read star trek's  message. Since we haven't made any changes to this computer, is it possible someone has hacked this computer?
These error codes are Windows HRESULT style return codes. Some of them map
to common error codes, while others are InstallShield specific. If you've
got Visual Studio C++, you can put the error code into the "Error Lookup"
dialog and find some of the codes.

Usually even the codes you can find as common code types are a result of
something particular to the installer happening.

Just doing a follow up on my problem - tried  star trek's suggestions, but did not find the the Cryptography folder.  

I ended up doing a Windows XP repair and it did the trick.
