    I have Windows Vista 32-bit and downloaded the cleanup utility from
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/290301. Once the download is
    complete I double click the program and instantly I get an error message that
    reads:

    Script: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp\IXP000.TMP\StartMsi.vbs
    Line: 17
    Char: 1
    Error: Permission denied
    Code: 800A0046
    Source: Microsoft VBCScript runtime error

    I really have no idea what this mean, and need some help. If there is no
    solution to my problem, are there any similar utilities I can download?

  3. Hi Doe,

    Install the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility as administrator. To do so, right-click the setup file (msicuu2.exe) and choose Run as Administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
