Did all this, no joy.
1] Terminate the process manually and see if it appears again either in the current session or on restart. To do this, right-click on the Taskbar and select Task Manager. Under the Process tab, you may see the msiexec.exe process. Right-click on it and select End task. This will terminate the Windows Installer process.

2] Ensure that the latest version of Windows Installer is installed. Right-click on msiexec.exe, in the System32 folder, select Properties > Details. The latest version as of writing is 5.0.10586.0.

3] Maybe your Windows Installer file has been corrupted. Run System File Checker and reboot once the scan is completed. See this post if Windows Installer Service can not be accessed.


4] Now ask yourself, did you install any new software in the last day or two? If so maybe some background process or updating is still going on. Give the Windows Installer time to run and see if it shuts down after a while.

5] When you installed the software, did it install any third-party offers? Check the Control Panel. Maybe they are being installed. Check if any software which you installed or updated recently, bundled other software. If so it may be using this process. You may want to uninstall the unwanted applications.

6] Did you download or install anything of doubtful value? Maybe something is installing Malware or a PUP on your system. Run a full scan with your antivirus software along with AdwCleaner, which is a good tool to remove PUPs, Browser Hijackers & Adware. If msiexec.exe is located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder, then it is the legitimate Microsoft process. If it is located in any other folder, it could well be malware, as malware files can me named anything.

7] You may want also to consider re-registering the Windows Installer engine. To do so, open Command Prompt, type the following and hit Enter:

msiexec /unregister
Now to register it again, type the following and hit Enter.

msiexec /regserver
8] Download the Program Install and Uninstall Troubleshooter. This tool is the replacement for Windows Installer Cleanup utility which was discontinued. This tool will help you fix potential issues with Windows Installer.

Specifically, it will fix the following problems:

  1. Problems that prevent new programs from being installed, uninstalled or updated
  2. Corrupted registry keys that are related to these issues.
This troubleshooter works on Windows 10/8.1/8/7.

Let us know if anything helped, or if you have other suggestions.


Want to know how to make Windows Installer work in Safe Mode?

Edit: singurele property sheets sunt astea :facepalm:

Cred ca nu exista mouse care sa nu mearga fara drivere in Win. E drept ca nu are toate butoanele, led-urile si mai stiu eu ce, dar aproape sigur merge si fara.

Am dezinstalat toate prostiile gen Razer Synapse și Logitech el-crapo software pentru că nu mai folosesc decât Zowie FK-2 care nu are nevoie de drivere/software.

Mi se pare super aberant că nu există un "fix" de Windows care să rezolve Mouse Control Panel când Mouse Control Panel acceptă plugins de la unele periferice. Mă doare mintea :frown:

M-am mai uitat în shellexview, se pare că unele chestii apar ca System (ex: synaptics și logitech stuff). Vezi ce ai în categoria system și nu e de la microsoft în principal (uită-te și la filename).

Din punctul de vedere al windows, totul e ok - e ceva înregistrat ca extensie, pornește când îl cheamă; faptul că e o bălărie nu are cum să verifice.

Process explorer când apare chestia aia, să vezi cine o cheamă sau ce vrea? (command line/path etc)

Cheamă asta. Modulul care ar trebui chemat este main.cpl care include mai mult decât mouse. Keyboard nici ăla nu merge, dar Fonts merge - dar Fonts pare doar shortcut spre folderul de fonturi. "Printers" este mutat în "Devices and printers" și acolo merge tot :hmm:

Main.cpl Mouse, Fonts, Keyboard, and Printers properties
În schimb process explorer arată asta chemată (i-am dat scroll to new process apoi properties):

Ca idee, dacă încerc să RUNDLL32 SHELL32.DLL,Control_RunDLL MAIN.CPL,@0,1 pornește tot msiexecfmm.exe.

Ok, ăla e serviciul de installer, probabil pornit prin call de sistem. Tot trebuie să fie ceva care le leagă, dar e greu de identificat. Următorul pas ar fi procmon, dar trebuie să ai grijă la filtre, că ăla loghează tone.
