There is no such thing as the “installer” to turn on. Installer is simply a generic term to describe  the various install programs for whichever application you are trying to install. For example NVDA has an install program to install it on your computer.

Generally these programs can be identified by the existence of the words install or perhaps setup included in their filename or if they have the filetype msi at the end of the file name. Windows will identify these msi files as install file.i

Regarding the first problem, it sounds like you either have too many
background services running, or your system is simply not powerful
enough to run a screen-reader comfortably. Although NVDA is (as far as I
know) one of the most lightweight screen-readers around, unfortunately
all such programs are necessarily somewhat resource intensive. Without
knowing more information (E.G. what version of Windows you're running),
I can't say anything more specific. It could also be an issue of NVDA
addons. Have you recently installed any? Do you have a lot of addons

Turning to your second issue, have you tried switching to the installer
or UAC window? Sometimes they don't always come to the foreground. It
could also be a matter of Windows Smart Screen. I believe this is
accessible with NVDA, but may need to be switched to as well. Beyond
that, I can't help as I have it disabled.
