No windows installer

  Bribabby 15:45 17 Feb 11

When I try to download a prog a window opens saying"Could not start Windows Installer service on local computer".
Have been into "Services" and set Windows installer to Automatic, apply and start. The line says "automatic" and start but still no joy. Have downloaded "Windows installer v4.5" opened it and still no joy except the "Windows installer" box flashing on screen.When I then try to download, a window appears saying"Error 1058,the service cannot be started either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it"
The services page still says automatic and start.
Any ideas anyone?

It should be set to 'Manual'.

Further details about your OS please.
