It seems that something on your computer is blocking Second Copy to create entries into Windows Registry. Please login as the administrator. Then disable all anti-virus, anti-spyware, and security software from your computer. Then install Second Copy again.
Alternatively, you can edit Windows registry as follows:
1. Use "Regedit" from the "Run" command on the "Start" menu
2. Go to the following registry key:
Then add the following String Value:
Value Name: Second Copy
Value Data: "C:\Program Files\SecCopy\SecCopy.exe"
This error means that second copy is unable to write into the following registry key:
The user may not have permission to write to this key. The system administrator or some antivirus software may be preventing access to this key. The entry in this key is only to tell Windows to start Second Copy next time the user logs in.
If this can not be fixed, as a workaround, add the following section to the profiles.dat file to turn off autostart.
Then add a shortcut to the All Programs | Startup group to run Second Copy to achieve the same effect.
