I have upgraded my OS from Win98 to XP Home Edition & I have several problems. I cannot install my new Office XP software or software for my Ipod & I cannot uninstall software. I keep receiving the following error message: The Windows Istaller 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. I have tried restoring back to 98 & then reinstalling XP, but the same thing happens. Can anybody help? Thanks in advance.
Thanks Lozzy. I did a complete new full Installation & changed file system to NTFS & I can now install other software. However, I can see all my previously installed software on Windows Explorer, but cannot get the Program Files to appear on the start menu. I cannot find appropriate box to tick to get it to appear. Any help??
