I recently upgraded my OS in order to solve registry issues retaining to the corrupted windows installer.

When I try to enable the Microsoft SE, it would not work. I went into the control panel (Add/remove programs) and removed it. So when i try to reinstall Microsoft SE, I am getting weird error (0x8004ff82).


I am not too familiar with the regedit, but i think the problem is a registry file....

Note: I have already tried MicrosoftFixit, and it did not help.

I had upgrade from windows 7 64-bit Home premium to windows 7 64-bit Home premium, because windows restore did not fix the issue....

It is a legit version, and i have already activated it...

This error is normally caused by a previous anti-virus program not being completely removed. You may need to download a uninstaller for your previous anti-virus program. Other causes are if your version of Windows is not genuine.

Try removing MSE and reinstalling.
