When I try to install LibreOffice or any other program I get the common : "The windows installer service could not be accessed" error. I have tried many methods that have failed. I tried installing with CMD, but that failed too. Any help will be appreciated.

I had the same problem using LibreOffice v4.0.1.2. In my case there was Comodo Internet Security Suite recognizing installer as malicious software. To solve the problem I did:
1. Physically removed network cable for security reasons.
2. Disable all of Comodo features (right click on system tray Comodo icon and disable features).
3. Install LibreOffice software.
4. Plug in network cable.

1) Try to restart Windows.

2) Check in Windows Task Manager under tab Services if msiserver is in the list. If not in List click the Services... Button and see if it is disabled, set it to automatic.

This should solve it. You might also check if you have a virus!

Got another idea: Right-click the installer file and click on "Run as Administrator". Also for CMD. At least it solves a lot of problem on my Win7 box.
