    I cannot download any update due to the Windows Installer 3.1 for XP will not install. I get the 0x8ddd0007 Error stating the "Windows Installer was not installed." Then I am direct to restart my system to fix the problem. This does nothing and I am in a loop of restarting and still not getting Windows Installer to install. I can not get any updates until this problem is solved. I would rather someone help me to fix this problem without me having to Reformat my Hard Drive and do a complete new installation of WindowsXP. So, if anyone has a real answer to remedy this, I would appreciate your assistance. Thank you . . . HELP!!!
