    Hello SART, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The tutorial below may be able to help you enable Registry Editor again. You will need to be signed in as an administrator though.

    Regedit - Enable or Disable

    Brink, on page one, you posted a .reg file to merge and fix this issue.

    I can't thank you enough. I have been beating my head against the wall for two weeks. Searching for different key word combo's. Today I tried a different approach and BINGO.

    Problem solved, now I can check for updates and get some restore points going.

    Again, Huge Thank you.

    same problem


    I recently came across the same problem. I followed your link, took the correct steps, ect... I went to reinstall quickbooks on my laptop and i am given an error prompt Code 0x80240017 ( i am also told my windows module installer service is not available on this computer) this is a prompt for .net framework which i knew was required for quickbooks. in short does the fix u recommended for the update error clash with letting me download certain windows services. my laptop is a hp 15 ts notebook pc if that helps

    I am having the same issue with my settings, do i still do the same thing? I am not really sure what you mean by "merge the .reg file "
    This is how my settings look
