SP2 and Windows Installer

    Just installed SP2 on my Windows XP Home computer.

    When computer is turned on, all seems to be loading ok, but a "Windows
    Installer" box appears with the message "preparing to install" - the only
    option being a Cancel button. It doesn't seem to affect the loading, and
    goes away eventually with no apparent ill-effects.

    Using Ctrl-Alt-Delete just shows "Windows Installer" as a Task, with no
    clues as to what it is trying to install.

    I don't wish to slow down loading - any ideas what this is?

    You may not have gotten SP2 completely installed, try uninstallilng it and
    reinstalling it to see if that makes the installer window go away. SP2 will
    be listed under add/remove programs in Control Panel
