Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Error 1001.InstallUtilLib.dll: Unknown error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was trying to install Windows Office Enterprise 2007 when I got this error message and since then I've noticed it on most all attempts to install anything or, to my horror, attempts to uninstall programs. I try to uninstall something and it will get to a certain point and then roll back then give that error message.

How can I fix this???

Hi Snaski.

It is some display/graphics related issue.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Let us see a screenshot of the furmark window, just before you close it.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Install the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only.
Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features3D Vision Control Driver

nvidia Update
(Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
Download 314.22 WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

Hello BleepingComputer, I am having a difficult time tracking down the cause of the failure of a program to re-install. the program is Wikitup dictionary. Previously, I have had problems with this program in the form of it not starting correctly; it uninstalls only with
difficulty. The problem now, however, is different. I am now receiving the following error message: Error 1001-On/AfterInstall event
handler of wikilon.installerHelper-value cannot be null> Parameter name: xml. I thought that the problem may be with Windows installer but I have been able to install other programs without any problems. The announcement of "value cannot be null" seems as though something
was changed somewhere; if it was, it was not by me as I would not know a line of computer code if it was in front of me. I've tried a restore point, tried retrieving the app from my back-up, tried downloading it from other (third-party) sites all to no avail. This program
works very well when it works and I consider it one of the best at what it does so giving up on it is not worth considering. I have had to
perform a complete system restore (wipe) of my computer in times past, and when I re-installed this app it always operates properly; it's
only when I have had to un-install and re-install it that this problem occurs. It's as though the program leaves some sort of marker on
my machine after an un-install that gets in the way of it's re-installation. Note-I have thought of ... Read more

Unable to edit query SQL when there is a where clause but no group by without getting the -1001 error. 

Example:  This query is fine. 
SELECT DISTINCT BB1.StudentID, Table43.Booking_date, Table43.Session
FROM BB1 INNER JOIN Table43 ON BB1.StudentID = Table43.StudentID
WHERE (((Table43.Session)="230"));
But if I simply enter the SQL editor (and don't even make a change), I can not save it without the Reserved -1001 error popup even if it was already saved as is earlier.  Apparently it needs notation like
SELECT DISTINCT [BB1].[StudentID], [Table43].[Booking_date], [Table43].[Session]
FROM BB1 INNER JOIN Table43 ON [BB1].[StudentID] = [Table43].[StudentID]
WHERE ((([Table43].[Session])="230"));
in order to be accepted. In particular the [] around the field before the FROM
SELECT DISTINCT [BB1].[StudentID], [Table43].[Booking_date], [Table43].Session
FROM BB1 INNER JOIN [Table43] ON BB1.[StudentID] = Table43.[StudentID]
WHERE ((([Table43].[Session])="230"));
is no good, but
SELECT DISTINCT [BB1].[StudentID], [Table43].[Booking_date], [Table43].[Session]
FROM BB1 INNER JOIN [Table43] ON BB1.[StudentID] = Table43.[StudentID]
WHERE ((([Table43].[Session])="230"));

I finally gave up as I was sick of having to keep logging back in after each reboot. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello, I could use some help with a blue screen issue, I've been having for a little while now, not sure how it happened or why but whenever I'm AFK from my computer for to long it gives me a blue screen crash with the error 0x0000001a (0x0000000000000031, 0xffffffa800aa60900,0xffffff8800d56700, 0xffffff8a0023351ac) page fault in non-paged area, I'm feeling that I should note also the the error number has changed recently but has been the same cause and result, if needed I'll post that to, also I'm rather techno illiterate so please keep it as simple as possible for me

Welcome to the forum,

It looks like IObit is causing it, there's only one dump but it gets the flag,

Hi all,

The laptop was working fine for 2 days, but today it started behaving weirdly when I tried connecting it to the LAN internet and it said "no network access" and "unidentified network".

Hi all and thanks for your help in advance. This problem is driving me nuts. Did a fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit on a Packardbell Easynote TE69, all was running fine for a while but then on shutdown/restart I would get a hang that would last for 5 minutes or so. When the system was turned back on I would occasionally see a BSOD flash up, every time after the hang I would get the "Your system has recovered from an unexpected shutdown message" with error code 0x0000009f. Googling has turned up little. I have found the same error codes in event viewer in relation to Bugcheck under event ID 1001. Driver Power State Failure pops up loads when searching and so does updating my Wi-fi driver which I have done but no change. The only other symptom is that my usb mouse only works intermittently, I have tried several new ones, but the problem remains. I have attached my minidump file. Any help would be awesome. Thank you.

Hi, a little background: I updated to Malwarebytes 2.0 premium on Sunday and on its first scan it found pum.hijack.start menu for a user in s-1-5-21 . . .. -1001. I have never been redirected, and my computer is a few years old so I know that the slowness might just be the age and the kaspersky and malwarebytes pro running together, but I was worried so i had some people look at it. I go to school right now and can't afford to pay for a professional so the IT guys there did a few scans and ran a few programs to clean any infections(you'll see there are a few left on my computer, not sure if I should get rid of them or not). Told me that they think I am fine, but because they left the programs on there, and the fact I'm OCD (admitted fault), I decided to see if I can make the PC more secure.

I just added some new components to my computer yesterday, including a motherboard, processor, memory and a hard-drive. I haven't had any problems so far, but for this error message;

Unknown CPU detected. BIOS update is required to unleash it's full power. CPU Temperture Over Heat.Click to expand...

I think this might be to do with either the motherboard or the processor. My processor is an Intel Core 2 Duo E5200 2.5GHz. My motherboard is an Asus P5B-VM SE. This problem seems to be mainly associated with Asus motherboards. I searched Google for any possible fixes, with the main one telling me to remove the silver stuff off the processor and fan (this came on the bottom of the Intel fan) and replace it with my own compound.

Any ideas?

Hello ,

what you need to do is erase the harddrive then do the reinstall , you can get a free program that you can create a bootable cd to do this with from here

(http://www.majorgeeks.com/Dariks_Boo...uke_d4596.html)

or you can download the tools to do this from the manufacturer of the harddrive

either way you will have to make the bootable cd

make sur you read the instruction on the way to use the program

then start your system then put in the cd / reboot to load the cd and then erase your drive

depending on the size of your dive this can take from 1 to 5 hrs

this will write the drive to zero's and make it as if it never had software install on it ( like new from the factory)

Let me start with analysis of this error.
http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php




If you are getting this error when trying to reinstall from your XP cd, then it sounds like you have a loose damaged or incorrect cable to either your cdrom or hard drive. I suggest replacing them both with quality 80 wire 40 pin IDE cables. It can also be caused by incorrect configuration if you have RAID or SATA drives.
Finally you may want to try with just one stick of RAM installed. If you have more than one now; you should try each in the slot nearest the processor all by itself until you rule out one of them being bad (If it works with one stick and not the other, you know the other is bad).

There is more information on possible causes of this error at ahuma ; but my first suspicion on seeing the image checksum mismatch is that the file in question has been replaced with something else, a trojan or virus.

I Googled the life out of it but haven't found any solution other than suggesting there could be a conflict between the PC and a Zip Disc drive but this machine never had one installed at any point!!

Can anybody assist here, I would be grateful for the help!! :)

A:[SOLVED] Help Installing XP - Unknown Hard Error

Did you disconnect all external peripherals except the monitor, keyboard and mouse, and be sure those are not USB, or wireless. Any internal USB card should also be removed.
