Recently I've had some strangeness on my Windows 7 home premium system. I have problems with various office products..all of which complain of
Outlook could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.
Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.
Could not install the custom actions. The form cache file 'C:\Users\tom\AppData\Local\Microsoft\FORMS\FRMCACHE.DAT' is not valid. Contact your administrator.
Additionally at boot this pops up...
Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working multiuser
I've tried setting the temp variable via ie temporary internet file changes. I set it to C:\Users\tom\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows and after reboot I open a command window and try this
.... > C:\Users\tom>cd %TEMP%
.... > C:\Users\tom\AppData\Local\Temp>
I can cd to %TEMP% or %TEMP%\Temporary Internet Files and create and remove directories.
I've tried both of these, fix1 and fix2.
I've run a full scan with malware bytes and KIS 188.8.131.524.
So looking for pointers to a solution. Thanks!
