Default system windows installer?

Just today i got back from school and well i goto install alcohol 120% and it says

"The windows installers ervice could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running windows in safe mode, or if the windows installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personell for assistance."

And i have restarted my computer a couple of times and tried different files and it still says the same thing?

lol, it indeed helped him, but you should have explained briefly on what you told him to do and why it fixed his problems. So anyone else who comes along can learn from it
