Well, this problem signature doesn't really point at something particular.

So I would suggest that you try the following things.

If you're logged in as admin on a corporate domain, check if you can log in as local admin instead.

Check that you've installed all Windows updates.

Close all other programs running in the background.

Still doesn't work? Try to install PCC on another PC.

Hi,

I'm having the exact same problem on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. The suggestions you made didn't help.

Windows is up-to-date, on my husbands pc with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit same error.

Can't update my phone now since they don't have a pc companion for Mac either.

Re-downpladed 4 times from different locations, rebooted twice, disabled AV even downloaded the NewUI.dll manualy but no luck.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Try using Update Service instead. Check if your able to install that program and update your software.
