Yesterday, on a whim, I decided to install Windows 8 Consumer Preview on an old netbook. Since the netbook was running ArchLinux, I decided to download the Windows 8 Preview setup application and create a bootable flash drive using that per what I believe is Microsoft's recommendation (rather than downloading the ISO directly).
Long story short, I noticed the download was taking way too long, so I closed the download window, deleted the temp directories, and deleted the downloaded set up application without much thought.
This morning, the download window popped up again. I can't see an entry in the "Add or Remove Programs" window for the Windows 8 Consumer Preview installer and there is nothing in scheduled tasks. Could you please tell me how to get rid of this downloader?
I am running Windows XP SP 3, in case that matters.
