O.S. = Windows 7, 64-bit. Browser = Firefox 3.6.28

PROBLEM: I cannot download any applications from any website.

When I click on a website's "download" button, I immediately get a message box which says
" "C:\Users\[my name]\AppData\Local\Temp\[for example]wfxiIAci.exe.part" could not be saved,
because you cannot change the contents of that folder. Change the folder properties and try again,
or try saving in a different location".

When I checked ownership, "Users" was "Administrators"; "my name" was either "System" or
"my name"; "AppData" was "System"; "Temp" was probably "System".

I followed the instructions on a Microsoft "technet" webpage to change the ownership of the tree
"C:\Users\[my name]\AppData\Local\Temp" to "Administrators". This did not allow the downloads
or change the message.

Also, the Properties/Security box of my "C:\Users\[my name]" folder includes the Users
"Unknown Acct = S-1-5-21-879640176-2077098734-2292519611-1001"
and, "Home Users".

After deleting the computer's Limited Acct, the 2 Users are still listed.

"S-1-5-21-879640176-2077098734-2292519611-1001" is not found by the Yahoo Search
Engine. The Windows folder-specific search engine for "C:" and for "Users" searches essentially
indefinitely. That for the folder named after myself finds nothing.

Have you tried, ask me where to download the saved files in your Firefox browser options?
