    I am attempting to install a new (new to me) program-McAfee Total Protection. During the installation I was advised to remove 3 incompatible software programs. I successfully removed 2 of them but when it came to the 3rd (Sygate Personal Firewall)I got this error message:
    "Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if running Windows in Safe Mode or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance." I was not in Safe Mode and have now way to determine if the Windows Installer is correctly installed. Any suggestions?
