Error 1304 Hi, last time you helpted me , I hope this time too.Anything I try to install will bring we a message: "Error 1304. Error writing to file:C:Programs Files....exe Verify that you have access to that directory." Resently I cleaned registry after McAfee, because I couldn't install any antivirus after deleting it. After cleaning everything turned out good. I installed RegCure, Steganos Internet Security, the whole pack. And I started getting akk kinds of pop ups without using internet, Every time I restart laptop comes message: "Windows can not find file services.exe. Go to run.. search... and check if you spelled it right." And then come pop ups again, just a a nitemare. I never changed any name, I just don't know what happened. I still have RegCure on my laptop and I just used it. I like the program. But the problem is still there. Tanya

Not sure what u mean...i am a novice and i know i deleted files like gateway restore mangement and others

Your first step will be backup your important files. Don't write anything to your disk, before you do that. Every file is not deleted, it has just replace first letter with special sign (mark for deleted). If you don't write to disk, special programs can recover it (You need undelete tool program). To backup your important files, you can use live-linux DVD (Mint-linux is good). Write iso image from Mint web page with burning software to DVD, put into DVD and start computer. After that you can put memory stick and backup files from disk to stick. After that you can try to recover Windows (press F8 button when computer start, and going to "Safe mode with networking") You can go to ESET (Nod32) and download off-line tools for viruses cleaning. If you are sure that you have not viruses, you can try to recover Windows. When you are press F8, you have solution for choose previous state of Windows. Be careful, it is last step, and it will change Windows to before state. Windows will be like in the time when you install first time. If this is not good enough, you can only reinstall Windows. From Mint DVD, you can install Mint linux like backup multiboot solution. It will not have viruses problem. I suggest Mint, because I have Musical studio on that OS, and it look like Windows (It is based on Ubuntu linux). Good luck! If you need more information, just ask... I write lot of possibility because your short question.

Error stating COULD NOT open INSTALL.LOG file

Hi there.
The reason you get that message is because the uninstaller has become corrupt.
You have to manually delete the program from program files on c drive and also from all programs in the start menu.
Download and install CCleaner to get rid of any residual files or registry entries from the computer.

Get CCleaner here >>>>>

Please post back if you need anymore help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Can not download any programs

The windows backup feature does not back up any installed programs , it would only backup up your data files , but no exe files. But you are not able to install a fresh copy of the programs over the internet and from the cd.
Try installing these programs from in safe mode of windows . To start the computer you need to press the F8 key a couple of times before windows starts up.
If the same is not working you need to redo the operating system once again
