When I go to Windows Installer properties in services.msc, it's already set to manual, but the menu is greyed out, meaning I can't change it which leaves me to believe it's either stuck on automatic or it's a different problem. I've tried both in safe mode and in normal mode (which took like half an hour to load)
I love it when a plan comes together
Ok,lets re register the service.,
Open an elevated command prompt:(Go to Start Menu,right click and choose"Run as Administrater")
In the Command Prompt window, type the following ,one by one and then press “Enter” after each command.
Once you,ve done that,check if the command were processed successfully.
If it was successfully processed, then type “Exit” and press “Enter”.
Now, check the status of the “Windows Installer” service from “Services.msc”.
If that works,great,if not we should run the system file checker.
Instructions here.Best bet is use Option 3,To Run SFC /SCANNOW Command in Windows 10
If the file checker finds problems it cant fix we need to run the DISM Repair Tool.
Instructions here:(Use option 1,To Run "DISM /Cleanup-Image" Tool in Command Prompt)
Let us know how it goes,or if you need any further assistance.
