    Yes I am logged in as administrator.

    I do not know if this is related, but I also cannot delete files from my boot drive, but I can from by secondary drive. I can move some of the files, but not delete them.

    Thanks,

    There is a bad dose of Virtumondo going around that removes adminstrator privilegdes.

    What antivirus and antispyware scanners do you use?

Error 1402.Setup cannot open the registry kaey. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{7EA9A8FA-F5D2-49E1-99E8-C26EE07FCEEB}\LocalServer32.


The first thing you should do to fix this error is - if you're using Windows 98 or 2000 - to use the 'registry checker' facility. This is done by loading up the "Run Console" with CTRL + R and then typing "registry checker". If the registry is intact then this will not be a problem. On later versions of Windows, you should use a 'registry cleaner' program to perform this task.

If you have XP, Vista or Windows 7, you should first download a registry cleaner from the Internet and let that scan your system. It will look for any registry errors on your PC and then fix them, which should fix the 1402 error in the process. To use one of these, you need to download a registry scanner program and then let it scan your PC. It will identify all the damaged parts of Windows and should fix them. And if one of these registry errors is causing the 1402 error then a quick restart after the registry scan should enable you to install Office or the program you wanted.

If that method did not work, you should try using a different user account, or creating a new user account, to install the program onto. It's often the case that user accounts will become corrupted for whatever reason, blocking access to the registry. This causes the 1402 error because it means that the program cannot access the files and settings it needs to create when it's being installed. You should try creating a new administrator account and then installing the program on that.

f63627f.png

Those users running genuine version of Windows 7 provided with their hardware platform reported that immediately after log on they were presented with following error message. “Windows is not genuine. Your computer might not be running a counterfeit copy of Windows. 0×80070005.”
Some other symptoms of associated with this issue are,
The computer desktop background is black, and you receive the following error message on the bottom right corner of the screen:
“This copy of Windows is not genuine”
You receive the following error message when you view the System Properties: (Control Panel / System and Security / System)
“You must activate today. Activate Windows now”
If you try to use slmgr.vbs /dlv to view the licensing status, you receive the following message:
Error: 0×80070005 Access denied: the requested action requires elevated privileges
Microsoft is fully aware of this issue and provided following explanation for the issue,
There is a lack of permissions in the registry key HKU\S-1-5-20. The Network Service account must have full control and read permissions over that registry key.
This situation may be the result of applying a Plug and Play Group Policy object (GPO).
To resolve this issue, you can either disable the policy setting (Method A), or edit the permissions to provide the Licensing Service the required permissions (Method B).
Method A: Disable the Plug and Play Policy

1. Determine the source of the policy . To do this, follow these steps:
a. On the client experiencing the Activation error, run the Resultant Set of Policy wizard by clicking Start, Run and entering rsop.msc as the command.
b. Visit the following location:
Computer Configuration / Policies / Windows Settings /Security Settings / System Services /
If the Plug and Play service is configured through a Group Policy setting, you see it here with settings other than Not Defined. Additionally, you can see which Group Policy is applying this setting.
2. Disable the Group Policy settings and force the Group Policy to be reapplied.
a. Edit the Group Policy that is identified in Step 1 and change the setting to “Not Defined.” Or, follow the section below to add the required permissions for the Network Service account.
b. Force the Group Policy setting to reapply: gpupdate /force (a restart of the client is sometimes required)
Method B: Edit the permissions of the Group Policy:

1. Open the Group Policy that is identified in Method A, Step 1 above, and open the corresponding Group Policy setting.
2. Click the Edit Security button, and then click the Advanced button.
3. In the Advanced Security Settings for Plug and Play window click Add and then add the SERVICE account. Then, click OK
4. Select the following permissions in the Allow section and then click OK:
Query template, Query status, Enumerate dependents, Interrogate, User-defined control, Read permissions
Note: The Previous rights are the minimum required permissions.
5. Run gpupdate /force after you apply the previous permissions to the Group Policy setting.
6. Verify that the appropriate permissions are applied with the following command:
sc sdshow plugplay
The following are the rights applied to the Plug and Play service in SDDL:
D:(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;SY)
(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)
(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;IU)
(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;SU)
S:(AU;FA;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;WD)
(A;;CC LC SW LO CR RC ;;;SU is an Access Control Entry (ACE) that allows the following rights to “SU” (SDDL_SERVICE – Service logon user)
A: Access Allowed
CC: Create Child
LC: List Children
SW: Self Write
LO: List Object
CR: Control Access
RC: Read Control
SU: Service Logon User
Note: If there are no GPO’s in place, then another activity may have changed the default registry permissions. To work around this issue, perform the following steps:
1. On the computer that is out of tolerance, start Registry Editor.
2. Right-click the registry key HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20, and select Permissions…
3. If the NETWORK SERVICE is not present, click Add…
4. In Enter the object names to select type Network Service and then click Check Names and OK.
5. Select the NETWORK SERVICE and Grant Full Control and Read permissions.
6. Restart the computer.
7. After the restart, the system may require activation. Complete the activation.

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.

Can't run downloaded programs, open user accts,or some services.


check to see if your on the administrator account. it could be something on your computer preventing you from using doing anything like that or could be the local policies that have changed. Try saving the downloaded programs onto the desktop and then just go to the desktop and try to run it from there

Can't edit registry on Vista 64 bit


Hi there. With Vista, even though you may have an administrator account, some actions require you to go through an "extra channel", so to speak. This is to add extra security to your system from outside interference.

What you should try:

Click on your Start Menu.
At the bottom, under All Programs, type regedit. Do NOT hit enter.
At the top, it should display the regedit program.
Right-click the regedit program and then select Run as Administrator.
It should now let you edit.

Let me know how it goes

Error 1721


Try the following regardless of the software as this is the common error message provided by Microsoft. Of course this won't rule out either a corrupt installer or incompatibility's
  1. Disable/Configure any anti-spyware or anti-virus software on your system during installation process. For example: Spybot Search and Destroy Program or Norton Anti-Virus
  2. Check to see if any spyware or adware is installed on your system blocking the completion of install process.
  3. Check to see if you find any unwanted entry in Add/Remove Programs or Internet Explorer - Add/On's section (Tools - Internet Options - Programs -> Manage Add On's). If you found one, remove/disable this entry.
  4. On Windows Vista, disable UAC (User Access Control) feature for your account
