This error is usually due to an incomplete install or uninstall of some HP software product. It may have been part of a bundled install and you overlooked it or were unaware of it. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/g...reg_R1002_USEN
Since you are unaware of how or where this bugger came from, a reinstall and clean uninstall may be difficult. The above ^ HP link has a second solution that may be just what need. Since this is an MSI error (microsoft installer error) Follow hps advice and download the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility
While you could hunt and peck and do a little manual detective work to track this down and try to clean it up yourself, I strongly suggest you use the ms cleanup Utility
. It will help to take some of the pain out of the process.
The below links are from a couple of past posts and I am including them here only for some additional info. and reference.
Additionally... I knew I had seen this recently. The big surprise, for myself, is how short term my memory was: http://windowsbbs.com/showthread.php...t=photogallery http://windowsbbs.com/showthread.php...t=photogallery
