Sys Info, Software Environment, Win Error Reporting.

by phattdaddy / February 23, 2004 9:58 AM PST

Running XP IE/OE6 1.2G 265M/SDRam 40M H/D with NAV Pest Patrol, Popthis Pro,Registry Mech.
Log in Win error reporting shows continuous string of errors and warnings:-thus (sic)
MsiInstaller Detection of Product.
{E7298FD5-1386-11D5-8D6c-0050DAD32D95} second string reads thus- Unexpected or Missing Value.
This is repeated in the event viewer coming in a string of three:- Error-Warning-Warning.
The first two as [name: 'package name'"] in key HKU\S\1-5-21 2939153371-18531 19545-2805738029-1003\software\microsoft\installer\products\
5DF8927E68315D11D8C60005AD3DD259\Source list'

Both logs go back to Feb 3rd (had installed Cumulative Security Patch IE6ServPk 1 KB832894 did an uninstal to check if this was problem and it was not) Every time I go onto net a whole new string of errors and warnings come up. (Dare I ask if this is a norm for MS)
Has any one out there got a fix or is it one of those things best left alone. Problem is that I do not really know how long this has been going on as log is from Feb 3 only

1. For your information only, please read the article "A Windows Installer Package That Is Installed with Group Policy Does Not Restart the Computer (Q811996)."

2. Perhaps it would be to your advantage if you can identify and provide any and all information concerning the CLSID - {E7298FD5-1386-11D5-8D6c-0050DAD32D95}.

3. The article [Q308427] states that an "event" is any significant occurrence in the system or in a program that requires users to be notified or an entry be added to one of three logs. The Event Log Service records application, security, and system events in Event Viewer. With the event logs in Event Viewer, users can obtain information about hardware, software, and system components, and monitor security events on a local or remote computer. Event logs can help identify and diagnose the source of current system problems, or help predict potential system problems.

Note: Is the information already furnished from the log?

4. When asking for help to troubleshoot a computer-related problem, please be sure to include such items as a list of major programs installed.

Thanks Bill, the omniprescient Texas Ranger to the rescue again. Lots of food for thought in your reply and some lateral thinking required by myself. Article Q308427 opens a whole new can of worms where I assumed that the log entries were sufficient information "How wrong could I be?". Did you notice that the sys/info on the CLSID is almost a mirror image of the Event log info?
I dont wish to admit defeat but after kicking XP around the town square over night I find that everything in XP is working smoothly. No hang ups or dithering, all programmes answer to their call so maybe, just before XP has a complete hissy fit, I will leave well alone. Thanks for your assistance Bill, much appreciated. I suspected for some time that you may have been the Cursorcowboy the style gave you away.
Thanks again from down under.
