Whenever I attempted an install setup is automatically closed in task manager. I think some error occurs in registry but I don't have any registry cleaner. Please advise me of a free registry cleaner

And.... what is SEP? –  slhck Jun 28 '12 at 14:36
    
Are you refering to Symantec Endpoint Protection? –  Dave M Jun 28 '12 at 14:51
    
The simple solution is to reinstall Windows XP. –  Ramhound Jun 28 '12 at 15:01
    
possible duplicate of Windows registry and system cleaner applications? –  Synetech Jun 28 '12 at 15:04

If SEP is in fact Symantec Endpoint Protection, there is a possible issue that can cause this.

SEP Tech Support has a number of references. This is one that I had on hand:

  • Open Regedit
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
  • On the right hand side, delete the value PendingFileRenameOperations
  • Run the install without rebooting the PC

In some cases you may need to copy the installer locally if trying to install from a network location. Not always an issue but seemed to be in some cases.
