Try to download the program to your desktop and not the 'default' My Documents - Then try to open it from there -

The driver for this device requested a resource that Windows does not know how to handle. (Code 5)

Check in Control Panel for any drivers that need updating -

Thank You - :)

EDIT - Strange - I did not know the update was installed and it just automatically upgraded -
XP SP3

It will not install from the desktop
No Drivers need updating
What happened was that I tried to get the lastest updates using the updates tab
it started to install then stated that it was upgrading to the newest version.
Stopped installing then gave error message RegCreateKeyEx Failed; code 5
Access denied. Everything was fine until then

@ Jimmy -

Do you still have a copy of Malwarebytes showing in your Programs list or in your Documents area -
Also could you reply with your Anti Virus program and when it was last updated -

Thanks -
