Windows 7: Error 1606 persistent for image backed up profile

Error 1606 persistent for image backed up profile

"Error 1606. Could not access network location %public%\Desktop\." when uninstalling a program:

I have a windows 7 x64 machine and just recently I started getting error 1606. I looked up the previous threads and followed instructions. They worked for others but not for me. I tried the Fix It patches but still my problem is not fixed. Just today I noticed the following:

My Op Sys was resurrected via an image that I had saved a month ago. If I try to uninstall any of the programs that came with the Image, I get error 1606. However, If I install a new program it will uninstall just fine.

Any clues?

Thanks!

Was this a Windows 7 backup image? If it was only made a month ago, could problems which caused you to reimage have already been present? I find that creeping corruption can begin right after install so keep a baseline image for cases like this.

You can try reimaging to see if it is a glitch with the operation or in the image itself. If this fail I would consider clean reinstalling following these steps to get a perfect baseline reinstall, then image it: Reinstalling Windows 7

Hi Gregrocker,

Yes it was the same exact operating system, Windows 7 x64. Thanks for the input However, this sucks that "clean install" is always the alibi for such software shortcomings.

Clean reinstall is my specialty here, not an alibi.

It is a fresh start which almost always runs like a brand new computer except better since most new computers are larded with bloatware.

What "software shortcomings" exactly do you suspect? I've not seen anything like this before in spite of the many drawbacks of Windows 7 backup imaging.
