How To Repair Windows Installer

If your computer is always asking about installation source every time you run an application,
for example MS Word, MS Excel, ect.
I have tips to solve this problem by changing some registry on your
computer system, and do not be afraid of doing it because this way you
only need to copy the reply I gave Script below and paste it in notepad
and save with extension ".reg" (for
example: fix.reg or repairwinxp.reg, what ever you like).

After that double click .reg file.

Generally  this error occurs because you have deleted your word.exe & excel.exe files to confirm of deletion of these application file you can check by following pathway.  If they are not there means you should restore deleted file from Recycle Bin.

I have an Acer 3680 that has slowed down to a crawl. Can you fix this so that it runs at a normal computer speed?


uninstall any programmes you no longer use, run a virus and spyware scan, as this alone may be the cause, if you have non installed go here:-

check you have atleast 1GB of hard drive space free as this can cause slow ups and look how much memory is installed as you may need to upgrade the amount of memory to work newer and more memory hungry applications
