    Hi all

    I`m trying to reinstall the dual core cpu amd optimiser for my 4400 x2 cpu but as i go to install it i get this error when the istaller is trying to install the files.
    Error 1402.could not open key:
    Hkey_local_machine\software\Microsoft\windows\current version\run. verify that you have sufficiant access to that key. or contact your support personnel??????

    And when i run regedit and go directly to that key i get this error.

    I could be wrong, but it sounds like you are trying to do Administrator level maintenance with a normal login.

    Login as an Administrator, that should let you install new software/mess about with registry keys.

    That's just a guess. Are you sure you haven't just installed some random spyware instead?

    (Never install software you just browsed off the internet. Unless you like malware.)
