A couple of weeks ago, upon startup, a message was displayed to the effect that there was a problem with a registry file and that Windows had successfully replaced it with an alternative version. Running CHKDSK revealed that a corrupt attribute file had been deleted and replaced. All this was above my head, especially as I have never accessed the registry, nor done anything untoward. However, I assumed that any problem had been solved by Windows, so I thought no more about it.
However, one of my programs - Concise Oxford dictionary would not open as normal. It hangs for some time and then displays:-
"COD001OU caused a general production fault in module TWABTE.TBM at 0015.326D. Choose close. COD001OU will close."
I have tried to uninstall this program, but the Uninstall option falls to work. It does not even appear in ADD/REMOVE programs. If I try to reinstall, the same query is displayed. When I open the RUN option, displayed is "misc.services" which means nothing to me.
I cannot see anyway forward. I can't open, remove or reinstall the program. Does anyone have any ideas?
