I am runnnig Windows XP Pro SP2. I was having a lot of problems with screen fonts not showing up as sharp as they should. Decided to do a XP install/repair which went fine. Then found however that Windows Installer 3.1 which is the first update that Windows Update wanted to install, would not install and gave insatll failed message. It then wnated me to rebott which I did and after rebooting the windows auto-update started with the same result. Consequently I cannot get any of the updates from windows that I need to install in order to get my system back up to date. Have now recovered my system using a Ghost image which I made before trying to repair Windos.
Anyone any idea as to why Windows Installer 3.1 won't install?
