Windows 2003 server crashing in verfier.dll after recent updates

  1. I am having problems with Windows 2003 server after some recent automatic
    updates, and the problems are normally resulting in a crash in "verifier.dll".

    I noticed that automatic update shows an error when installing "Microsoft
    ..NET Framework 1.0 Service Pack 3, English Version". When I tried to install
    this after downloading, following error is reported:

    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.

    I looked at properties of "Windows installer service", it is set to manual
    and running under local account. I also noticed that the service started and
    stopped when i executed NDP1.0sp3-KB867461-X86-Enu.exe (that installs the
    above service pack).

    Any pointers to resolve the crash ?

    I would like to avoiding re-installing complete OS..

    thanks,
    Anand
