  • Restore to a System Restore point prior to using the cleaner. 

    Few here will recommend ever using a registry cleaner.  It is an old habit from Win 95 days when saving a few kilobytes by compacting the registry actually meant something.  But that was the DOS-based Windows days.  Such usage in the NT-based Windows days is not helpful.  The entries that get cleaned are unused entries that don't interfere anyway.  The registry is a database and unused records make no difference.  Registry cleaners are not repair tools.  Just cleaners.

    Interesting error message that - 'Path not found'  - this usually means that the Software Protection Service has been messed with
     
    In addition to Colin's advice, please check the following details :-
     
    1) In the Services management console, please check that the Software Protection Service is enabled, and set to Automatic (delayed Start) - and that the file location is C:\Windows\System32\sppsvc.exe
    2) Check that the file sppsvc.exe actually exists in that location.

  • Thanks for the insights.  This happened several months ago.  I won't go into the reasons I ran AVG PC Tuneup. It may not even be related, just coincidence.  I just now am dealing with trying to get this issue fixed as I am not getting updates that I need.  First thing I did was a try a restore point.  For whatever reason there were none.  I will deal with that later but thanks for throwing it out as an option.  Noel - the file appears to be in the System32 directory.  When I go to the Services Mangement console I see that the service is stopped - all settings are as you suggest they shold be.  When I try to start the service it brings back an error message Error 3: The system cannnot find the path specified.  The Log on tab is set to "This Account - Network Service"  Not sure what that should be set to.  The registry under Local Settings has this path -  

    @%SystemRoot%\system32\sppsvc.exe,-100

    There are other areas of the registry that have this path -

    %windir%\system32\sppsvc.exe

    I know about enough to be dangerous with the registry but these appear to be correct.  There is likely some small thing that is causing this.  Thanks for any assistance in sorting this out.

    Let's leave the registry alone for the moment  - there are ways of doing what we need to without directly touching it, I hope :)
     
    Please open a Command Prompt window and use the following commands....
     
    sc qc sppsvc
    sc qprivs sppsvc
    sc qsidtype sppsvc
    sc sdshow sppsvc
     
    copy and paste the results into your response.

    Interesting - there are two significant changes from what I'd consider normal there.
     
    Possibly the easiest way to deal with the problem is going to be to remove the service completely and then reinstall it.
     
    Because this does things outside the remit of this forum - and because I don't want to spread it around too much yet (I've only done this in testing, and with two other clients) I'd rather not post instructions in public.
    If you're prepared to take the (hopefully minimal) risk, then please email me at ngsATcrashfixpcDOTcoDOTuk (make the obvious changes) an we'll proceed off-forum.
    If you'd rather go through MS Support, then that's fine by me.

  • Thanks. I sent you an email to the address mentioned.  Let me know if you did not receive.  Both Microsoft and Dell support were useless, Microsoft more so than Dell - at least Dell tried to resolve it.  Microsoft simply said "Nothing we can do," "Call Dell."  I already did and they said to restore fro the factory defaults.  MS then said then do that....urrrrrgggghhhh.  I am not certain why they have Win 7 only able to completely reinstall and wipe out your hard drive.  XP could simply rewrite the system files if there was a problem and leave your data intact. 

    So if you have a solution that might work I will go with it as I am going to lose the hard drive anyway and will have to go through the restore of all my data.  If this keeps me from that then great - I'll take the risk.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Win 7  can also rewrite the  files under the same conditions that XP could - it's simply not advertised as well :(
     
    Did you not get the two emails I sent you?

    The issue is still in process - a simple reinstall of the SPPSVC did not work  - and there appear to be other issues as well.
    Stand by for updates :)

    SPPSVC reinstalled, and the VSS reinstalled appears to have fixed it - but I've not had confirmation  (or denial) from the OP :(
