    Hi,
    The service that is missing is “Windows Installer”.
    This prevents “Windows Update” and several new stand alone programs, from installing with the error “Service: Windows installer.msi is not installed”- please see your system administrator.
    Have tried the Repair from “Windows recovery DVD” which cannot find any problem?
    My guess is that its a Registry Problem one of the keys got trashed?
    John
