windows installer error 1601

  Liteman 16:08 13 Jul 08

Does any one know how to get round this error message when I try to instal anything. It started after I had to use system Restore to get back to a point before I installed SP3 which slowed up my PC to the extent that it took 15 minutes to react to a mouse click in Windows Explorer.

I'm using XP Home

Mfletch, it doesn't seem to help as it refers to msiexec.exe - this file is missing from system32 directory, msiexec with no extension is there though!

Getting a bit desparate now, does anyone have any ideas!

Probably no help as it is to do with Office here but worth a look.
