Parsing error 0xC00CE556
I have a HP laptop dv6700 which came with Vista. Last Dec, '09 I upgraded it to Windows 7 Ultimate. It has been working fine up until 6 weeks to 2 months ago and now I get the parsing error when I try to open certain programs: TurboTax 2009, Family Tree Maker 2010, mobile update my PDA (HP) and others I believe. I haven't tried every program.
I have tried a TurboTax Utility, Framework cleanup utility, other utilities I can't even remember (sorry) and last night I reinstalled the upgrade all of it to no avail. I still get the parsing errors and the programs still do not open otherwise the machine works fine.
Needless to say, I am at a loss as to what to do. I can't format the disk and reinstall since its an upgrade and I would have to reinstall Vista and then upgrade to 7. I am not even sure the machine came with the Vista disk though I probably have it somewhere. For example, the error message will be as below, though the program name on the top line will be different, everything else is the same:
___________________________________________________________________________ _____________
TurboTax.exe - Configuration parser error

Error parsing
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\config\machine.config

Parser returned error 0xC00CE556

Help.

Well, I tried a whole bunch of things, but ended up doing a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate. In doing so, I eliminated the HP crapware that came with Vista and now what I have put back, works. It took waaaay to much time, but mama is now happy and what makes mama happy makes me happy.
Thanks for listening.
