I am running windows xp professional with service pack 2, 

my problem is that after i download apache_2.2.4-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi and as an 
admin user I double click the installer, only to get this message:

The installation wizard was interrupted before Apache HTTP Server 2.2.4 could 
be completely installed.

Your system has not been modified. To complete installation at another time, 
please run setup again.

Please tell me how can i fix that problem ?

I have tried the following to no avail

Check permissions on the installation folder. Done. Everyone, SYSTEM, Users, 
Administrators and my account have Full rights. 
as per (http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/binaries/win32/TROUBLESHOOTING.html) 
by running the following command with Start -> Run... “MSIEXEC /i 
tried running another version of apache:  currently i have tried 
Disabled AntiVirus; no firewall, or other windows programs running. Tried over 
half a dozen times, reboots and all.
Made sure that window's IIS was uninstalled
tried runnning the setup from my C drive (i wonder how this worked for some 
user , didnt work me thou ) 
Try disabling my LAN network and try to end all processes that aint necessary
