Hello, my name is Tracy Grimo my windows installer is not working. I can't remove any programs from my control panel like Microsoft Office and quicktime. I can't run my virus scan. I went to run and typed msconfig and went to windows installer and saw that it's stopped and clicked it then clicked OK and restarted my computer and tried to uninstall Microsoft Office and it wouldn't uninstall correctly. I don't know what else to do. Can you please help me. So I can get my computer back together normally.
