For me, this seemed to be an issue with the PRD.INI.SIGNATURE file not being present in turbotax's 32bit folder. Typically this will be created during the install process... UNLESS it can't get access to the machine's crypto keys.
SOLUTION: Go here (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817754/en-us) and follow the directions under "Assign the Everyone Group Appropriate Permissions to the Folder".

    Forgot to mention, once you follow those instructions you need to re-install the software for the signature file to be generated.

Getting error messages when trying to load the cd on my computer running windows xp. error message is 1334 and avg firewall comes out with a trojan virus. Is my cd bad, can it be replaced? I have been...


Hello sharon! My name is Kandi and I am an Expert with Fixya and also an Employee of Intuit. I troubleshoot TurboTax and supervise agents who handle customer service calls. I am very familiar with the error that you are talking about and it has nothing to do with your TurboTax disk. In order to install your disk, you need to remove your AVG virus software and reinstall it later when your finished filing your taxes. There is a problem with the older versions of AVG thinking that TurboTax is a virus and it will block the installation of the program. Go to your control panel, and remove AVG completely. Reboot your pc. Run disk cleanup (Start, programs, system tools & click on disk cleanup) and check all available boxes when asked. Then run disk defrag (located in the same place as disk cleanup as noted above). Then put your TurboTax disk back in your pc and try to install again. If you cannot get the disk to install, you can reach us for customer support by going to www.turbotax.intuit.com. Click on the support link and then move all the way down almost to the bottom of the page and look for the box on the right side that says "Contact us". Choose the option that best describes your problem and it will forward you to your choice of contact method (we have chat email and phone service all available at no charge to you). We are open from 5am until 9pm pst.

Prd.ini,startup error every time I try to run Turbo tax 2010 Business.


For me, this seemed to be an issue with the PRD.INI.SIGNATURE file not being present in turbotax's 32bit folder. Typically this will be created during the install process... UNLESS it can't get access to the machine's crypto keys.

SOLUTION: Go here (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817754/en-us) and follow the directions under "Assign the Everyone Group Appropriate Permissions to the Folder". After you've followed those instructions, re-install the software to generate the signature file and it should run without problem.

Misssing partmgr file how can I load this thanks


To resolve this issue, start the computer from the Windows XP CD, start the Recovery Console, and then use the Bootcfg.exe tool to rebuild the Boot.ini file. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Configure the computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For information about how to do this, see your computer documentation, or contact your computer manufacturer.
  2. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
  3. When you receive the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
  4. When you receive the "Welcome to Setup" message, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  5. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you have to use from the Recovery Console.
  6. When you are prompted, type the administrator password, and then press ENTER.
  7. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /list, and then press ENTER. The entries in your current Boot.ini file appear on the screen.
  8. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER. This command scans the hard disks of the computer for Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT installations, and then displays the results. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to add the Windows installations to the Boot.ini file. For example, follow these steps to add a Windows XP installation to the Boot.ini file:
    1. When you receive a message that is similar to the following message, press Y: Total Identified Windows Installs: 1

      [1] C:\Windows
      Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)
    2. You receive a message that is similar to the following message: Enter Load Identifier This is the name of the operating system. When you receive this message, type the name of your operating system, and then press ENTER. This is either Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.
    3. You receive a message that is similar to the following: Enter OS Load options When you receive this message, type /fastdetect, and then press ENTER.

      Note The instructions that appear on your screen may be different, depending on the configuration of your computer.
  9. Type exit, and then press ENTER to quit Recovery Console. Your computer restarts, and the updated boot list appears when you receive the "Please select the operating system to start" message.
