Windows 7: Uninstall and Remove Software in Safe Mode

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP 1

Like Supermonkey

"there does appear to be an error though: I had to call it MSIServer (not MSIService) with the value Service."

But it worked once I did that.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

I am trying to uninstall Skype in safe mode as nothing else I have tried works. Even tried using CCleaner. I went into the registry and performed all the steps. The response was an error, "Windows could not start the Windows Installer service on Local Computer. Error 1084. This service cannot be started in Safe Mode.

At Command Prompt, I got the error, "The Service name is invalid."
