Running Vista Business, I am a home user( no network etc).

I keep getting this annoying popup titled Status

The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

Click OK to try again, or enter an alternative path to a folder containing the installation packgage 'status.msi' in the box below.

use resource
c:\users\owner\appdata\local\temp\7zs0FFC\setup\Status

Any suggestions?

Hi,
"7zs0FFC" did you install 7Zip recently, if so then this is the program that the msi is looking for. When you click ok does it want to look for a file in a location? find the 7Zip.msi install file and see if it works. Its also in the temp file have you used the disk clean program to see if you can delete the file?
You could also try uninstalling the program if it is 7Zip.
hope this helps.

I haven't installed that softare, and it doesn't exist on my Laptop.

The file in that location doesn't exist either.

I have tried ccleaner and advance system care, and neither of them resolved the problem?

Hi
were you able to find that file in that location? if so could you delete it manually? if the file is there and you can delete it amke sure you reset the permissions to the file, right click - properties - security tab. You could also try and boot into safe mode and delete the file. if not have you done a search of the registry as you can also delete the link to the file there as well. make sure you do a registry backup before you do this. have you installed any other programs recently if it is not 7Zip?
Cheers.

It wasn't anything to do with the 7Zip file, I read up on google - it was to do with HP Software, so I completely uninstalled my HP Software for my printer and that resolved the problem.

Reinstalled the software, and I have experienced any problems to date.
