Using Avira Premium ver10, Mbam Pro, HitmanPro(on-demand) Outpost Pro ver7. No new software installed.

I do not know what to do to be free from this error. Not quite knowledgable in the tweaks for Windows 7 also as I am a new user.

Please help.

  1. You could try popping in your install DVD, and repairing 7.
    If it isn't too much trouble for you, you could just start from scratch.
  2. i would def. go w/ the repair.
    way easier to try, and you shouldn't loose any settings or anything
