Why are you using Spydoctor? did you know that CCleaner is free, and does the same thing pretty much?? Just another option instead of Spydoctor... you might try that instead of trying to download spydoctor, if you haven't downloaded it, then you shouldn't have a virus in your computer, use your Virus program ie: McAfee, or Norton, to can your computer for Viruses or trojans, it will tell you if there is a problem... sometimes those type of programs are big problems themselves.. or it might not be compatible with Windows Vista Ultimate. 32bit or 64bit.

Over time the size of the Windows registry begins to increase when there is an increase in the daily computing. Windows registry is a very important part of the Windows where the information about each program is stored in the form of very sensitive codes. A little disturbance in these codes can make a program useless and cause it to freeze and crash too often. The same is the case with the Adobe and other programs in our computer.
The registry errors in the computer not only make programs to malfunction but they also cause computer to slow down. What happens is that there gathers a lot of junk stuff in the computer. The invalid registry keys start to conflict with the valid ones and thus increase the load on computer.
There are various versions of the Adobe problem on computer. Most common among these is that the Adobe Acrobat crashes on the web browsers whenever you try to open pdf files through different web sites. If this is the case you can try changing the version of your Adobe. Also you can try changing the settings in the Adobe program to disallow it to open pdf files in the browser.

Check the size of Random Access Memory (RAM) in your computer. Its small size could be the reason for this problem as many of today's software need large amount of memory to operate in smooth manner. Additional RAM will also increase the efficiency of your computing particularly for gaming.

I am trying to download Adobe Reader and get Error 1606... Help!!


by chance did you just download IE 8. This version is known to cause problems with Vista. First I would suggest if you have to uninstall it and reinstall version 7. If that doesn't fix the problem try this:

Click Start, and then click Run.
* In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
* Locate and then click the following registry key:
* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
* In the right pane of Registry Editor, double-click Common Administrative Tools.
* In the Value data box , type the following line, and then click OK:
* %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools
* On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
* Restart the computer.

Cannot delete ESET folder from Program files. the program already uninstalled but left this folder in my Program files folder. error message: "You need permission to perform this action.'' OS - Vista...


Apparently MS in their infinite wisdom decided that in vista they would take the power away from the user and remove the administrator from the equation.
So no matter how many thing your try in the user accounts you will not get full admin rights.
but here is a reg hack that worked for me real well. I am running windows vista home basic

Click Start and Run type in regedit and enter
your now at the registry editor.
click and expand HKEYLOCALMACHINE
go down and click SOFTWARE
click MICROSOFT
click WINDOWS
click CURRENTVERSION
click POLICIES
click SYSTEM
you will see the registry entries to the right
right click in the white area and select new DWORD
Name it "EnableLinkedConnections" and enter
Right Click on EnableLinkedConnections and choose MODIFY change the Data Value to "1"
Save and exit Registry Editor
Reboot your computer and try deleting the folder you wanted to again.

WARNING:
Using this reg edit you are changing your registry and could develop problems if you don't do it correctly. Be Warned and do some research prior if you need to understand registry editor.
