    Default Another installation is already in progress - Windows 10

    I have upgraded from Windows 8 to windows 10 and installed Office 365.
    I cant load anymore programs as I get an error message saying - Another installation is already in progress.
    I have tried stopping windows installer and restarting it but it wont allow me to stop it.

    I have the same problem - after upgrading to Windows 10 I can't install any new applications.
    I get a message saying another installation is in progress even after restarting.
    I went to 'Services' but everything for the Windows Installer service there is disabled, including the button to stop it (I'd like to stop and start again).
    I tried going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows but cannot see Installer (I have a 64 bit machine).
    Any help appreciated, thanks.
