Greetings,

(Source of this answer - MSKB Q21768

This problem occurs if your computer is infected with the Win95.cih virus.

You can remove the virus by obtaining the latest version of an anti-virus
program and deleting and then reinstalling the Windows Installer files. To do
this, use the appropriate method for your operating system.

NOTE: Do not attempt the steps in this section if you are running Microsoft
Windows 2000 Professional or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), because
the Windows Installer files are part of the operating system for these two
products.

For Microsoft Windows 95 and Microsoft Windows 98:

1. On the Start menu, click Shut Down.

2. Select "Restart in MS-DOS mode", and click OK.
3. Change to the \Windows\System folder. For example, type "cd windows\system"
(without the quotation marks) and press ENTER.

4. Rename the following files:

Msi.dll
Msiexec.exe
Msihnd.dll

You can rename these files by using the Ren command. For example, "ren msi.dll
msi.old" renames the Msi.dll file to Msi.old.

5. Type "Win" (without the quotation marks) and press ENTER. This starts
Windows.

6. Double-click Instmsi.exe in the \Msi folder on the root of the Office 2000
CD.

For Microsoft Windows NT 4.0:

1. Stop the Windows Installer service.

- Double-click the Services control panel.
- Select the Windows Installer service in the list of services, and then
click Stop.
- Click Yes to the prompt to confirm whether you want to stop the service.
- Click Close.

2. On the Start menu, point to Programs, and then click Command Prompt.

3. Change to the \Winnt\System32 folder. For example, type "cd winnt\system32"
(without the quotation marks) and press ENTER.

4. Rename the following files:

Msi.dll
Msiexec.exe
Msihnd.dll

You can rename these files by using the Ren command. For example, "ren msi.dll
msi.old" renames the Msi.dll file to Msi.old.

5. Type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press ENTER.

6. Double-click Instmsiw.exe in the \Msi folder on the root of the Office 2000
CD.

Good luck,

Maxwell
