XP Error Code : 0x80090006

Posted: February 9th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: howto | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

Suddenly this error appeared: “A problem is preventing Window from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error Code : 0x80090006”.

I have no idea why.

According to others what you can do one the followin:

  • Log into safe mode and re-register a couple of dlls:
    regsvr32 regwizc.dll
    regsvr32 licdll.dll
  • Fix C drive association by using regedit32:
    See KB914232
  • Reinstall or repair.

For only the third worked.

You can backup files by using Safe mode.

Remember,  backup your data often.

Later edit:

You should verify your XP license or for viruses/rootkits or, more general, malware.
