shahzoor--Perhaps of help though in many ways it is just a simplified version of what orangutang suggests.

Is Windows Installer offering to install a specific program?  The Office installation may not have finished.

At the end of the installation do you tell it to clear the cd cache? I've had this problem before after checking the that option at the very end. The problem is when a new user logs in after installing Office, it thinks that it needs to basically reinstall one the first use. You might try leaving the cd in and let it run its course once. If all else fails you could disable it from starting up in msconfig.

Were you able to narrow down the problem by looking at the event viewer?

Yes it showed me that MS Project is causign it, i uninstalled it, then it showed me that Visio is causing it, i uninstalled that also, then Frontpage and then Office itself and problem was gone :(

I copied files from MS Office CD to harddisk of the same computer and installed it from there. When pc started i loaded with different profiles and it just kept popping up all the time. Even on same account whenever i start Word the installer starts everytime and repeats itself 6-7 times b4 i can use Word :(
