Many Windows users have complained that they encounter system freezes, security problems and a sluggish system due to corrupted Windows system files. The problems are usually accompanied by an error code. If you also encounter an error code, this blog will help you fix it.

We have researched this particular problem by looking at various user reviews and trying different recovery strategies that are often recommended by other affected users who have already fixed this problem. It turns out that there are several different scenarios underlying this particular error.

Unauthorized SMB file transfer: it turns out that a common scenario causing this particular problem is to disable an important policy for SMB file transfer. If this scenario applies, the solution to the problem is to open the local group policy editor and enable the local network startup policy.

Conditional error in a temporary folder: according to several affected users, this problem may have been caused by a conditional error. In this case, you may be able to solve the problem by starting the computer in safe mode and deleting the contents of the Temp folder to clear the conditional error.

Damaged system files: this behavior can also be caused by corrupted system files. In some cases, this error occurs because your operating system cannot keep track of the correct location of the files you are trying to open. If this is the case, you may be able to fix the error by running some utilities capable of handling corrupted system files (SFC and DISM).

Third-party intervention: it is also possible that a recently forced process or service is preventing the operating system from installing InstallShield. If this scenario applies, you can resolve the problem by using System Restore to restore your computer to the state it was in when it was not.

Damage to the underlying operating system: in rare cases, traditional means cannot solve this problem. If SFC and DISM cannot solve the problem, the only option is to reset all operating system components through a process such as reinstallation or recovery.

Enable the local network startup policy

We recommend that you select “Always wait to start the network when starting the computer and log in using the local policy setting” before you do anything. To do this, proceed as described above.

Perform an SFC scan
