What is causing the “The description for Event ID ( … ) in Source ( …. ) cannot be found… “?
On Win XP Home SP2 I could not install IE 7 (installed to seemingly the end, then rolled back and had to restart). I did the following:
1. Referenced ME917925
2. Disabled virus and internet security for 1 hour.
3. Edited jpeg, gif and png registry entries for Administrator privileges as per the MS KB article.
4. Tried to reinstall but still received "Unwriteable key HKCR\mailto" and "Unwriteable key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto"
5. Googled "Unwriteable key HKCR\mailto" and found "Newsgroup Post"
6. Tried miket1024's suggestion (I was running under an administrator account. I had to login to the other administrator accounts to determine which one had the "mailto keys" access. Found it and edited permissions in registry successfully.
7. IE 7 installation succeeded.
