    My windows installer services automatically stops even when I'm in an installation. I can't install anything that uses installshield.

    Please help.

    Can you open up the event viewer and provide some event id's for the windows installer? I have never had good luck with a corrupt windows installer. From what I've read, if you have SP2 installed seperatly, you can remove it and reinstall it. Otherwise if your copy of XP is newer you can do a repair install. Even then it's not guranteed to fix it. I would just a system file check first.
