Windows Installer Launches

  • Every time I launch Vivaldi I get the Preparing to Install...dialogue. I have searched here but cannot determine how to get it to stop. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Vivaldi. It may have occurred when I uninstalled Nero (what is that? Do I need it?)
    Thanks in advance.

    @tiger_words Nero is a CD/DVD-burning utility. Windows has this capability built-in (tho not as fancy as Nero) so, arguably you don't need it. It's possible that removing Nero corrupted the part of your registry that catalogs the completion of write-to-disk, so that Windows can no longer tell that Vivaldi is finished installing. Have you re-started your computer since you a) installed Vivaldi and b) uninstalled Nero?
