INSTALL.LOG ??

Hello...Starting a few weeks ago, I started getting pop-up windows saying ; '' INSTALL.LOG could not open file '' It usally happens when I try to open a file, any file, and when I try to uninstall a file and sometimes when I open my mail. What is this? Its really becoming a big problem. I tryed 3 different restore points and it did not help. Also, since this started happening, my log-on and log-off is extremely slow. It takes over 5 min. to log on or off and I have DSL. I contacted them and nothing is wrong on there end. Can you help me? I have a hp pavilion dv2000 notebook, not a dv2000t, but your list dosn't have this model listed. Thanks, Nancy

Hi

In case you have installed a new program uninstall that program and install it again . Also you can go to Start Menu>programs>Accessories>System Tools >system restore .
Note : Any new data saved can be lost
This will restore the system to previous settings and will work for sure .

Thanks

    It has occured because the last time you uninstalled a program/software it wasn't uninstalled properly thats why you are receiving this error and you need to delete the files by following this procedure :



    1. Open the directory where the program is installed. (Eg. For System Mechanic 5, By default, it is C:\Program Files\iolo\System Mechanic 5, if you have installed XP on C:\)
    2. You will see a file named "Install.log" in there.
    3. Move (cut and paste somewhere else) the "install.log" to say desktop.
    4. Now, double click the uninstaller (uninstall.exe or unwise.exe)
    5. It will ask you to open the installation log. Locate to the "install.log" file on your desktop.
    6. Now, uninstall will work fine and you can uninstall the program.



    Thanks

There are 2 reasons why you may see the "Could not open INSTALL.LOG file" error message when trying to uninstall the program:

1) Usually this problem arises when file named "install.log" is missing from program folder. This file contains information about what files were copied during installation and is required to uninstall the program automatically using "Add/Remove program" applet. The "install.log" file may get deleted by some "eager" disk cleanup software that delete all files having .log extension. If you open your program installation folder and see no "install.log" file there, then you can't automatically uninstall the program. Instead, just delete the program folder and it's group under Start | Programs. None of our major program install files outside program folder.

2) If the "install.log" file is in your program folder, then probably there is something wong with uninstall information in the registry. On that case just double-click on the "uninstall.exe" file that is on the same folder and uninstallation screen should appear. If running uninstall.exe displays the same "Could not open INSTALL.LOG file" error message, then you probably have older uninstall program and need to drag "install.log" over "uninstall.exe" with the mouse and release mouse button. Then uninstall.exe will be started and install.log filename is passed on command line as a parameter.

Here is how you do it without having to manually remove all the files and registry entry.

  • Navigate to program’s installation folder
  • Cut or move the INSTALL.LOG to somewhere else. eg: desktop or my documents. Reminder: Move the file, not copy.
  • Run the uninstaller and it will ask you to locate the INSTALL.LOG file.
  • Select the file you move earlier and voila the program uninstalled!

    A recently deleted program which wasn't un-installed successfully running in the background could be the cause of your pop-ups as well.

    START > RUN > and type "msconfig" (less the quotes).

    Click OK

    Then click the startup tab.

    Everything with a checkmark is slated to run when windows starts.

    De-select everything (except your antivirus program) and re-boot your computer.



    Windows Defender (free d/l from microsoft home), is also a good program for removing startup programs.



    Keep us posted!!

This sounds like a program in your startup is having difficulty finding a file. Does the error message give any further details?

1) select Start->Run
2) click Browse button
3) find unwise.exe in Yahoo! install folder (usually C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\unwise.exe), click OK in 'Browse' window
4) after that you should see in Run window the following:

"C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\unwise.exe"

5) edit this line, so it looks like:

"C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\unwise.exe" install.log

(after "the path" put the space and type install.log)

6) click OK in Run window

That should uninstall yahoo messenger.

ID error = 0


the issue is caused by a Microsoft Jet update. in c:\icwin310\backup directory you will find the files needed by icverify. Make a backup of the following files in c:\windows\system32 msjet35.dll
msjint35.dll
msjter35.dll
msrd2x35.dll
msxbse35.dll
msexcl35.dll
msltus35.dll
vbajet32.dll
vbar332.dll

Copy the files listed from the c:\icwin310\backup directory to c:\windows\system32 and your error should be no more.

PC crashes when i switch user


reboot to safe mode using f8 right before the windows logo screen at boot comes on. after on this, run a virus and spyware removal program. i recommend www.superantispyware.com for this.

this problem is mostlikely due to a virus or spyware. If all else fails, put your windows xp cd in and when this loads, select install windows then let it detect installed windows. select "repair" as your option for a repair reinstall, this will fix damaged or mising windows files.

Hello,
Borrow an installation Cd of your OS. Configur your computer to boot from CD.
Boot from CD, Choose (R) repair option. The recovery Console appears. Enter the number (1, 2 or other) that corresponds to the partition the system detected. If you see only one installation then you enter 1. You will then be asked to log in as administrator by supplying the password you entered whwn you installed.
When the C:\> prompt appears type
COPY [your_file_name] [SPACE BAR] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ [your_file_name]
After that Press [CTRL][ALT][DEL] to restart.

It should copy the missing file and you will be able to reboot.

Hope it helps

INSTALL.LOG ??


Can you open task manager ? When this msg come dont terminate it. Open task manager and watch which process is holding that error. Kill this process. Try to erase another file. If it happen again, you are attacked by a great virus. There is one solution without installing OS again. Scan your HDD with another PC which have a recently updated virus scanner. Keep informing.

This usually happens when your hard drive is getting full and Windows cannot increase the size of the swap file. Check your amount of free space on the system drive (usually c:).
