Installation Failure

When I try to install the firewall from c:\My Downloads I get the following error:

Error 1606. Could not access network location %USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

But when I open a command window %USERPROFILE% is set to Alan which is correct. I’ve tried moving the setup.exe file to various other locations (like …\Alan) but I always get the same error. I have had this problem with no other software package.

I am running XP SP2.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

It is a problem at the registry. Another member had the same problem after deleting some registry entries. Do you use a registry cleaner?

No. I have never used a registry cleaner on this PC.
