f. Restart the computer, and then try to reinstall the OverDrive Media
I followed all of these steps. The original problem was with Overdrive Media Console---I use them for library audio books to download. Originally the error was with the ODM files. Then I rec'd this email from Overdrive. When I tried to adjust the registry issues to manually register the program, everything fell apart.
Now, I can't go back to a restore point and erase whatever stupid move I managed to make. I get the (0x8007000E) error when I try to to go back to a restore point.
When I try for installing/uninstalling anything, I get The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed.
I've screen capped both errors that I get, in case I missed something.
Any help would be appreciated.
