I am running Windows XP SP-3/system 32 & IE Vers 8 with Bitdefender Antivirus 2010 and Uniblue Registry Health software. Have tried installing the software from the disk & from Logitech's site for a Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 on two different Dell computers but keep getting "Error 1406. Could not write value ImagePath to key\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LVPrMon. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key or contact your support personnel." I am the Administrator for both computers and there is plenty of available disk space. I don't know if Uniblue Registry Health may be the problem (may have changed or deleted something during a scan). I have tried installing the software with Bitdefender turned On and OFF. I cannot find this topic anywhere on Bleepingcomputers. Can anyone assist with this problem?

I suggest:

1. Uninstalling the Uniblue product.

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

• Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable.

• Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry".

• Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

• The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". I think that you can see that now.

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone.

I further susggest/emphasize that you back up the registry before attempting any manual edits of such in order to deal with known problems and remedies. An excellent toof for such backup is ERUNT Registry Backup Tool - http://www.snapfiles.com/get/erunt.html.

2. Run either a repair install of XP...or run the sfc /scannow command to replace any missing/damaged system files.

3. Run the chkdsk /r command on the system partition.

4. Try the install.
