Error 0005:0002 when trying to activate Panda Gold Protection 2014

Additional information

To know whether the option has been correctly unchecked, make sure the following Windows Registry entries have zero value (0). Follow the steps below:

  1. Click the Windows Start icon, Run, type in regedit and click OK.
  2. Locate the following registry entries by deploying the folders:

    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
  3. Select the Internet Settings entry from the panel on the left and check that the GlobalUserOffline entry is displayed on the right.
  4. If there is no GlobalUserOffline entry, the Internet Explorer has not been configured to browse in offline mode (without connection).
  5. If there is, check that the value in the Value column is 0x00000000 (0).
  6. If the value is 0x00000000 (1), it means your Internet Explorer is still in offline mode. You must therefore double click the GlobalUserOffline entry, change the Value data field from 1 to 0 and click OK.
