I think your are not the computer administrator....so you login as computer administrator and you will be given permission to access control panel to change system setting and to change the programs....also you can configure as an administrator the login features of other users...unless you become the computer administartor the private area(0x2 at line 2088999592) meant only for administrator will be aunaccesable for you...

Neither posting has helped although I greatly appreciate their time. I am the system administrator.

Do you get this error message only when trying to uninstall a specific program or all programs?  What file name does the error message mention?

kmenshouse: I get this when I try to even enter Add/Remove Windows Components.  The exact message is as follows:  "Setup was unable to open information file hide??{KOJKJ." The last bit after the word "hide" is all garbelled and I can't reprduce it.

Give this a shot...

1. Insert your WinXP CD
2. Go to Start > Run. Type in: expand D:\i386\tsoc.dl_ -r c:\windows\system32\setup
3. Hit OK
4. Reboot

If that still doesn't fix it, then run sfc /scannow from the command prompt.  Reboot and try again.

AnthonyP9618: I tried: expand D:\i386\tsoc.dl_ -r c:\windows\system32\setup and when I rebooted Windows installed some new hardware drivers.  Still have the same problem, so I am running sfc /scannow.  It has stopped a few times and won't proceed until I heit "retry" a couple of times.  Thanks for your time and I will keep you posted.

bbayley,

If you are having problems running sfc /scannow in Windows, I would try safe mode... It may make things go a bit quicker.
