    Check the NTFS security on the %systemroot%\WINDOWS\Installer folder and it's contents. (Also on the prefetch folder. ) It should at least have the following perms set:

    Administrators Full Control
    System Full Control
    Users Read& Execute.

    Something, probably malware, hosed my security on the folder and removed the Administrators and Users perms. Once I gave it the above perms the installer msi packages started working again.

    Also check the Registry perms for the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer

    They should be set similiarly.

    Yeah, uh... Got any of them LAMENS terms? I'm running XP and I can't install ANYTHING at ALL becuse of these things. I JUST installed XP too so I don't know wth is going on here... nfst? wth is that and how do I slap it into shape so it will do what I tell it??

    QQ Please help good sir. I'm quite doomed here without your help! The only other thing I've seen to "fix" this error is to reset your time? like it is "wrong" so it wont work...? JUST installed XP people, time is perfect! But anyways, you sound like you know what's going on (much more than I do)... Step by step? Program to run...?

    First, spell it the same way the poster gave it and then do a search
    in your offline XP Help & Support. E.g. press Win-F1 then Alt-S,
    then type NTFS and press Enter...

    I think you'll find that people are quite willing to help by providing hints
    and tips but they will want you to do your share of the work too... ; }
