Registry Error


Recommended Posts

I'm working on a friend's PC. The brand is unfamiliar to me (EMachines), W7 operating system.. Brought it home and booted up, but no way I was getting connected to go on line. It boots up fine, but I'm thinking some kind of virus got in. I try and update, but it refuses to complete all updates. I'm getting error codes 80246005 and MFC 90.dll.

I tried to run a registry cleaner Auslogics and without success. Is it possible that the Hard Drive is shot and there's no getting it back? Also tried an System Restore and it wouldn't take.

I tried this before I saw your post.


I went to my computer and installed CCleaner, put it on a disk and dragged it onto the other computer. I tried to run it and this is what I got. The specified path does not exist check path and try again They suggest a path (ending with .exe). The file is reading c:\program files\ccleaner\ccleaner64.exe

If it already ends with .exe how can I make it recognize it?

For some reason I cannot get this computer connected to the Internet. I think if I could get connected to the Internet I may be able to go further. I have been going back and forth with the Hard Wire between my PC and this one. I tried to connect a wire less adapter I have, but I cannot get it to show up.

I'm going to let this project go. Worked on it all weekend and as much as I hate to say it...I failed! I was able to run that Repair program (and I thank you). After it finished it said that there are files that were missing and files that were were corrupt. It said to try running the program again. I think it probably would have turned out the same so I'm just going to let it go.

Thanks again for your help.
