I have been trying to install a new program on my computer and get an error message saying the Window Installer can't be accessed. I have tried to reinstall the Window Installer via their web site but it hasn't helped.

Perhaps this Microsoft page will be of some help:

"Error 1719: The Windows Installer service could not be accessed" error message when you try to add or remove a program
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
