Not able to uninstall an MSI on Windows 7

Hello

When I try to uninstall any MSI that installs a service on Windows 7, it crashes throwing a message:

"Error ID 1719 The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."

Any ideas??
