Error 258 appears on a machine with CCleaner installed

When ABBYY software is started the following error message appears: Error code 258.

If CCleaner software is installed on your computer, follow the steps below:

  1. Launch CCleaner.
  2. Click on Registry.
  3. Tick off ActiveX and Class Issues section to exclude it from scanning.
    Important: do not tick on this option in the future to not clean files which are used in FineReader.
  4. Go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.
  5. Right-click onto ABBYY FineReader and select Modify and then Repair.
  6. Wait until the installation is completed.
  7. Launch FineReader and check if the issue persists.

If CCleaner is not installed on your machine, follow the steps from the article.
