I have a 2003 Server domain and Vista Business laptop with latest service packs. When away from the office there are no problems but after logging at the office I have a user that cannot open attachments in Outlook 2007 and cannot download any files in Internet Explorer. I have discovered that I cannot access any directories under c:\users\username\appdata\microsoft\windows\temporary internet files\low or c:\users\username\appdata\microsoft\windows\temporary internet files\content.ie5. Cannot even view the permissions or ownership of the directories logged in a user, local admin or domain admin.

Running a chkdsk /f fixes the problem temporarily, I have not reinstalled vista but did image to a new hard drive and no bad sectors were found on the old or new drive.

Hi alanpennington, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Try running sfc /scannow.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks, but I forgot to add that I already tried "sfc /scannow" in my previous troubleshooting. It ran successfully and gave no indications that it repaired anything.
