      Have a Windows XP machine, have been receiving notices that Adobe Reader has updates - when try to run, gives following message:


      Update Failed

      The Windows Installer Service 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 personnel for assistance.

      Details (clicking on this link goes to:  http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/852/cpsid_85258.html  which does not address the issue.


      Have re-downloaded Windows Installer - tried rebooting.  Have tried steps set forth in the able link and still does not run.

      Any Ideas?
