I'm on windows 7 64 bit, i'm using the admin accouunt, i try to install some programs, but can't, i troubleshooted the error that i got, and turned out that windows installer service is stopped, i tried to start it, it says
windows installer service could not be started because its disabled or it has no enabled devices associated with it. Error 1058
How to fix it?
Note that the laptop has an expired bitdefender installed on it. I don't know if it's causing the problem or not, i just thought it was worth mentioning since i had many problems with misconfigured or expired antiviruses before.
MSIServer could not be started as well, and i tried to
run as administrator
The laptop is not mine, i'm just trying to fix it
