Windows Modules Installer has stopped working

Windows Modules Installer has stopped working notification comes when I try
to find updates from control panel.

OS is fresh Acer OEM Vista Ultimate and it's broken right off the box.

Does anyone know why does that error come? I can use my computer as it is,
but I can't install anything. It seems that at least all the .msi install
files will break the Windows Modules Installer. Some programs like Firefox
and OpenOffice installs but for example Adobe Creative Suite doesn't.

Acer doesn't know how to help, just sent a recovery cd that takes two weeks
to arrive. Very good customer service, not!

Problem details:

Re: Windows Modules Installer has stopped working

Make sure the "Windows modules installer" service is not disabled.
Log on as an Administrator -

Start button || Control Panel ||System and Maintenance ||Administrative Tools

Double-click Services

(Provide the Administrator password or confirmation if prompted to do so.)

Right-click the "Windows Modules Installer" service, and select Properties.

Select General tab - make sure that Startup type is Manual.

Otherwise start a free Windows Update support incident request:

Re: Windows Modules Installer has stopped working

I have the same problem on two (2) brand new Acer Ferrari 1000 notebooks with
preinstalled Vista Ultimate. Will not connect to Windows Update service at
all. Both laptops just give the same error code: "Code 800706BE".

RE: Windows Modules Installer has stopped working

I have finally cracked the problem in my Acer Ferrari 1000.
It is a problem with the Windows Vista Ultimate build which comes with the
laptop.
I used another build Windows Vista build with the same Acer OEM ID and the
updates worked fine.
msn live was able to install, I was able to install all applications which I
was not able to install with the build part of the laptop.

Acer has agreed to send me a new build.

RE: Windows Modules Installer has stopped working

I have exactly the same error with my Acer Ferrari 1000. But i have no chance
to use another Vista Ultimate. So i am still hoping for a solution by
Microsoft or Acer.
