ok so i have been having problems the past few days with attempting to install programs that have a setup exe...when i begin the setup it goes through checking os, checking version of windows installer, then to configuring windows installer...from here (configuring windows installer phase) it just closes--no error no message it just closes entirely, nothing in tasks for nothing at all--thing is i havent installed nething for a while so i dont know how long it has been like this--i have ran programs to get rid of spyware, malware, virus's etc with no luck and ive attempted registry fixes in vain...so now im getting fairly impatient as ive search around alot for this problem but it seems generally i would get an error message of some sorts but im not so now im turning to help here, anyone have any idea whats wrong here

Windows Installer creates entries in the Windows event log.

To view the log, do the following:

Start >> Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Event Viewer.

Review the application log for Windows Installer entries. Look for red X errors. Double click on the error to open Event Properties. In "Description" there is a blue link for more info. Also take note of the Event ID. You can Google the Event ID to get more info. on the error.
