  1. Error 1601 from Windows Installer in either adding or removing programs Windows 10 System


    I tried to remove older software on my Windows 10 system and received the error message that "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance." Also, when I attempted to remove an older version of tax software I received error code 1601.


    I have executed the notes about run msiexec.exe /unreg and run msiexec.exe /regserver then rebooted with not impact.


    What are all of the steps that can be taken?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 installing progs

    I decided to take the plunge and upgrade to windows 10 from 7. I used the Media Creation Tool from MS website. It took awhile, but I am finally running Windows 10 (12-14).

    I opened the new App & Program feature to remove programs that I no longer needed. Scrolling down the list, I was horrified! Apps that I didn't install somehow magically installed themselves. Two programs stood out: Facebook and Candy Crush Soda Saga. Both programs have those tale-tale icons that they came from Windows Store (which I've never even opened). The install date for both of them were on 12-26.

    Is this a common thing for Windows 10? Or is it because I did an upgrade and not a clean install?
