Spyware Blaster keeps launching MS Office Pro

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I hope someone can help me.  Lately whenever I try to run Spyware
Blaster, before it even gets going, I get a window over it that starts
trying to install MS Office Pro (which is already installed).  
I deleted Spyware Blaster, redownloaded it, reinstalled it, and it still
happens.

I'm guessing that Spyware Blaster's startup is somehow launching the
install portion of Office.  Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thank you,
J.

The problem is not with Spyware Blaster, it is with Microsoft Office and the
Windows Installer. You installed Office with something called "Install on
Demand". Portions of MS Office are supposed to completely install only when you
call for them. What exactly triggers this procedure, I do not know. But I do
know that it is extremely annoying and Office uses it on installation by
default. I have uninstalled Office on several machines, and reinstalled without
the "Install on Demand" option.
