    you have downloaded some software that is not compatible with vista.This has
    happened to hundreds of people .The best solutin is to restore to a point
    before the software was installed(if known)or restore your pc/laptop to its
    factory condition a pain up the ass i know but this is the most effective way

    I had the same problem. I have a workaround if System Restore fails to
    correct this. For me, It even occured in Safe Mode.
    1. Make your way to starting Internet Explorer
    2. on the address bar type:"control panel"
    3. go to User Accounts...-> Add User account-> Create New "Admininstrator"
    4. Shut down manually if you have to and reboot and access the new Admin
    You will now have new account with all original programs still installed and
    access to old files via either:
    a. Internet exporer-> Address bar-> type: C:\users\ your old user account name
    b Start button-> computer-> C:\Users\ you old user account name.

    * You'll find here folders which will contain you old docs, downloads, etc
    from you old account.
