Another option is that even though you have administrator rights under your user account, you are not logging on as THE administrator. When you start the computer and are presented with the welcome screen (you DO get the welcome screen requiring password, right?), you need to press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice to bring up another screen which allows you to TYPE the word "Administrator" in the username and then either type the password for that account or just click OK (leaving the password blank). THIS will log you in as THE administrator, not just a user account with administrator rights. There is a HUGE difference between the two types of login and you need to be logged in as THE administrator to access registry keys.

If you do not see the Welcome screen when turning on the computer, you have not set a password for your user account (not very safe) and it will automatically log you in under your user account. To get to THE administrator account, you will need to boot up in Safe Mode.

If you are seeing this 1402 error for install and uninstall, there may be some corruption in your registry. If you were on XP, I would say run scanreg /fix to try and fix the registry,

    This Anti Virus Program (if you were downloading it From a web-site) or a Pop Window you may have just down loaded a Bot or Virus. The links that Eske gave you are great programs and they are free

Your firewall or antivirus program is blocking the program from editing the registry if you want to use the program you need to disable your security program for the duration of the setup.

    I would personally suggest the following better problems (In my personal opinion)



    www.avast.com - AVAST HOME register it and get a years lisence, thats free for home use.



    www.zonealarm.com Zonealarm basic firewall also free, for improved protection.



    http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.h... Spybot search and destroy, Highly recommended anti spyware / adaware program.

  • Ekse Sep 08, 2008

    I have been with computers for around 10 years now, actively. I have never heard or used the program you mentioned but I can see from the error that, another program is blocking it from writeing into the registry.

How do i get spyware off my computer? I keep being keylogged and am unsure how i have avg and norton scan daily could you please suggest a better anti spyware/malware


Although anti-spyware and anti-virus software are intended to protect your computer from advertisement pop-ups, slow performance and security threats, they can prevent some of your computer programs from running properly. This is especially true for anti-spyware software. This is why you may chose to disable them. If you disable either your anti-spyware and anti-virus software, take into consideration that you are making your computer more vulnerable to security threats like viruses, worms and trojan horses.
Disabling Anti-Spyware
  • 1Open the anti-spyware program on your computer. Sometimes there is an icon for the software located either on the desktop or in the toolbar on the lower right-hand corner of the computer, next to the clock. Double-click to open the software if it's on your desktop. Right-click on the icon if it's in the toolbar.
  • 2 Turn off the anti-spyware software by removing the check mark from the "on" button. If you have Ad-Watch Anti-Spyware, you will need to uncheck the word "active" and "automatic" to disable the software. If you are running SpyBot Tea Timer, click on "advanced mode" and then uncheck the teatimer.
  • 3 Click "yes" for the anti-spyware software to be disabled.

Can't install adobe reader 9.1 - Error 1402


Hai,

Error 1402 Could not open key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.
Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or
contact you support personnel.

They are using Windows XP Home edition. I fear that they
have one to many viruses/ spyware apps on the machine
already and it may just be time to re-install the OS, but
wanted to make sure this was not something that someone had
ran into before...

Thanks

Desktop and Task bar disappearing


You computer is infected by the spyware virus try to run in the safemode and download and install spyware doctor of pctools also the registry mechanic this two utilities is very helpful in term of spyware virus. But sometime if your computer infected by the UST.AVI virus you cannot install any program even the anti virus. The virus automatically close any program you install to prevent the anti virus to install in the system. If this happen the only way to salvage the files is reinstall the windows in the other directory then after you finished install windows. You can copy now the the files in the old directory copy of the windows your needed files. and delete the old windows directory permanently.
