Hello, this issue recently came up a few days. I'm using WinXP Service Pack 3.
Basically what happens is when I try to open an .exe file, I get an error stating "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." The first instance that I recall this happening was when I downloaded the Google Earth plugin and tried to install it. I have not changed any permission settings. Also, when I download an .exe file, Firefox will cancel the download. I can restart it and it'll download only to disappear-- perhaps deleting itself? I can't locate the file in the specified directly.
I know it's quite vague but I hope it's enough information.
