THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY CAN SOMEONE HELP? i have windows vista... and recently probably the last couple weeks i have been getting an error page that keeps popping up... sometimes 6 pages at a time or more... this is what it says...

HEADING: 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem


A temporary file needed for initalization could not be created or couldnt be written to. Make sure that the directory path exists and disk space is available. choose "close" to terminate the application.

I have ran adaware, malware, reg cleaner and mcafee, I have done a soft boot from the operating system disk, updated my drivers and reset internet explorer... I am at a loss as to what to do next... and confused because I have a 32 bit system. Help =) Thank you

EDIT: Moved from Vista forum to Am I Infected, more appropriate forum ~ Hamluis.

It's an Internet Explorer file. What version of IE are you using?

EDIT: How much space do you have left on your hard drive?
