update failed error 80070643 and installer stops working faulting application msiexec.exe faulting module msi.dll

I am running windows 7 home premium.  The first error was a failure to update office 2007.  several attempts to fix the problem highlighted that windows installer has stopped working.  I have been into services and checked that it was on automatic and started, but nothing will install using msi.  the following is the log file from one of the failures.
