Once I join a pc to Win 2003 Standard domain, I can no longer install software on XPSp3 pc ...MSI error.

I have a Win2K3 Standard domain, once I join a WinXpSp2/3 pc to the domain. I can no longer install any sofware that uses MSI Installer after reboot. The network connection icons adissapear after reboot... I have network access along with correct ip addresses but cannot install MS Office for example. If I disjoin the pc from domain and reboot, I can install apps that use MSI Installer with no problem. The network connection also reappear. Has anyone seen this before and/or have resolution.

I have tried to re register the msi installer and also verified that the path in the registry has the correct path. The servers network group policy settings have not been configured.

I get the following errors.

MSI log

1.This is most likely permission problem, try to either enable security audit of object access, or run regmon and filemon, and look for "access denied.

2.you can enable MSI installer logging. Refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314852/en-us.
Reregistering the MSIexec should take care of the issue as well, if something in MSI is broken

3.try suggestions 3-5 from http://support.microsoft.com/?id=319624

4.Look at this:

I have tried reinstalling and re registering the windows installer. Getting same error while the pc is a member of the domain. If I remove the pc from the domain, I have no problems with the windows installer.

The problem is at the dc.... I will try the enable security audit and run regmon and filemon. Any pointers on how to enable this feature and use regmon and filemon.

regmon and filemon are fairly self explanatory.  They allow you to do some great filters too.
