windows 7 error privayciconclientexe configuration parser error

Error parsing:
c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\config\machine.config
Parse returned error 0x80070005

If you get this above error message on Windows 7 64bit computer.

I fixed this error on my computer by assigning full control or modify permission to my username for the machine.config file that was giving the error message.

Follow the instruction bellow to change the permission of this file:

1) Navigate to the folder c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\config
2) Right click machine.config and click Properties
3) Click the Security tap
4) Click Edit and then click Add
5) Type your computer username and click ok
6) Select your username and check-off full control in the permission pane

7) Click ok to all the open windows

Same fix applies for the 32-bit operating system but file is in different folder root.

Error will look like this:
Error parsing:
c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\config\machine.config
Parse returned error 0x80070005

Same fix above applies for the machine.config file under this folder:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Config

or
IAStoricon.exe – configuration parser error
