    Have you restarted the machine and tried updating Skype afterwards?

    Having the exact same problems. Very frustrating. Unable to install/update programs including Windows Updates, AVG. Also cannot uninstall programs. Hoping someone can recommend a fix!

    Checked Task Manager, but there are no programs running that needs "End Task".

    Then checked Administrator Tools --> Services --> Windows Installer --> Properties --> here I got stuck, supposed to change Startup Type from Manual to Disabled, then restart the computer; however, the dropdown menu for Startup Type does not function.
