Hey all. My computer has been experiencing some problems with Windows Installer recently (unable to install or uninstall any programs that uses Windows Installer) and it is also unable to install Windows Updates for Office etc. I have tried all the solutions posted on Microsoft (unregister, regserver, changing permissions, renaming with .old etc.) but nothing seems to work. I've tried using Dial-A-Fix and tracked what's going on with AnVir Task Manager and it seems that the msiexec service is terminated right after it is started. It has been set on Automatic under Services but it still doesn't work.

I think I also replaced one of the msxml..dll with one stored elsewhere on the hard disk as suggested by some sites, so could that have caused some of the problems? Anyway, I'm not even sure if the problem is caused by any malware or virus, but since I don't know what else to do, I've tried HiJackThis. Hopefully this can reveal what the problem is. Thanks in advance for any sort of help you can provide.
