|Im fixing someones pc. It wouldnt boot, so I did a repair install. All seems fine until I have to install the first update which is the Microsoft WIndows Installer 3.1 (WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86). Such things as System restore fails to work, add/remove (appwiz.cpl) fails to load. System restore keeps saying something about drive D not being monitored which doesnt matter as I made a system restore point with it off. I double click add/remove programs and nothing happens.|
Ive scanned for malware, adware and viruses using avira, spybot and malwarebytes. It found sum, I removed them and did a new repair. No change, would always break when install the 3.1 Installer. Tried both the automatic updates, and downloading the file from Microsoft.
Running sfc doesnt make a difference.
Any help appreciated.
