How can i solve lp5 code error of my pc?


After researching what this code may mean there seems to be some kind of .exe modification done with some sort of software a game or demo software you may have loaded either knowing or not knowing this. Remove your latest demo software's after this happened. Kids are notorious for getting this sort of thing on the parents computers. When they are searching for games or other free software or freeware to download.
I think it is a software issue from a previous download. Remove any software that you may have installed before the error occurred. Another thing I would do if this was me is download CCleaner it is a great cleaner program that will assist with registry errors and remove program errors as well.
Also you may want to download Spybot Search and Destroy as well I use both of these freeware programs they remove add ware and spy ware, mail ware etc off of your machine automatically. John

Error 1402.Setup cannot open the registry kaey. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{7EA9A8FA-F5D2-49E1-99E8-C26EE07FCEEB}\LocalServer32.


The first thing you should do to fix this error is - if you're using Windows 98 or 2000 - to use the 'registry checker' facility. This is done by loading up the "Run Console" with CTRL + R and then typing "registry checker". If the registry is intact then this will not be a problem. On later versions of Windows, you should use a 'registry cleaner' program to perform this task.

If you have XP, Vista or Windows 7, you should first download a registry cleaner from the Internet and let that scan your system. It will look for any registry errors on your PC and then fix them, which should fix the 1402 error in the process. To use one of these, you need to download a registry scanner program and then let it scan your PC. It will identify all the damaged parts of Windows and should fix them. And if one of these registry errors is causing the 1402 error then a quick restart after the registry scan should enable you to install Office or the program you wanted.

If that method did not work, you should try using a different user account, or creating a new user account, to install the program onto. It's often the case that user accounts will become corrupted for whatever reason, blocking access to the registry. This causes the 1402 error because it means that the program cannot access the files and settings it needs to create when it's being installed. You should try creating a new administrator account and then installing the program on that.

Fliptoast will not go away! I have deleted it from every file location that I could find and the recycle bin, but it persists to reappear on my desktop. Also an 'application install' box appears with it...


I had the same problem when I tried to uninstall, so I went to my control panel, programs then uninstall a program, right clicked on flip toast and clicked on change, then it gives you options to remove or to change, click remove then it will ask to run something allow it then it will remove it from your computer.

I cannot remove "The Weather Channel" from my system because "INSTALL.LOG" is missing. How can I correct this problem?


First try to uninstall it using a force uninstaller program like handy uninstaller (click here to download handy uninstaller) [open the link, click "Click here to start download"]. Install it and run the program, all the installed programs could be uninstall using this small program. If you can't still uninstall it, delete the program from the handy uninstaller's lists and open your C; drive folder, then "Program Files" and delete the folder "The Weather channel". After the folder has been deleted, download this, (click here), and install it, run the program and click "Registry", then click "Scan for issues", wait for few seconds and again click "Fix selected issues", and "No", again "Fix all selected issues", then "Ok", and close the program. Now restart your computer, the weather channel should be cleared from your system by now. Not a trace of the program will be available on your system including the registry entries. After you are done, you can uninstall both the programs you've just installed.

The second program (ccleaner) is a very effective tool to clean your system and registry entries, you can run the Cleaner by clicking the "Cleaner" > "Run Cleaner" button.

If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.


Thanks for using FixYa.

Error R6002 floating point not loaded


Causes of Runtime Error R6002
Several causes exist behind this error. One of the most prominent ones is a broken link. This link apart from causing the run time error 06002 can also produce other errors like the computer not responding to any instruction at times. If a software has not been properly installed it can also produce such errors. Apart from that, use of internet without any anti-virus software can make your computer applications get infected with spyware and viruses. Such viruses can produce missing links inside your registry causing such errors.


Why are these errors caused? Many computer users are just not aware of the reasons resulting in these errors and what are the solutions to get rid of these errors. Remember, these errors can be solved very simply, and they are not going to cost you money. Usually many people exercise the option of getting professional technicians to resolve these problems. But this is not necessary. Through following the simple procedures suggested below you will be able to eliminate the error r6002.
If you take time and start noticing, you will find that the runtime errors are due to corrupted or damaged registry. You must know that the registry is the most importance place which is a storehouse of all the data, about both the software and hardware installed in the PC. When you uninstall software or remove a device there may be some traces of such actions left in the registry and manually it will be impossible to remove them. You should be having knowledge of computers to do this, since it is not advisable to access the registry without this knowledge and manually delete these files. A wrong move can result in damaging the PC irreversibly.
Therefore the only method to fix the runtime error r6002, along with many other errors, you should use the registry cleaner. With a registry cleaner you can repair the runtime error r6002 all by yourself, without seeking help of technician. This way you can save money and time, and you will also know the action to be taken next time when you encounter such errors.
Using the registry cleaner should be optimized with the antivirus cleaner, and if you program in such a manner that both the virus scanning and registry cleaner can take place simultaneously, for which purpose you should schedule these activities on the computer, and ensure that at that particular time the computer is switched on, without your botheration of checking them, they will do their job on their own, leaving you to attend to your work.

My AVG is conflicting with my installing Kaspersky.


you might not have uninstalled AVG .instead you could have deleted the AVG folder.
AVg components are still there in the registry.if you didnt uninstall it ,install AVG once more and uninstall it manually.
if its not working remove AVG components from registry
here are the instrucions:
To remove the AVG registry entries, open Registry Editor (Start-> Run-> Regedit). In the registry editor, navigate to the entries mentioned below,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG6INSTALL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AVG\Avg8

Right click on these entries and then delete them. If you are not comfortable about deleting registry entries, you can use a free registry cleaner. If you are using a 64 bit machine, then these are the entries to be removed.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG6INSTALL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AVG\Avg8


Once these entries are removed, Kaspersky installation will be completed normally. Alternatively you can also use the AVG cleaner or Kaspersky removal tool for AVG8.
