Windows 7: Windows Installer - can't install ANY msi package

I was able to find a restore point that got me working again. In my case, I believe it was the Epson printer drivers for my Epson Workforce 600. It installs a suite of software; not sure which was the culprit.

Hi,

just wanted to report that the same thing happened to me today. It seems that it happened when I tried to install the Mirror's Edge game. The game automatically installs (among other things) the C++ 2005 32 bit redistributable, and after this installation failed (causing the entire game installer to crash), I haven't been able to install anything without a crash. Not so nice

I can't believe this!
Two hours ago i reinstalled Windows 7. Everything was ok, but now i have the same problem again! Programs installed in this short time
Picasa 3
Firefox
Winrar
Foobar
TheKMPlayer

Nothing else. So, the solution must be other: a new, clean installation of windows 7 isn't a long-term solution.

Any help?
