Please try re-installing Windows Installer Service. You could also try updating it to the latest one here:

How to make windows installer work in safe mode


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Windows Installer will not work under Safe Mode, this means that programs cannot be installed or uninstalled in safe mode without giving a specific command using msiexec in command prompt.

To make Windows Installer work under safe mode, you need to create a registry entry for every type of safe mode you are logged in to.
  1. Safe Mode.
    Type this in a command prompt:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"
and then net start msiserver This will start the Windows Installer Service.
  1. Safe Mode with Network
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
\SafeBoot\Network\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"
and followed by net start msiserver This will start the Windows Installer Service.

Why will my laptop only work in safe mode?


If the laptop is only loading in safe mode, it might be a recent software install or even windows update causing the problem, you should be able to access system restore in safe mode, use this to roll it back to a date before it stopped working.

My samsung n145 plus netbook was shut down during windows updates. Now when it's powered up all I get is the blue light to indicate this and nothing on the screen. It just stays black.


If it was shut down whilst in the middle of installing updates then you might have a corrupt start up file . Try to boot into safe mode --tap the f8 key while your computer is booting then on the menu select safe mode or safe mode with networking . If you can boot here go into administrator account and try to to do a windows restore .if successful you can then re-download the windows up-date and install it properly.. If you cant access safe mode then you might have to repair the boot records which is too technical to explain in detail here .

I hope this helps

Vista boots just Black screen with cursor even in safe mode


Yes, this is a known issue with Vista. You need to back-up your data, format your hard drive and re-install Vista from the beginning.
There is really no use trying to repair it: it is damaged.
After you re-install Vista, do not forget to install service packs from microsoft.com.

New application software can not installed


I SOLVED THIS ON MY LAPTOP BY REINSTALLING THE WINDOWS INSTALLER. THIS PROBLEM USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN THE INSTALLER IS CORRUPTED BY SOME MALFUNCTION. THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO UNINSTALL AND RE-INSTALL THE PROGRAM FROM THE MICROSOFT WEBSITE. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.
