The error was faced by one of our readers who was irritated with the problem that whenever he tried to install or uninstall any program there comes an error message reading “Error 1606:Could not access network location 0\”
Well the fix is not that difficult but requires some Registry Tweaking so it would be better if you have a backup of your registry, but if you are confident enough then you can do it without that as well.
1. Type regedit in the Run box to open the registry editor.
2. Now navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Current Version -> Explorer -> User Shell Folders
3. Locate the key named “Recent” in the right side and delete it by right clicking on it.
4. Windows may require a restart.
The problem would have gone but if it hasn’t then have a look at these MS articles.
