Well now to the topic. A few days ago Windows Installer started to be "unaccessible". By unaccessible I mean won't let me install any programs! The full Error are as follows:
"The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."
Condition at that time:
- NOT running in Safe Mode
- No anti-virus open
- Downloaded the program fully, not corrupted or anything
- Trusted download site
- Downloaded and reinstalled Windows Installer. But still no dice.
- Checked if Windows Installer Service is Enabled. And yes it was.
- System Restore. Tried it didn't work, said I can't go back and Tried it in safe mode. Same thing. After this ineffectiveness I disabled System Restore.
There's also the possibility of a Registry error which I hope would not be the case cause I don't want to be touchin' that values XD. I think I may have messed up my settings a while back. I don't really remember.
And if it means anything, I use a P2P program so I think it's perfectly justifiable where I got it if it's a virus.
Please help, I can't continue working on my PSP with this nasty virus/situation. Thank you very much for any suggestions.
