I have been getting this error just about every time I try to remove a program. This time I tried to remove PC-Cillin and get the same error " Error 1606 could not access network location. % user profile %\recent\."
I have tried solutions that I googled and worked in the registry, but nothing works. I really need help with this. Bruce
Hi, I took a chance and took out a line in the registry. "Current user\software\microsoft\windows\current version\explore\user shell folders". I took out the line "Recent reg_sz %userprofile%\recent"
I was then able to remove the program without that error. The error message said " cannot find access network location %userprofile%\recent" That is the reason I did not remove that item to start with. Now that it is gone it works. I don't know where that line comes from. A year ago I had a similar problem removing HP software. I just removed the Recent at the end and it worked. Maybe you can tell me what that line in the registry does?Bruce
