Windows Installer

I recently had a problem with MS Office and i had to delete the program. I then tried to re-install it but i now keep getting the following message:
The Windows Installer could not be accessed. This can occur if running in safe mode or if windows installer was not correctly installed.
I am not running in safe mode, i've had no problem installing programs until now. I've done a disc check for errors and a defrag and restarted the computer but its still the same. I even tried to download an update for windows installer but this makes no difference.
Has anyone any ideas?

you had to delete MS Office, do you mean you deleted it, or uninstalled it with add/remove?

i had already tried re-installing windows installer 3.1 but it still didnt work, so i removed the program completely using add/remove programs and then went and installed it from scratch again. Hooray!! it works. Many thanks everyone.
