Getting following error opening ArcGIS 9.1...

The file F-MIT.msi cannot be found.. Asks you to browse to the file which be default it looks like its usually stored in some temp folder. We recently ran a cleanup of all temp files on this system but it was a couple weeks ago and ArcGIS has worked since then. Anyway - click on cancel on the error and get the following: Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product F-MIT. The windows installer cannot continue. Click on close or ok on this and you can go into the software and use it as normal. I looked for this file on the install CDs and could not find it and searched the entire C drive and it was not found. Any thougts?

Thanks!

A google search for F-MIT.msi disclosed three possibilities:

"Free Musican Instrument Tuner" program

F-Mit is a piece of MSN that needs to be uninstalled, after which that error should go away.

F-Mit stands for FEMA Map Image Tool. FEMA, as in, Federal
Emergency Management Agency, has a Flood maps program used by
insurance agents to determine flood areas.

The last two possibilities came from the above link:

The following web page also mentions the FEMA Map Image Tool, and there are a couple of suggestions for solution of the problem:
