    when i try to install/uninstall, i get a message service could not be accessed.

    i followed a link from here and have checked the location of the msiexec.exe file and the path/value is correct in the registry.

    but i have 2 msiexec.exe files, 1 in w\sys32, the 3.1 version and 1 in w\spf\i386.

    could having 2 files be part of the problem?:cool:

    no, it doesn't look like it will solve my problem.

    i want to remove some programs that aren't working right and then reinstall them but as stated, i can't install/uninstall.
