Windows 7: Deskjet 1050 and Windows 7

Windows 7 64
Deskjet 1050 and Windows 7

oh hello, Windows Seven Forum.

Well, i just bought both a new laptop and a new printer. the laptop being a HP Windows 7 64 bit, blah blah. and the printer/scanner being the Deskjet 1050.

Nooooow... i popped in the installation disk and... well, i won't install. it says "Installation Error: The Windows Installer Service cannot be accessed".

now I've Googled like crazy and nothing seems to solve the problem. I've gone to the HP website and downloaded the appropriate drivers and tried using that instead of the disk and just the same exact thing happens, "Installation Error".

so... does anyone know anything that can help?

Also, suddenly, I can't seem to download the new iTunes update either so... yeah. My laptop isn't being very helpful.
