    Windows XP x64: The problem started 2 days after a new system install. After
    installing some programs and numerous updates. BOOM!!! The windows installer
    was not working even though the service appeared to be running. Followed the
    advise at MS KB and eventually tried re-installing installer. It is now not
    even showing up under Services. I can not install any programs and even one
    critical Windows update will not install. Appreciate any help.

    Hi,
    This is the latest windows installer available:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...6F-60B6-4412-95B9-54D056D6F9F4&displaylang=en
    and this is the installer you should be downloading:
    WindowsServer2003-KB942288-v4-x64.exe
