I'm running Windows 7. I have been trying to install some game cracks without CD that I downloaded from pirate bay using Daemon Tools Lite. After I got a version of King's Bounty working the game suddenly crashed and when I went to run it again I discovered that it had been uninstalled. When I tried to reinstall I got an "access denied" error message when I tried to open the zip file with the installation program in it. When I looked at the error message details I discovered that it was unable to create "autorun.inf" file in my Temp folder and suggested I may lack administrative privileges. I've had this computer for many years and previously installed other game cracks without any problems (other than the occasional missing dll). I've never had an "access denied" message appear before. Now when I try installing any games (via files with installation programs in WinZip and using Daemon Tools Lite) I get the same message. I tried removing all files I donwloaded with King's Bounty but to no avail. I've run virus scans with both AVG and MalwareBytes (both free versions and updated) and found nothing. I searched to see if there was an existing autorun.inf in my Temp folder but there were only a few on my C drive that had been created years previously for unrelated programs and none of them in my temp folder. Some sites I visited online suggested this might have something to do with security settings but I've tried turning off both AVG and MalwareBytes and it didn't make any difference. I don't have McAfee which some sites pointed to as the potential problem. At this point I'm at a loss as to what I can do and came here to hopefully get a solution.
