    Stuck in Restart to complete installation loop


    Some time ago I installed some software (on Windows 8.1) that went wrong (couldn't install the software and subsequently a computer crash) and the installation was messed up.

    Now, every time I boot my machine I am getting the standard Windows needs to restart to finish the installation dialogue.

    I can't get this to go away. No matter how many times I restart.

    I didn't have a restore point set up prior to this (as this is a relatively new Windows installation) so can't restore out of this problem.

    I was wondering if someone could tell me how I can kill this process that is causing this restart message as I am unable to find what I need to do to stop this from happening.

    Thank you

    Obviously something wrong with that program, see what happens from the Safe mode.
