It will unexpectedly shut down with the error number 1073741819. NT Authority\system C\windows\system services exe


Try starting up in Safe Mode. When the computer turns on , immediately begin hitting F8 like mad until you get a screen where you can use the arrow keys to select how to start up. Use "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking".

If you can boot up fine without the error, then you have a program installed which starts up along with Windows and crashes, causing Windows to shutdown. Check your installed programs, especially anything you might have removed/added right before this started happening.

If you can't start up in Safe Mode either, there may be something wrong with your Windows installation.

How to make windows installer work in safe mode


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.

2.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.

My computer shows that it is connected but i can not access the web page.


Try starting Windows in Safe Mode with Networking. Press <F8> before Windows boots. If you can connect can connect to the Internet in Safe Mode, your PC might be infected with Spyware/Malware.

Download and install the following software:
  1. Combofix
  2. Malwarebytes
Scan your PC with both and see if this works. When you get your PC back in normal mode and you still can't connect, you may have to do an integrity check of the OS. See the following link:

When you are restarting the PC - Press F8 Key till you get the options to Boot
Choose Last Known Good Configuration and load windows
Once you have logged into your PC - try to MSCONFIG

If that does not work, Open Task Manager ( CTRL + ALT + DEL ) key and Click on Services Tab. Click the Services Button below. and it should let you open SERVICES.MSC

Disable all the Antivirus software installed ( double click on the software name and under Startup type - choose Disable )
Also Disable the Windows Installer

Try to access or Download some Virus program to Run or Clean.

Well my problem that everytime i log onto my website erything keeps popping up ok please i need help


If this happens every time you try to access the internet then it sounds to me like you have spyware on your PC. There are several anti spyware programs out on the net that you can grab.

The one that I use and is free by the way is superantispyware. You can get it at superantispyware.com. If you can, download it onto your pc. If not, download the program from another computer, transfer with usb drive, and then install.

Install it, see if it will update during the install, and then I would suggest you run it in safe mode. You can access safe mode by pressing the F8 key while the pc boots up. Once in safe mode, run the program accepting all the defaults. Anything that it finds will be spyware and you can safely let it remove it.

If you are unable to update during the install, that is ok, still run it in safe mode. Once it removes everything it can, restart normally and retry your update. If it is successful then re run the program in safe mode again to make sure everyhing that it can find gets taken off.

Post comment if you have any further questions.

Hope this helps.

I can not install OfficeSuite. I have Windows Vista home Premium. I had downloaded updates all afternoon and it still shows error 1719 Window installer not correctly installed. Help!


Download:Windows Vista Service Pack 1

I tried personally in WIN-XP worked same applies to Vista.

Error Message:
Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. You may be running in safe mode or Windows Installer may not be correctly installed. Translation:
This message might appear when you’re trying to add or remove a program that installs via a Windows Installer MSI (Microsoft Software Installation) package file. The Windows Installer Service is the standard method for installing and uninstalling software on Windows XP. It keeps track of all of the components that need to be installed for a particular program to run and ensures that any files that are shared by programs are not removed when one of those programs is uninstalled. The Error 1719 is an indication that some Windows Installer Service files are missing or have become damaged. Solution:
The first thing to try is re-registering Windows Installer in the Windows registry. Make sure that no other programs are running and then click Start, Run, type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK. Next, click Start, Run, type misexec /regserver in the Open field, and click OK. Restart your computer and try installing or uninstalling again.

If you’re still getting the error message, the next step is to try reinstalling the Windows Installer files. In order to do this, you’ll first need to rename the existing files.

First, click Start, Run, and type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK.

In My Computer, click Search and locate the following three files: msi.dll, msiexec.exe, and msihnd.dll. They are hidden files so you’ll need to select Search Hidden Files And Folders under More Advanced Options. When you’ve found the files, rename them, by removing the .dll and .exe extensions and replacing them with an .old extension(for example msi.dll becomes msi.old).

Once you’ve renamed the files, WinXP will automatically replace them with a new copy from the dllcache (a hidden folder where copies of important system files are kept in case you mistakenly delete or rename critical system files). Restart your computer and try to install or uninstall the program again.

Finally, if neither of the above processes corrects the problem, boot into Safe Mode, and go through the above steps again, first re-registering and then reinstalling.
