For a computer forum, neowin is pretty unhelpful these days.
Got this error message - "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed"
No i'm not in Safe Mode.
So i follow the guide on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315346
the MSIexec.exe is listed in the System32 folder.
I follow the guide as far as locating the folder in the registry, but it's not there:
What to do?
