Windows installer problem.....

  AllZwell 13:02 04 Mar 2007


I have had this problem now for nearly a month but can’t seem to sort it.

What happens, is every time I want to install office, or connect to the internet (and other things) I get the "preparing to install" prompt everytime.

Since then, I have downloaded some programmes ("dial-a fix") to unregister the installer. The prompt doesn't come up then, but neither can I install office 2003 (or uninstall similar programmes) I get "uninstaller not found" or something similar.

I have D/loaded 3.1 installer from Microsofft, and but no success there I’m afraid. If anyone can help me sort this I would be much appreciated, as a full format seems on the cards ATM!!:(

System Restore to a time before this happened ?


Do you get any error codes such " Error 1719 "

If so try reinstalling the Windows Installer via method 2 click here

System restore has no effect. no 1719 error either (AFAIK). Will have a look at the link. thanks
