Earlyer today i noticed that my general setup was different but i paid it now mind untill i tryed to uninstall a program and then i start to get these messages about it couldn't access the windows intaller service or something like that, my installshield isn't working and i'm not sure really what to do. I have searched the microsoft site for a replacement but so far i haven't found anything to help, i'm not sure if alot of system files were lost or just this was messed up. i am runnin windows XP. the message also says that i am either in safe mode or the installer was installed wrong and i am not ni safe mode, i have cheaked that many times already, if you have a link to help or you know where i should go let me know. i am at a compleate loss.
