Not sure about the error, but with all the installing/uninstalling going on, have you been maintaining your hard drive? If not, may I suggest scanning your hard disk and also defragging with JkDefrag, it's in my signature. Also, you might need to clean out your registry, I prefer CCleaner, which is also in my signature. Sometimes doing these can clean up some problems like this...

Cheers :whistling:

Seeing as you are trying to install Adobe Photoshop, have you looked at their support site? Someone may have mentioned it there, or you could try e-mailing them and see if they've heard of it before.

You might try the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility .

you might want to try updating your installer to 3.1 then control panel> administrative tools> services> installer>properties and select the automatic option . start service if its stoped or restart if its running.

i did update it, and set my window installer services setting to automatic. but oddly, the status of the program is stopped. when i tried to start it back again i get another error: "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"
