    Hi,

    I keep getting this error but have performed ALL of the methods
    recommended at the Microsoft Knowledge Base shown below including all
    of the side links within it.

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315346

    Does anyone know of any other fixes that can help me out? I can't
    install or uninstall anything anymore.

    This happened right after installing Winamp 5.1 and then uninstalling
    it. I already checked their website and nothing is being reported.

    I'm running XP Pro with SP2 and all the critical updates.
    (Including Windows Installer V3.1 which I also uninstalled then
    reinstalled)

    Any and all help is most welcome and appreciated,

    I sure do hope I don't have to re-install XP again from Scratch.

    Tanner,

    Were you able to install/uninstall until the end of July ... do you have
    a UPS made by APC/PowerChute, specifically, PowerChute® Business Edition
    6.x ? http://727.apcc.com/
    If not, when did you uninstall WinAmp ?
