Interesting UAC find


Recommended Posts

After not having my machines for about a year and a half I come to find out when I go to attempt to install anything I cannot do so with any account except the built in Admin account. I had my UAC turned off completely. After quite a bit of research I found the best possible solution is to create a new profile. Me not wanting to re-organize my files, and re-install programs I finally found this link here: http://insectophobia.wordpress.com/2012/07/22/error-writing-temporary-file-make-sure-your-temp-folder-is-valid

I turned UAC back on and was able to use my account normally. My issue is, you would think there would be a way to write to the registry or something to avoid having to create a new profile all over. I figured I would share this, because it seemed pretty interesting and useful.
