I can't download anything because my temporary file/folder is not valid. I don't know how this happened and I have no idea how to fix it. I would greatly appreciate some ideas on how to fix this. I can't download the Rkill because the temp. file is not valid. I'm now getting multiple NSIS error messages that are all the same as the topic title. Please help! Many thanks in advance...Diane

Hi,

 

Can you please check the environment variables here?

Do you see the TEMP path?

I went to the site recommended. I looked under environmental variables...the TMP path is C:\Windows\TEMP. I have no idea how/what to edit it with. I also cannot download anything and save on hard drive, I have to save on a removable drive.

OK, the temp path is correct.

Do you use a firewall software like Comodo? If so try disabling and test it again.
