I am not offering any cures for this since an event viewer may or may not mean there is something to be fixed. However if one wants to connect that with another symptom or issue then together you have more to work the symptom with.
1. www.google.com on the eventid and number.
2. Read the replies at www.eventid.net. Yes the links only work for members but you can read what article number to research at http://support.microsoft.com and manually look it up.
Was reading the suggestions on how to speed up computer and someone suggested a look at event viewer. I did this and found a warning message, under applications, that repeated itself. General info follows: Source: MsiInstaller, Event ID: 1001 and another one Event ID: 1004. Feature ''Mailbox''. The resource 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\installShield\UpdateService\' does not exist. Don't know what this is. Looked at msconfig, startup tab, didn't see anything regarding mailbox or install shield. When I looked at 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER, etc, saw Name: AB Default, Type: REG_SZ, Data: Value not set. Seems as thou it keeps looking for a resolution since all the while I'm on the computer it keeps trying to resolve. Must be over a hundred lines now, for just today.
Any ideas on how to resolve. Maybe, delete "Install Shield" folder???
Win XP, SP2. No other problems, computer working fine.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
