Some days ago I did reinstall my Windows XP Home Edition.
I did no clean reinstall, just reinstalled it but told the installation to keep my old files, users, settings and so on.
When the reinstallation was ready, I started Windows as normal, and things seemed to work. Until i tried to install a program. Now, everytime when I try to install anything, the installation starts with the normal "packing up files blaha blaha blaha to start installation..", but when the actual installation is about to start I get this error message that look something like this:
"The service Windows Installer could not me used.
This may happen if you are running Windows in secure
mode or if the Windows Installer wasn't installed properly."
I may also point out that I'm not running Windows in secure mode, I have never had this problem before, and I also have reinstalled Windows before. Could someone please help me?
