Tech Alert: Resolve those pesky Microsoft Installer errors

Don't you hate it when you keep getting those annoying error messages when trying to install/uninstall a program?

I've found a lot of it stems from a corrupted windows installer, and can easily be fixed by running the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.

Microsoft Summary:
Microsoft has updated the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. With the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility, you can remove a program's Windows Installer configuration information. You may want to remove the Windows Installer configuration information for your program if you experience installation (Setup) problems. For example, you may have to remove a program's Windows Installer configuration information if you have installation problems when you try to add (or remove) a component of your program that was not included when you first installed your program.
