Hello,
I keep getting error1721 popping up. It started after my wife tried to download the software for a Karaoke machine she uses at work. It looks like she encountered some problems. It pops up instead of the screen saver or when starting some programs. I have tried the fix it with MS #891985 where you reregister the windows installer service and run the system file checker to no avail. When I try to remove it through add and remove programs I get fatal error during installation. The problem does not hurt anything but it is very annoying. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After some searching I found a solution to this problem.Microsoft has a windows installer clean-up utility. It is in the support/knowledge base section. The # is 290301. It works great and is sinple to use.
