Hi Trapper,

It was fixed by using "Windows Installer Cleanup Utility".

  Use another software...iS THAT A SUGGESTGION??
  When you install it have you shut off everything else?
  is it not compatible with some of your other stuff??
  Is there any info in Bob's "event viewer" to give you a clue?
  is their a remnant left of an old unicare..is there something left that needs 
to be cleaned out first before you can re-install?

  Can you get another version( perhaps a update) or even an older one to 
install..perhaps your installation is cor

    Hi Guys,

    How do I stop Windows Installer from starting up when I try to download 
updates to SpywareBlaster?   Here is what has happened and I can recreate the 
errors by trying to update SpywareBlaster.
    1st Error Message:
    "Please wait while Windows configures The UNICARE Agent Assist"
    2nd Error Message:
    "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk 
that is not available."
    3rd Error Message:
    "Error 1706.  No valid source could be found for product The UNICARE Agent 
Assistant.   The Windows Installer cannot continue."

    The problem has been on this machine for about a year and it use to be 
associated with Adobe but that has stopped and now the program is Unicare.   I 
use to have the insurance software Unicare on this machine but I uninstalled it 
about a year ago.   I did write to the company Unicare and they cannot help me 
and tell me to call Microsoft;  that it's a Windows problem.   

    I google error1706 and there are several pages related to the problem but 
none to Unicare.

    I searched Microsoft database and there is no mentioned of Unicare, 
although the error 1706 shows up several times in the database.

    About 2 months ago I used regedit and deleted ALL references to Unicare.   
My computer crashed and then I had to use safemode to get the registry files 

    Btw, when I do try to update SpywareBlaster, I will go through the error 
messages 3 times (error 1, 2, 3 for 3 different occurrences) and then 
it(Windows Installer) quits and I can continue with SpywareBlaster.

    So, any body have any suggestions?
