So I've been attempting to fix my windows system using the windows repair service. However the Windows repair service won't start, so tried running the windows updater, and that wouldn't work either, giving me "System Error 126: The specific module could not be found". I fixed it according to [this](https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/959077/error-message-when-you-start-the-windows-modules-installer-service-trustedinstaller-system-error-126-the-specific-module-could-not-be-found) guide. Now when I try to run 
"net start trustedinstaller", I get "System error 193 has occurred, *** is not a valid Win32 application." I can't seem to find any solutions online for this, if anyone could help me, that would be great. 
 
 
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on a 32 bit system.

That error is occurring because there is a space in the file path to the trustedinstaller you are trying to run. See the following two links for this error code resulting from that issue:

When you followed the steps in the Microsoft support article listed above, did you place the trustedinstaller file in a folder that has a space in the name? Or does the name of the trustedinstaller itself have a space in it? If so, you will have to correct this before the installer will work.

what software version you want to install, first check what windows you are using windows 32, 64 bit or what, and install accordingly.

Here's a picture of the key in the registry (http://imgur.com/a/yP64Q) and the trustedInstaller.exe file, if that helps.

 

 

When I followed the instructions in the Microsoft support article, I didn't have to move trustedInstaller.exe from it's file location at C:\Windows\servicing. However when I referred to it's filepath in the registry I was told to append %SystemRoot% in place of C:\Windows, for some reason I don't fully understand.

I'm running windows 32, but I'm unable to install windows related programs due to the lack of windows updates.
