Help with Windows Installer

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am having problems with my Windows Installer and have been having this problem for about a week now, I was gone for the weekend sometime last week, I came home and found out my niece installed a pc game (I believe it was called VSide) then I noticed that after I unistalled the game off the pc I seen that in my Add/Remove Programs I didnt see hardly any of my programs that were installed and also noticed Windows Live Toolbar was installed and everytime I tried to uninstall it it would just pop up right back after restarting the pc and now I am having problems installing programs that I really need because I get this message:


But I have tried just about everything to fix this including going into the regedit and fixing it from there and still nothing, I know it has to be something simple but just dont know what it is. Here is a log of HiJackThis maybe there something in there that needs to be removed, Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
