 Hello, my computer has been acting really strange. I can't download anything because the temp folder has been mesed with, and I don't know how to fix it. Plus the privileges are all messed up and I have to right click "Run as administrator" all the time. If you know what the problem is I would be really grateful. :) I can't even play minecraft.

How do you came to the conclusion "Temp" is messed up. If you want to clean temp files run TFC by oldtimer

Also run disk cleanup from "Accesseries-->System Tool" and move your data from desktop and documents to another logical drive to free disk space on C.

 Because I have photos that I couldn't open in windows viewer and I looked up some ways to cure it. Someone suggested making another temp folder and redirecting them to there. I think I have duel problems going on, but I will download the temp file cleaner and let you know. :)

 

 I have 316 GB free out of of 454 GB if this helps.

So you have 316 GB free space in C Drive. Referring to the picture it looks like you have some kind of permission issue. First make sure you are running from an administrator account. If you still face problem in administrator account try re installing firefox. How downloading works in Chrome, IE or Opera ?

I downloaded it successfully from I.E. I thought it was more of a permission issue then anything else. This is the administrator account, which doesn't make sense. I used the temp folder cleaner and it had to reboot. What do you think would be the next step? Thanks again. :) Still having permission issues.

Hi

 

Try the following steps.

 

Uninstall firefox and install the latest version.

 

Open command prompt and enter "CHKDSK C: /F" to force a file system check. Check disk will ask your permission to do a check on next boot. Please press "Y" to confirm and restart your system to begin check disk. We are doing this to fix any errors caused by improper shutdown.

 

If the above steps didn't solve your problem, download "Tweaking.com Windows repair" from http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/windows_repair_all_in_one.html

 

Run the utility and unselect all option. Tick 'reset file permissions' (Refer the picture) and start the repair. Hopefully this will solve any permission issues.
