Hello guys,

I am experiencing an error when I start my computer just after the boot process. I am running Windows 8 and I have lots of programs installed so I can’t figure out what is causing this behavior. Please assist me.

Error

The condition must be Boolean!

This error that instantly appears right after you boot your computer is obviously from a program that automatically runs together with Windows. At this point, you need to know which program is it that generates this error. To learn which program is it, you need to access “msconfig” or the startup configuration of Windows.

To open msconfig, click Start, Run, and type without quotes “msconfig” then hit Enter. Select Startup tab, uncheck the first box, click OK then restart your computer. See image.

If the error still appears, open msconfig again, check the box you first unchecked, uncheck the next box, click OK then restart your computer. See image.

If after this the error still appears repeat the above step until you find out which program is causing the error. When you finally zero in on the program, open msconfig again, click Enable All, click OK then restart your computer. See image.

After this you may try reinstalling the affected program. Since you are using Windows 8, this problem usually happens after upgrading your operating system to Windows 8. When upgrading to Windows 8, you need to reinstall all programs on your computer to restore them on the new platform.

Some registry keys are causing this problem. These happen because these keys are possibly:

  1. More than 8 kb
  2. Corrupt
  3. Has incorrect permissions

 

To address this problem, you need to do the following upon the prompt of the error:

  1. Press Shift and F10
  2. Go to C:windowsPanther
  3. Next find Setup.etl file. Copy this file to D: partition
  4. From the corrupted computer, copy setup.etl file and transfer to another computer that is on Windows. Copy it on C:
  5. On the Windows 7 computer, open a Command Prompt and navigate to c: and then type "tracerpt setup.etl -o logfile.csv"
  6. Close prompt and in your choice of text editor, open logfile.csv  
  7. Look for the following message: "Failed to process reg key or one of it's decendants" or an error message that says "Failed to process reg key or one of its descendants: [REGISTRYMACHINESOFTWAREESETESET [email protected] profile]" 
  8. Search for "reg key" or "failed to process"
  9. By then you should have found the failure.  Delete the cause indicated. Reboot and it should work properly now.
