Cannot Access Temp Folder For .pdf Creator


This is a new pc installed with windows 7 basic i installed a physical printer via usb no problem , then tried to install a .pdf creator to send statements from a rental program. On installation and opening the .pdf creator program i receive an error that it does not have permission to open the temp folder.

I then also tried to install a second printer via usb but constantly receive the message usb device not recognized! And the printer cannot be found or installed. The .pdf creator should create a pdf printer under printers but it hasn't. I was convinced after scouring countless forums  that the two problems were linked and had to do with -user account control settings - alas after disabling it no luck neither will work.

I have tried the following rebooted countless times unplugging the pc turned uac off and on with reboots in between and attempting .pdf creator install and the second usb printer install with this setting on and off with no luck.

Checked the register entry for uac to ensure it was totally disabled checked that the second usb samsung printer is 100% compatible with windows 7 downloaded the latest .pdf creator installation files rolled back all the windows 7 updates with a system restore uninstall all the usb drivers which then reinstalled on reboot. Tried to manually add the samsung printer using add printer
I am now at a loss and am convinced the two problems are linked.

How To Change Ie Temp Files Folder?

I am using ie8. I have clicked on a link to download a small video file. The file downloads ok - well, the progress bar goes from 0 to 100%. Then i get an error message saying "windows cannot find the . Make sure you typed the name correctly, then try again. "

That's an interesting error, since i didn't actually type anything.

Ie's temporary files location is set to c:usersjeffreyappdatalocalmicrosoftwindowstemporary internet files, which exists, but is a protected system file.

The file in the error message is c:usersjeffreyappdatalocalmicrosoftwindowstemporary internet fileslowcontent. Ie5o4c0mhonfilename. Wmv

The directory low does not exist. Why is ie trying to download to a nonexistent directory and how do i fix this problem?

Folder Access Denied - Cant Delete Folder

Folder access denied

You'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder

Continue skip cancel

- I click continue and i get:

Folder access denied

You require permission from laptop/chris to make changes to this folder

Try again cancel

- I am laptopchris! (My username is chris on the login screen so i presume i am laptop/chris). Do i have to have permission to do something on my own computer? It's my computer! Im a newbie when it comes to windows 7. Windows 95, 98, 98se, me, 2000, xp im more advanced in, with vista im slightly there.

I have tried numerous attempts at the silly take ownership thing but it seems to have failed. The message i get up when applying the new settings is:

Error applying security information to :

C:users.

Access is denied

This is rather frustrating - am i doing something wrong? Would someone please provide simple, easy to follow, accurate steps to take ownership and provide me with a solution or better, a fix, if this doesn't work?

Getting Folder Access Denied

I am trying to copy files from my old xp pro laptop to my new windows 7 desktop. I've shared the drive from my old laptop on my home network. I can see the folders and files i want to copy. I started to copy a folder and it copied 2 files then gave me a folder access denied message. The files that copied witn no problem were an excel 2003 spread sheet and a word 2003 document. The file that won't copy is a .zip file. I am the only user on both the xp pro and the windows 7 server. I just want to copy all the documents i have from the old laptop to my new computer. Sounds pretty straight forward. Any ideas on how to do this simple task?

Cannot Access Documents And Setting Folder

I recently installed windows 7 rc as a dual boot with xp. Unfortunately, in windows 7, not only can i not access my documents and setting folder (win7 partition), but nothing through the 'user' folder, either. I created a new account, and had the same trouble. I've tried changing permissions through the tabs and dialogs, including in safe mode, and just as it seems it's getting ready to write the new permissions, it pops up yet another 'access denied' dialog. I've gone through windows update and all is up to date.

Should i be concerned, or is this a 'windows 7 rc' quirk?  How will it affect applications i might want to install to "try out"?

Add Another Computer To Folder Access

I have windows 7 ultimate acting as the "server" on a network. This unit has multiple users on it. In the office i also have additional computers, (different computer names), with the exact same users/passwords setup on them. They match the "server" computer. I am now trying to setup security on the "server". What i would like to do is share a folder with specific privileges that allow/restrict access to specific users. The problem is i can not change the "from this location" when adding a user/group. I need to allow the user serveruser1 and officersuser1, etc. To have specific access to various files/folders. How can i do this?

Folder Access Denied For Administrator

I need to reset a number of data files in my application data folders. However i cannot open these folders as "access is denied" e.g.

C:usersappdatalocalapplication data is not accessible. Access is denied.

Same "access is denied" with documents and settings, history, temp internet files, cookies etc. {Edit: and local settings - this is getting critical - please help!}

I have tried:

Properties > security tab - administrator has greyed allow ticks against all - still cannot access folders

Resetting security defaults - as per other solution for vista - still cannot access folders

Can't Access Root Folder Nas Drive

Since i upgraded from vista to windows 7 i can't access my root folder on my network drive (nas) anymore. In vista when i choose network it displayed me all networks including my nas drive, there i could select it and it would forward me to the nas root. In windows 7 it doesn't show me to nas and if i tell to go to root likezelst it will give me a permission / access error. The only way for me is to map a sub-folder on the nas directly likezelstfolder1 etc. I wanna know if i can make windows 7 show me my nas drive again and being able to access it's root folder.

Downloading And Viewing A Pdf File

When i log into my utility provider web site to view my bill, internet explorer 8 opens a window and tries to down load the pdf file but just sits doing nothing. I have adobe reader 9 installed and if i try a different browser the pdf file is displayed correctly even with my anti virus active and i can print and save the file so the problem is obviously ie8. I have checked the settings etc but cannot see any thing obvious that is stopping the file from opening. Have tried shutting down my anti virus to see if this is affecting it but it has no effect.

Stops Opening Pdf Files From Website

My customer runs this site built in frontpage and maintained by godaddy (http://courthousecowboysrunamuk.net/) about 2 weeks ago the page started freezing up after opening and closing pdf documents. Only after about 5 or more times of trying them. Random links from the site. Not the same one every-time. The customer is running xp. The problem does not occur on other sites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have disabled and re-enabled the add on in ie.

I booted with all but windows processes disabled and startup extras disabled. The problem still occurred. I made sure all windows, ie, and adobe updates were present. I tried the same on another xp pc and the same problem occurred. It does not occur on windows 7 computers. Do not have a vista in the office to try. Am going to uninstall updates from an xp computer to see if that fixes it, but any other ideas?

Print Preview Error - Printing To Adobe Pdf

Print preview error - occurs when printing to adobe pdf print driver. I purchased a new computer with windows 7 pro. When i try to print a web page (ie 8) using print preview, "as selected on screen", shrink to 85%, then print to adobe pdf print driver, the ie 8 page got stuck. So i have to end task it all the time.
 
However, if i try it with different browsers, it prints with no problem. I tried sfc /scannow, checkdisk, disabling add-on programs, but did not work. Add/remove programs does not show ie 8, so i can not uninstall/reinstall it. Is there any way to install ie 8 fresh on windows 7 pro?

Pdf File Association Not Found In Live Mail

If a message received in live mail on a windows 7 home premium 64 bit machine contains a pdf file attachment, that attachment cannot be opened from live mail. Word file attachments and others can be opened.

When the attempt to open the pdf file attachment is made, the message informs that "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. " If the file is saved to the local computer, it can be opened normally, as the file association is correct. This is confirmed by typing assoc .pdf in a command window and receiving the response ".pdf=acroexch.document". How can opening pdf documents from live mail be accomplished without saving them first.

Printing To Email From Word Perfect Or Pdf Files

After the recent automatic upgrades to my computer, it's changed a lot of things about the start up. I don't like them but can live with them if i have to, although i don't see why i should. I had no problems like this with my xp system. It was much more stable and i didn't have to do cartwheels every time i started it up. I absolutely hate windows 7.

Also, after the upgrades went into effect, i could not open and print word perfect documents or pdf files from e-mail when i could before. I have word perfect and adober acrobat on my computer. What did you change and how do i fix your problem?

When i try to print a pdf file from ie it prints as a mirror image. I can change this in the printer driver, but the next time it will default to mirror printing again. If i copy the file to the desktop, open it from there and print, everything is.

Error - Access Is Denied When Trying To Access A Shared Drive

I am getting an error "access is denied" when trying to access a shared drive on windows 7 machine that is not the specified "public" folder. How do i fix this?. I have done a fair bit of googling to no avail!

I have also made all he necessary network and sharing settings to allow connections. Other computers can access the "public" folder. But not the other shares that i set up. Although the other computer/s can 'see' them when viewing workgroup computers. Nb. All machines are on the same workgroup name.
