Windows 7: Error 1606 Seagate Manager Install/Uninstall

Error 1606 Seagate Manager Install/Uninstall

I am having a huge problem. I really need some help on this, every other source I've looked for for help has not worked, and I really, really, really don't want to re-install Windows 7. Please, ANY help would be appreciated.

I use Seagate Manager software for backing up my files to an external hard drive. When I went to click on the "Custom Backup" utility today, it gave me a "paramter not accessible" error.

I then went to reinstall the Seagate Manager software. But when I went to uninstall it, it keeps giving me an "Error 1606: Could Not Access Network Location %PUBLIC%\Desktop\"

I have tried doing everything I can think of. I have followed instructions from people including but not limited to:

1. Deleting all the Seagate files in Program Files. They are no longer there, but the problem still persists.
2. Changing some registry values, although I haven't changed much and the problem still persists.
3. I have followed all the instructions on the Microsoft site for fixing this problem, including running their automated "Fix Me" tool, or whatever it's called. That hasn't worked either.
4. I have also followed the instructions of several different uninstalling utilities including CCleaner. None have worked.

Here is a screenshot of the error:



Please...I repeat PLEASE help me with this. I simply do not have the time to be reinstalling Windows and all my other programs because of a stupid error that probably has a really simple fix. PLEASE, PLEASE help.

Thank you.

If the only thing you are trying to do is remove and re-install the software we can help, but after the other mods you made chances are really good it wont help.

I am assuming you dont have a backup. Do you have a win 7 dvd?/

In that case I'll just go ahead and re-install. I was hoping I wouldn't have to, but if the changes are too drastic then I'll just have to go ahead.

Thanks anyway though :)
