Check that your user account's temp folder is set correctly. And also, check that the Windows Installer service is not set to disabled.

Use services.msc in the start menu search box. Hit enter.

If you can't fix it, do a clean install.

Don't know when why or how the installer service got disabled, but it was the root of all despair.
