    Re: can't install Office 2007 updates

    i'm not sure what the problem is but i also had this problem before and it was due to a damage windows installer so i suggest you try this

    - download
    - unzip the file to desktop
    - double click / right click and click merge
    - click yes if you have uac on
    - afterwards restart your computer

    information taken from - Error "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed" in Windows Vista - The Winhelponline Blog
