Error when you open Add or remove programs: "failed to create value" At Line 451 how this can be corrected?

Once all updates completed, I now can't add remove programs to work.

I get the following in a box error message: "failed to create value"at line 451.

Someone knows how to fix this?

Hi ZebWebb,

  1. What service pack is installed on the computer?
  2. You have security software installed on the computer?

If you have recently installed Windows XP SP1 on the computer, then see the article and check if that helps.

Error when you open Add or remove programs: ' failed 'at line 410' of value creation.

If you have not installed Service Pack 1 of Windows XP on the computer recently then check if the problem persists in the safe mode and after return details.

    Looks like you may have a virus or other malware. Get your updated antivirus program and boot into Safe Mode. Note that some viruses can hide from your normal antivirus program, so you really need to scan in Safe Mode. To enter in Safe Mode when you turn on first, press F8 on every seconds until you get the menu, and then select Safe Mode. Then run a complete system scan.

    If that suits him fine. If this is not the case, use system restore to go back to an earlier date at the beginning of the problem. To run system restore, click Start-> programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> system restore. Click on the box that says show more restore points.

    You can check the corrupted system files. Open an administrator command prompt and run SFC if the above does not help. Click START, and then type sfc in the search box, right-click to SFC. EXE and click run as administrator. Then, from the command prompt type sfc/scannow.

    Finally if all else fails, you can look at the rather cryptic system event log. To make, click Start-> Control Panel-> administration-> event viewer tools. Once in Event Viewer system log-click and scroll entries looking for these "error" with indicator see if you can find guidance on where the problem may be.

    I hope this helps. Good luck.

  • I'm unable to open ' add or remove programs "-after previuosly deletion of multiple applications.

    I downloaded free TV and after a few seconds I started to receive several pop ups.  So I went into 'Add oir remove programs' and tried to delete only whatt I added indicating by date.  Now, I can not enter in «Add or remove prgrams.»  I get an error message indicating that I have no file required to open this file.

    Apparently, I removed something I shouldn't.

    Help, please.

    First of all, you can not rely or guardianship what add / remove programs tells you about the dates, time, last used, etc..

    For example, I use my MS Office every day, but the ARP says that it is rarely used and last used on 2010-10-10.

    Such things would work correctly if the installation programs would put enough correct information in the registry during the installation of applications, but most are not.  Even applications like MS Office Microsoft isn't much good.  Do not pay attention to this information.

    If you get an error message, you must validate exactly what the said error, think what ARP file is missing and tell us more about your system.

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    What you see you don't think you need to see?

    If the system works, what do you think might have changed since the last time it did not work properly?

    If the safety of MS Scanner could remove some data, I would not use it.  Why would you use something that might make you lose data?  I find it quite helpless though.

    If sfc/scannow solves your problem, I'll send you or your charitable organization preferred $100 Americans.

    You will not run sfc/scannow successfully anyway unless you have a XP installation CD authentic which corresponds to your Service Pack installation (most people don't).  The technical support engineers always seem to leave out this little nugget of information.
