|Hi XP, |
Thanks for your reply.
I'm not sure where the add/remove is on my computer, so I opened up my Control Panel and then went to 'Programs/Features' which then opened up a file with all of the Programs and has the "uninstall, change, repair" option. I then searched for the Windows Installler, but it came up with nothing.
Then, per instructions online, I went to Start, searched 'cmd' and entered MSIExec in the Command Prompt.
A box popped up with all of the Windows Installer information, I have pasted it at the bottom of this email.
I also went to Start and typed in 'services.msc' and in the services prompt I found the Windows Installer programs and determined that the Windows Installer was not disabled, but is in the Manual mode and has also been "started."
What else should I do?
