I've read the KB articles for troubleshooting WI problems, but they have been
of no help. I'm running WinXP Pro (SP-2) with all updates. Whenever something
needs Installer, I get some variant of:

"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 turned on the log and all of the error messages are essentially the same:

0.821: 2005/03/14 13:37:49.115 (local)
0.821: c:\0b74de5c0472670217e7c882\UPDATE\update.exe (version 5.5.31.0)
0.861: Service Pack started with following command line:
1.082: CheckSystem: ServicePack version Mismatch
1.082: DoInstallation: CheckSystem Failed: 0xf06b
1.112: Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this system
is newer than the update you are applying.

There is no need to install this update.
7.110: Message displayed to the user: Setup has detected that the Service
Pack version of this system
is newer than the update you are applying.

There is no need to install this update.
7.110: User Input: OK
7.110: Update.exe extended error code = 0xf06b
7.110: Update.exe return code was masked to 0x643 for MSI custom action
compliance.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your suggestions. I tried all of them to the letter, including
reinstalling MSI twice, but nothing has changed. I had the msi log turned on
while I was doing all of this and this is what was recorded:

Hi there, well that was my only thoughts, perhaps try the gurus on the Windows Update
site, they may come up with some more suggestions. Please state your OS and what
you've already tried to avoid duplication.

Windows Update newsgroup:
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.windowsupdate
or
