That sounds suspiciously like you have captured an MSI.

Re-run the install and, when you see the first dialog, search for a new MSI. This normally get dumped into %TEMP% or %SystemRoot%\TEMP but these days some vendors are using a folder beneath %AppData%.

capturing an msi is a big no no.

Start again using a transform to make your changes

I think you're misunderstanding, what Ian means is that you did a setupcapture of an installer that was already an MSI to begin with.
While you run the original setup, keep an eye on the %TEMP% and %APPDATA% folders to see if an MSI gets extracted.

If this is the case you should use this MSI for your install, and modify it with your company-specific settings using a transform or .mst file.

Perhaps disabling advertisment for shortcuts might stop the self-repair. (of course that's if you didn't capture an MSI install, from memory cognos wasn't though depends on version you have_
