    I tried the Repair Computer Command it tried for approx 45 seconds gave up. Said PC is unrepairable.So I had to look for other options. Like a Windows Recovery Disk.

Nope it will allow the computer to fix itself not data loss at all. I've had to do this many times before. just try it and tell me your situation when you are done.

Microsoft fsx when reinstalling comes with an error 1722 followed by an error 1603


OK. This is what you need to do.
1. Uninstall FSX completely the reboot.
2. Press CTRL + F and type in the search box "FSX"
3 Each entry that comes up should be deleted from the registry. Press F3 to continue searching. When no more appear, reboot and re-install ensuring that FSX CD's are clean. If you are not confident clearing registry entries, get a reputable registry cleaning program, but use it after you have uninstalled FSX. Good luck

This is a registry issue. Get yourself a good registry cleaning program, uninstall FSX, reboot the PC. Run teh reg cleaner, then reboot. Now you will be able to install FSX okay. Good luck

Hello

I've seen this often with XP and Vista. I'm posting the Microsoft instructions. Although this isn't always the cure, it is most of the time. Good Luck
  1. Click Start Collapse this imageExpand this image vistastartbutton.jpg, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

    Collapse this imageExpand this image securityshield.jpgIf you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
  2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
  3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
  5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
  6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
  7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
Note After you remove the UpperFilters registry entry and the LowerFilters registry entry, you may lose functionality in certain programs such as CD recording programs. In this scenario, you must reinstall any affected programs. If the problem recurs, contact the program vendor to determine whether an update is available for the program.

I keep getting a box that pops up say that consent for UI has stopped working.. I'm unable to uninstall programs on my laptop. I have vista.. how do I fix it?


hi,

This is a known problem in windows vista (it is actually a security feature)

You can do either of following:
1. Disable UserControl from control panel.
2. If above doesn't works then change the registry settings [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System --> EnableLUA = 0]
3. if this even doesn't works, then, reboot your pc in safe mode (continue press F8 number of times after finishing booting screen on reboot, you'll get safe mode) and disable User control from control panel.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

UNABLE TO UNINSTALL PROGRAM


you probably uninstaled it, but didn't remove it from the registry properly... try searching the registry on: Start > Run and type Regedit, and go to search, and type SmartBro... yuste delete those keys and reboot...

warning! backup your registry before you make any changes!
