Windows 7: No access to the Windows Installer Service!! (please help me asap...)

No access to the Windows Installer Service!! (please help me asap...)


THIS is one of those excrutiatingly annoying problems that I've been trying to solve for the past 2 weeks through Google, Windows Help and God knows what else ... but nothing. I seriously hope anyone out there can help me ... it'd be much, much appreciated.

I have a problem with Windows Installer Service. As such I cannot install certain videogames (such as FIFA 08 or FIFA 10), certain programs (such as Microsoft Visual C++ 2010) or other bunch of stuff.
Strangely however, my "Windows Installer. V 5.0.7601.17514" is up-and-running through CMD and I also find it in Regedit.

Why doesn't it work, please? Do I have to delete Windows Installer completely and then reinstall it again? And how do I safely delete Windows Installer and where/how do i reinstall Windows Installer, please?

Please help me. I'm quite desperate here!

Many thanks in advance,

Bye for now

P.S.: I have also added no less than 3 Print-Screens. Although they're mostly in Dutch, the error is always the same; stating that Windows Installer cannot be found ...
