This error is caused by an Installation file that is called .msi or application is file that installs a program and it happen when that particular program is improperly installed. If you suspect such a software than you should remove it and to avoid such problems you should avoid other software running while installing a new software to be on the safe side.
Please take a backup of your Windows registry at first
To backup the registry go to Start>Run box or Search Programs and files> type Regedit. When the registry window opens click File>export and give the name to the file and select and remember the location and enter. This will take the back up of the registry.
Now obtain a good registry cleaning software. I recommend ReCure or registry Mechanic make sure the versions are the latest. One of the best Registry software is Uniblue Registry Booster. It takes registry backup automatically. These software should be able to fix your problem.
It is also recommended that you see the following link, This software can also make a difference to you

Good Luck!

I understood your problem the main thing is that behind your problem is that windows can not find the registery file for word 2007 or may be OFFICE2007.

After all the solution is that you have to install the software which repairs your registery files you can use the "Tune up utilities 2011" or Registry Cleaner or CC cleaner.

I hope you can do it easily...

Thank you for giving me opportunity to solve your problem.

Nntldr missing

NTDLR missing is the baseic directory that hold windows. You have lost this somehow, maybe a virus or similar.
What you now need to do, is obtain the Windows install CD, boot from it and allow it to get to the stage it looks for an existing copy of windows, perform a repair and reboot, this will retain all the files on the HDD

If this fails, then you will need to do a full install from scratch, as before, but the drive will need formatting and you will lose the files you have on the drive

(I suggest you see if you can borrow another computer, slave the hard drive to it and pull off the files you need before formatting it as decribed above)

Error code in windows vista 64 bit ''0xc00000e9 - windows failed to load because the system registery file is missing or corrupt''

If it is a system registry error, boot up in safe mode and run CHKDSK/F this may find errors on the hard drive. To do this press Start and type CHKDSK/F into search box then run it.
You may have to purchase a registry utility.

Running Windows XP Home, SP2, Thunderbird and the latest Firefox. Am getting the occasional error for True Vector Service when online and the application shuts down. I note that this is part of ZoneAlarm...

You can clear the registery files associated with this ZoneAlarm but if you do so you may happen to loos eyour internet connectivity altogether. My thought is that ZA is not at all harmfull so you try to install it again and you may evade this error. Sometimes it may slow down your computer but it can be recoverd by restarting the application. Rate me if it is helpful!!

My OS Windows 7 can not Update

The problem might be becoz of service pack of windows 7. Please uninstall the currently installed service-pack and then try to update Windows 7.

Its highly advisable to clean system registery using any good system registery tool like cCleaner.

Please call me for further clarification.
