Clickonce dfsvc.exe has encountered a problem

Problem 

When attempting to hit install for clickonce applications I am getting the following error.

dfsvc.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close...

 
Solution

1. Log in as the Administrator
2. Click "Start"
3. Click "Run"
4. Type "C:\Documents and Settings" and hit OK.
5. Find and OPEN the folder of the under privileged user which has issue.
5a. Inside this folder you will see a number of folders.
7. Locate the "Local Settings" folder. If this folder can not be seen then do the following.
7a. Click "Tools" from the menu.
7b. Click "Folder Options...”
7c. Click the "View" tab.
7d. Under "Hidden files and folders" make sure "Show hidden files and folders" is marked.
7e. Hit Apply then OK.
8. Now that you have located the "Local Settings" folder you have two options, you can either rename it to something else, or delete it. The folder will be recreated either way by windows on login. And in order to do this task you will need to be logged in as the administrator. 9. Restart Machine.
10. Log in with the under privileged user which has issue.
11. Try to duplicate the error.

Hope this solves your issue.

If you delete or rename the local settings folder, wouldn't you also delete any clickonce application that user has installed and/or lose all of their application data for any clickonce application?
