That will open the registry editor. In the Registry Editor.. Browse to.... HKLocal machine/SYSTEM/SETUP/STATUS/ChildCompletion, and after highliting childcompletion,on the right hand side check for setup.exe. if the value is 1 change it to 3.(by double clicking on setup.exe and changing the value shown in the box). Then close the registry editor and then also close the black window.

Make sure that
(1) Your Computer is free of Viruses otherwise get a good anti virus update it and check and clean your computer.
(2) Take a good Registry cleaning software like RegCure, Registry booster etc and use it to clean the registry of your computer with bad links and other corrupt information of your Operating System.
These registry software are very basic and easy to use and I recommend it to be a must of all client PCs.
If you have problems in buying one try this freeware Registry cleaner.

(3)If this does not help then change your printer setup file it must be corrupt. You should attain a setup file for your printer from a different source or try your setup file which is giving an error, take it and try to install it on another computer if there is a similar error than the problem is definitely with the setup file.
On the contrary time if there is no error and setup installs smoothly on the other computer then your computer especially the Operating system(Like Windows XP, Vista and 7) require special attention your PC should be free of Viruses your Registry should be extremely neat and clean and you should be using good Registry software. There will many errors in your registry needed to be fixed by registry software but if your registry does not have the problem which the registry software will tell you.
In the most extreme cases upgrading or reinstalling your Operating System will dramatically show good results provided the setup file is not corrupt.

Good Luck!

Philips laptop has fatal error message - system

Hello Vixen,

Sorry about the problem.

I will try as much as possible to give you a detailed steps you can try.

And they are going to be two Options.

First options is this:

If you have a Windows Installations CD.

Insert it into your CDROM Drive, then when you put on your system,

Go into the system BIOS/Setup by pressing 'Del' key or any other key (e.g F10) required to enter setup, while the system is booting.

Now look for where you have Boot Sequence or Boot Order.

Select the CDROM to be the one where the system will boot from.

then follow the On-Screen instruction and select repair.

Next Option is if you don't have the Windows Installation CD.

Put on your Computer,

While it is booting, Keep tapping the F8 Key, and this will bring up the Menu where you will have to select the different options of booting.

First of all try out "Last Known Good Configuration".

If it doesn't work, then try booting into safe mode.

If it boots in Safe Mode, then click on start---> Accesories--->System tools---> then System restore. Then restore you system to an earlier time.

Now, If all that still doesn't work, then Select Safe mode Command prompt.

When you get to command prompt, type: chkdsk or chkdsk /p and press enter.

This will scan your system for errors and correct it.

If this does not work, type scanreg .

This will scan your systems registry for errors and fix it.

If Trying All these does not work, then Go back to Option 1.

Which means you will have to get a Windows Installation CD.

I am giving you all this trouble-shooting steps with the assumption that you are using Windows XP. (Because you did not specify your type of OS).

But In case you are using Windows Vista,

then under option 1, after inserting the CD, and booting from it,

just follow the on-screen instructions and select:

"Fix what is preventing my Windows to boot Properly" , under the options.

All these are the FULL trouble-shooting steps you will need to get your system working.

But if after trying all of them out it still does not work,

Then you will have to take them system to a good technician.

Kindly keep me posted and let me know how it goes.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Good luck

Unable to update my protection after uploading new 2009 Micro Trend Internet Security package using a 64-bit operating system. Error message advises to check my proxy settings. I've done that. System is...

this is the resolution i got from trend micro regarding this error. it worked for me, so i thought i should share: I have reviewed your case and I understand that you are getting an error message that says “Unable To Update Your Protection” when updating the Trend Micro Consumer Product. With regard to your concern, this problem happens if there’s a missing component in your computer’s Registry. Let us configure the registry of your computer using the Registry Editor of Windows. Refer to the following. 1. Click on the Start button or the Windows Orb Button. 2. Windows XP: Click on Run then type regedit on the text field then click on the OK button. Windows Vista: Type regedit on the Start Search above the Windows Orb button then press Enter key on your keyboard. And the Registry Editor window will appear. 3. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 4. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides SOFTWARE. 5. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides Microsoft. 6. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides Windows. 7. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides CurrentVersion. 8. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides Explorer. 9. Click on the Shell Folders. 10. Look for the Common Appdata entry on the right panel. If there’s a Common Appdata entry on the list: - Double click on the Common Appdata entry and the Edit String window will appear. - Windows XP: Type C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data on the text field under Value Data. Windows Vista: Type c:\ProgramData on the text field under Value Data. - Click on the OK button. If there’s no Common Appdata entry on the list: - Right click on an empty space and options will appear. - Click on New and options will appear. - Click on the String Value option. - Set the name to Common Appdata. - Double click on the Common Appdata entry and the Edit String window will appear. - Windows XP: Type C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data on the text field under Value Data. Windows Vista: Type c:\ProgramData on the text field under Value Data. - Click on the OK button. 11. Close the Registry Editor window. 12. Restart the computer for the changes to take effect. After doing the suggested solutions, you should now be able to update the program successfully.
