Hi, I'm having a big problem and any help would be appreciated.

Whenever I am trying to install a new program that I have downloaded off the internet (that uses Windows Installer to install), I get an error message that says

"The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."

I have searched all over the internet for Windows Installer to download (so I can replace my bad version), but I have found none because XP is supposed to have Windows Installer built in. I have also searched through my driver and utility CDs that came with my Dell computer but there was no luck there either. I cannot install almost ANY SOFTWARE!
OS:Win XP sp2
Athlon 3000+
1G Ram 129 G HD
THANKS, BOB
