Process Monitor Newbie RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows 7 machine that won't open any Office program.  It gives a message "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed".  The user had used System Restore so many times, that we no longer have a restore point, where this isn't occurring.  In addition, it doesn't appear to want to uninstall anything from the control panel and I have tried to install a backup exec agent and it fails.  

    I have run Process Monitor and am getting thousands of Path Not Found.  I am new to this utility and don't really know what I am looking for or where to go.  Normally, I would be up for format and reinstall at this point, since I have spent countless hours trying to resolve, but I can't get a backup of data files so I am reluctant to do the reinstall.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
