My Windows Installer Service is missing. How do I get it back?

My Windows Installer Service is missing. How do I get it back? I'm unable to install any programs or open my Outlook due to the missing install service.

Can anyone help me on fixing this issue?

Hello smolsbee and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if this article helps:

How to Fix the "Windows Installer Service could not be accessed" Error in Windows 7

You could also try running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan at least three times and reboot your computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back if anything helped or not.
