Windows Installer service could not be accessed.

Please help somebody!
Everytime I try to open Microsoft Word I keep getting this error message - Windows Installer service could not be accessed. It then goes on to say that I might be in safe mode (I'm not)or that Windows Installer is not correctly installed.
I need to sort this out asap but don't know what to do!
I'm a total novice at this kind of thing.

Try this click here

It isn't obvious wht=y Word is asking for an installer but hopefully this may cure it. Have t=your Office or Works CD to hand.

I have already tried this though.
One of the files didn't help and the other one (58 KB) I couldn't open. I kept getting the same error message.

I get a box coming up every time I log on - "Windows Installer - preparing to install". Nothing happens and I have to click on cancel twice to get rid of it.
