Windows 7: Corrupt Windows Installer entries

Windows 7 64-bit and Ubuntu 9.10 dual-boot
 
 

If I reinstall any MSI package it will display the same error message again, and the installation will fail. Is the only way to reinstall Windows 7?

If you are getting an error on reinstall then there is something else wrong. You could go through the registry and delete all the registry keys for the software. However if you have more than 3 or 4 software installed I would just do a clean install of Windows 7. It will be faster and you will know that your machine is setup correctly. Windows 7 installs so fast and you will have to re-install the software anyway so a clean install is the best route.

If you do, get your setup in shape with the setting up windows guide in my sig, and then image your system!

You could reinstall Msi package to uninstall them afterward so it could clean any defective Msi Pack?
Then get your 7 Install?
