There are some windows programs that I can't access because my computer says that windows has stopped working then he says looking for a solution and then he says: restart windows. I can't access my programs and features to remove some programs I think may be worth. I can't access MY computer optison either.

Hi billdee,

(1) since when are you facing this problem?

(2) remember to make changes?

(3) what happens when you try to uninstall the program?

Method 1: Run the fixit available in the links below and check if that makes a difference-Worth to try
Difficulty of broken desktop shortcuts and common system maintenance tasks

Note: FixIt would attempt to recover bad sectors on the hard disk, in the course of this process there are chances of DATA loss from that particular area.

Method 2: If a Protection of resources Windows (WRP) file is missing or is damaged, Windows may not behave as expected. Auditor of file system (CFS) scan to fix all of the corrupted system files. To do this, follow the steps mentioned in the link below:

How to use the System File Checker tool to fix the system files missing or corrupted on Windows Vista or Windows 7


Method 3:  Put the computer to boot and then check if the problem persists

Follow step 1 in the link below,
How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

If everything works well after a clean boot, you can deduce that some third-party services are at the origin of the problem.

Continue with the remaining steps to pin-point on the third party service.

  • Windows Install Cleanup Tool error when you try to install it on Windows Vista Business

    After a failed installation of Adobe CS 4 on my Windows Vista Business 32-bit system, I am now unable to update or uninstall anything Adobe on my PC. I had read several forums, Adobe specifically, when users suggested to install and use the Windows Installer Clean up tool.  I have successfully used this app in the past with Windows XP, but when I try to install on my Vista box cleaning tool I am immediately presented with the error:

    Windows Script Host: There is no script engine for file extension ".vbs".

    Does anyone know a solution for this?  I tried hunting one down a few months ago, but could not find something that solved this problem.  Or are the users of Vista GROUND just when it comes to this cleanup tool? I want desperately to remove/repair my Adobe products (which work, but cannot be updated) without the need to make a nuclear weapon and to open and lose time reloading of each piece of software, to restore the profiles of boards, etc...

    Hello NMITGuy,

    The "partially encrypted" icon is not orange (it is grayed out), however, it is as if the icon displayed as 'clear' and if clicked reflects the 'partially encrypted message.

    I would like to add a password to secure my PC a little more by doing the following:
