I'm trying to install Quickbooks Pro 2010 on my windows xp sp3. When trying to install about 1/4 of the way through I get this error:
Error 1402: Could not open key

I tried the solutions listed here and nothing worked. I really don't want to have to reinstall windows, can anyone help me out?

You receive an error message when you install an Office program or open an Office program or document

How do I restore security settings to the default settings?

Have a look at the SubInAcl Command in this article.
