Error 1706 why? Running Windows XP Home, Office 2003, Quicken 2004, Earthlink TotalAccess
Have been pulling my hair out trying to help my senior citizen neighbor with Earthlink via Time Warner Cable running WiFi.
Worked well for months until we installed Quicken 2004 on it.
Then all of a sudden Earthlink Icons for taskpanl.exe AND the actual program itself would be deleted. This would cause a massive editing of the registry, hours of conversations to Earthlink and so on for reinstalls.
Had it perfect for the 3rd time yesterday. Tried every program under the sun. Rebooted all was well. I left his house.
Today the user went into Quicken from a cold boot. Made a few entries (no transmissions electronically with Quicken) and now is getting:
Error 1706 "Feature on network resources not available" (Note he has only one PC connected via WifI on HP Laptop"
Or he gets Error 1706 No valid source could be found.........install some .msi file and so on.... then at times he gets "The windows installer cannot continue"
In the system tray are running ONLY Spyware Stormer and Norton AutoProtect (AV version 2003). Was running Sygate Firewall Pro but we thought that was causing the problem. XP firewall is not on. There is no virus or trojan ot spyware-have run TDS3, Norton and online scanners. Also run AdAware and Spybot.
He usually gets his error when clicking on teh icon for Earthlink TaskPanel or Earthlink Mail
Thanks so much.
