Windows Installer Problem

  1. I keep having this error ><

    "Error 1719: The Windows Installer service could not be accessed" error message when you try to add or remove a program

    Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. You may be running in safe mode or Windows Installer may not be correctly installed.
    (2nd one specifically)

    I went to to solve the problem, yet, it still didn't help.

    I've re-installed my Windows XP SP2 before because of this error (after I followed the way Microsoft told me). Still I get this problem.

    I really have no idea what the problem is ><

    I've re-installed the Windows like 3~4 weeks ago and this happens again ><

    It did say that sometimes Microsoft Office 2003 is the cause of this, but I've used it before. Only thing I haven't done is updated it, which I've been updating it recently. Is it because I've updated the Microsoft Office?

    Please help! I don't wanna use my CD-Key for my OS again ><

    Thank you!

    Thanks kitty^^

    Though, I think I found the problem. I think its related to the Microsoft Office 2003 update.

    And for some reason there was something in my Add/Remove program area. Something named Compatibility Database thing, which has the word Office in it. Stupidly I removed it because its hardly being used and its some kind of network program. After that, everything is back to normal! Praise the PC for that^^
