Windows 7: Windows Installer Help

Windows Installer Help

So I am trying to install a driver from Nvidia, but when I try and run the exe, I get a message from windows security that says that my internet settings prevent me from opening MSIEXEC.exe. But when I go into the system 32 folder and open MSIEXEC.exe from there I don't get the message. Any ideas??? I have already disabled every firewall and bit of security I have in order to try and fix this but no solution.

Edit: After messing around, I found that the problem only occours when I try to install the driver, nothing else.

Edit: Oh and it doesn't matter where I download the driver from, they won't run.

  1. On the "Start" menu, Type Run in the search bar and hit enter.

  3. On the "Start" menu, Type” Run” in the search bar and hit enter.
  4. In the "Open" box, type "msiexec /regserver", and then press ENTER.
I would also suggest you to run System File Checker and see if it helps, here are the steps:
  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator.
  2. Click Continue or supply Administrator credentials if prompted.
  3. In the Command Prompt window type the following, and press Enter
sfc /scannow
