Help me error message 7001 Game won't load

Could someone please help me. I am so frustrated.
Installed Madden NFL 08.

No problems with install. I am getting this error message when trying to load the game.

"A required security module cannot be activated. This program cannot be executed (7001)"

I have installed 2 different dvd drives and am still having the problem. I have done several
other troubleshooting tips and still no go.

Please help me.

  1. Found this and it worked for me...sort of after a little regedit

    Please open the registry editor (Start->Run->regedit) and move to the
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices\ area (by clicking on this
    folder, you will see all the entries on the right side). Look at the
    entries with an alpha designation (ie: \DosDevices\Letter_Here). You should
    see one of entries with letters with duplicate entries. If you delete the
    duplicate entry (right mouse click and choose 'Delete' from the choices),
    you should be able to exit RegEdit and launch your program.

    If the problem persists, please delete all REG_BINARY entries in this
    folder (only blue ones on the right side). Reboot your computer
    immediately, the entries will be re-established, and the game should start.

    I had to delete all my Reg-Binary entries...then it incorrectly named the drives so I had to go back into the registry and manually rename the drive letters. Which was just a matter of changing \DosDevices\D: to \DosDevices\E: and visa versa.
