Windows Installer

Ever since I downloaded XP SP3 I have been plagued by problems. I can no lomger open up my MSN Premium
account to access my e-mails. Internet Explorer is totally messed up and it appears that anything Microsoft sourced has been effected. I cannot open up any download as Windows Installer now will not run.I just get a message saying 'contact your administrator'. That's me!

I have tried deleting the update-that only made matters worse. System Restore did not work either, no matter how far I went back.

Anyone got any ideas? Thank heaven for my laptop. At least Vista works, at a snails pace.

Did you take the steps listed by Ms prior to installing, especially turning off your AV and exiting all programs? click here

Are you running a Symantec/Norton product?
