I keep getting this computer message as an error?

error 1606 could not access network location appdata
Please, do not say “Go to microsoft help and support article” this doesn’t work. I’ve tried
do not give me any registry cleaners. They do not work.

I am simply looking for an answer that explains IN BASIC ENGLISH not computer jargon that helps me with my problem and the solution. thanks.

Answer:

As the error message is saying, it is having problem with appdata.
Check if appdata is set to %USERPROFILE%\Application Data

1) click start
2) click Run
3) type: regedit
4) press enter
5) in the registry editor, then look in the left pane, expand “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” by pressing the + sign next to it
6) look for “Software” in it and expand it using the + sign.
7) Similarly, continue exploring Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ User Shell Folders
“Microsoft” then “Windows” … when you reach “User Shell Folders” select it 8) on the right pane, check “AppData” entry, in the data column see if it has
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data
if it does not then double click it and set it to that value, then click OK.

if you have the same problem with other entires (other than appdata) and you understood what I wrote, then you should be able to understand how to use the info in the following article:
