|Method 1 didn't work (I've tried it twice before) so I tried Method two.|
At the point where you rename "msi.dll" to "msi.old", it says it cannot find the file specified.
EDIT: Also, despite the installer for WI 4.5 completing, it did not ask me to restart, nor did the Hotfix appear in A/R Programs. So, apparently I can neither install nor uninstall any software whatsoever.
If worst comes to worst, I wouldn't mind "Repairing" XP with the command line on the disk, since I can just back up my files to my Ubuntu Linux partition.
EDIT 2: Thank God for System Restore! It was the CCleaner scan that caused all this mayhem! I went back to a point before I did the scan, when I installed the Microsoft Zune software for my sister's Zune. Now Windows Installer works, and I installed a new antivirus (Avira AntiVir Personal) successfully. I was wondering about that. So does this mean CCleaner, a very reputable program, is malicious?
Scabies or not to scabies, that is the infection.
