot sequence, and make sure that you are booting in UEFI mode, rather than Legacy mode. All submitted content is subject to our Terms of Use. after using chrome and the tile app for awhile, IE11-Desktop will gain coherency... Them make sure that you have your OS HDD(windows boot loader) as your primary boot option.

Keep an eye on this post. I have no idea why, none of the external items were new, but it worked. The only other time this happens is when I open my HP Director. Anyway, we'll continue this when you get home.
