SOURCE: Windows Installer issues with Desktop Maestro

Your issue is a permission error in your registry with the files associations trying to be written at install. I had the EXACT same issue with Acrobat. Search the internet for "Acrobat Installer Issues". There is a link at the abode fourms site to Download a program to reset the entire registry permissions. As you will NOT be able to do this, Windows will tell you, "you do not have permission to view the permissions. Although you do NOT have Acrobat problems the issue is IDENTICAL.

SOURCE: Can't uninstall Weather Channel Desktop

Two things to try:

1) See if this works from WC site:
11. I seem to be unable to uninstall Desktop Weather from my computer. What can I do?


This is a known issue with the product, and will be resolved in a forthcoming release. Copying the UNWISE.EXE from the Framework folder to the Desktop Weather folder will resolve this issue. The steps are as followed:

Go to Start, Programs, Accessories, Windows Explorer.
In the left scroll window of Windows Explorer click the + next to My Computer, then click on the + next to C: drive to expand the view.
Scroll down that menu until you find the Program Files Folder.
Double click on the Program Files folder to expand the view.
Scroll down that menu to The Weather Channel FW folder and double click on it to expand the view.
Double click on the Framework folder to display the contents.
Right mouse click on the icon that says "UNWISE.EXE" on the pop-up menu click on COPY.
Go to the tool bar on the window and click the Back button.
In that window right mouse click on the "Desktop Weather" folder and in the pop-up menu click on PASTE.

From that point you will be able to proceed as normal with the uninstall
Hope this works for you.


2) Use MS unistall utility:

Suddenly, my 500GB Seagate external hard drive couldn't mount on my iMac. It was working fine till yesterday. I connected them to the Mac USD port, and the light in the seagate is blinking... Any


I can only comment generically:

I would try to uninstall the drive on the OS. Then re-start the computer. After the re-start, connect the drive and see if the drive re-installs itself.

If the error persists, then the drive is indicating failure. To absolutely verify if it has failed, take the drive to a store where there are MAC computers and try the drive on one of their computers to see if it works.

A continuous flashing LED on most devices where the LED does not normally continuously flash is an indication of a failure of the device. Some devices will flash an error code when designed to do so, and if possible.

C:/Progam Files/blocktards/unins000.dat what is this error and how do i fix it


Hello crouch8323,
Welcome to FixYa.Com!
Unins000.dat is a files that if used by Blocktards' uninstaller to properly uninstall Blocktards off of your Desktop. If your are trying to uninstall Blocktards and you are getting an error message, I recommend that you uninstall Blocktards from the Control Panel's Add & Remove Program (for Windows XP) or Programs & Features (for VISTA or 7). If you still have the same error message, you can also try uninstalling Blocktards by going to the Start Menu, All Programs, Blocktards, and click Uninstall. If these steps give you the same error message, you may need to use Blocktards installer to uninstall the game, see if running the installer gives you the option to modify, remove or repair. And if all else fails you can always use a 3rd party uninstaller software like the option found in CCleaner.

Realtek is the audio driver in most cases. So, by uninstalling it, you have uninstalled the audio driver. You need to re-install it. Here is a link to download the driver.

Just click on run:http://biblprog.us.10gb.ru/drivers/realtek/WDM_R262.exe You might also want to install the codecs for the realtek high definition audio from the link: http://download.cnet.com/Realtek-High-Definition-Audio-Codec-Windows-Vista-Windows-7-32-bit/3000-2120_4-10788600.html If you wanna try something new, go for SRS Audio Sandbox.

This is a legitimate program not malware. You said you tried to "delete" it. Do you mean "uninstall" it through the windows uninstall?
