:tazz: :) Previous installation of Mcafee security programs has become corrupt due to a "back dating" of registry files a few weeks ago. The system will not recogize the software but will not allowme to re-install it.
Error messages are usually the same:

An error has occured in the script on this page
line 298
error : object required: 'gobjReg'
code: 0
url mcp"//c:\mca9360.tmp\vsoins.ui::default.htm

have also rec'd message with
line 542char 9 error: object required:'objLog'
code 0
url: mcp://c:\windows\temp\mca91c1.tmp\mpsins.ui::appinst.htm

mcappins - usually is the program that "quits responding" after downloading the files.

Have gone through internet setting s and cleaing out history and regisrty files with Mcafee
After every session with them they assure me that it will now work ....well it doesn't
Any help would be greatly appreciated

This will rebuild rather than restore the registry and also replace missing or corrupt system files

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

When Windows has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98 CD then reboot.

When it has loaded to the desktop, click start, programmes accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then run disc defragmenter from system tools

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete.

Run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection (without an internet connection if applicable) from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

(Skip this if you do not connect to the internet with this PC)After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
