Default Help installing Foxit

Hi Guys, Can you give me little help please.
I am trying to install Foxit PDF Reader. The download from Foxit is ok, but when I try to install it I get The following message
'Internal Error: Failed to expand shell folder constant 'userappdata'. '

Can someone please tell me what I need do from here. Sorry if this is a bit basic to you guys, but I will appreciate the help.

Try this.
Quote:
Click on “Start-Run, type “regedit” (without the quotes)
Navigate to this registry path:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows --> Current Version --> Explorer --> User Shell Folders
Clear the key: Recent (right mouse click on the key/folder, choose “Delete”)
Close the Registry Editor and restart the computer.
Internal Error: Failed to expand shell folder constant - Microsoft Community

Thanks BK_123. I'm not confident enough to go into the registry so I have someone coming over to talk me through your instructions. Thanks for your help, I'll let you know how it goes.

That's a fair call as anything can go disastrously wrong in there and if you don't backup then you could be in some trouble :\
