Adobe 8.0 Installation Error 1406

Yesterday I ran into an issue with installing Adobe 8.0 on a user's computer which was running Windows XP SP2. The installation error was 1406, access is denied. It pointed to certain keys in the registry which the installation program could not write to.

After checking the permissions on the registry keys that the error pointed to, I found out that the I was not set as the owner on these keys.

After changing the permissions on the registry keys (changing ownership), the program installation continued without a hitch.

Please note that to get the details on how to change the registry key permissions please refer to the Adobe forum that talks about the error 1406.

Restoring deleted emails from Outlook 2007

Recover deleted emails in Outlook 2007

Have you ever accidentally deleted an email that you needed and you didn’t know how to get it back? If you are using Microsoft Outlook 2007, there is a possibility that you can get that email back. Microsoft has a very easy way to see the emails that it can recover from the depths of your email.

Make sure you have Outlook 2007 open. On the main menu click “Tools” and click the “Recover Deleted Items” option.


The Recovery window will open and display all emails that can be recovered. Click on the email(s) that you want to recover and click the “Recover Selected Items” button (it’s the second button in the top menu).

Recover Window

All emails that you have selected will be put back in the original folder that you deleted them from. So if you deleted the item straight from your Inbox, the email will be put back in your Inbox.
