    Please see if there is an Error in the Event Viewer that corresponds to the Error 102 message:

    Start> Run> type in eventvwr
    You can ignore Warnings and Information Events. If you have a recurring Error with same ID#, same Source and same Description, only one copy is needed. You don't need to include the lines of code- if any- in the box below the Description.

    This will give us additional information to look for a cause and a resolution.
