Right-Click My Computer, click on Properties.
In the System Properties Window, click on Advanced Tab.
Now click on Environment Variables Button.
Look for USERPROFILE, tell me the value.
Type cmd. Press Enter. Tell me the path it opens with.

SMS_LOCAL_DIR_USER - C:\WINDOWS
Temp - C:\Documents and Settings\rmontilla1\Local Settings\Temp
TMP - C:\Documents and Settings\rmontilla1\Local Settings\Temp
When I ran the cmd it opened in C:\Documents and Settings\rmontilla1
Hope this is what you need.

Follow these steps:
Open Environment Variables Window as it old u before.
Under User Variables, click the New Button.
(Very Imp: Make sure click the New button which is on top and not the bottom one, the bottom one is for system variables).
In the newly opened New User Variable dialog, type USERPROFILE as
the variable name and its value is, C:\Documents and Settings\rmontilla1.
Now try installing ur software again.

Anyways I checked out the forum and started tinkering around with the registry. For Step 1, it turns out I was missing Common Administrative Tools in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders so I made a new one. As for the Common Administrative Tools in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders, everything checked out so I restarted my comp but still nothing would register in my recent document history...

Note: Ur antivirus may give a warning about the script, ignore it, and let the script run.

In the end I just ran regedit again and right click deleted 'Recent' found at:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows --> Current Version --> Explorer --> User Shell Folders
Didn't even need to restart. Just started the install for Alcohol 120% straight away and it ran without the error.
Hope it works for you as well.
