While trying to download updates from Microsoft a popup box appears and says, under the heading Microsoft 2002: Error 1317: Setup cannot create the folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft. Verify that the path exists in your system and that you have sufficient permissions to update it.
And at the same time I'm receiving notices from my taskbar saying that 'The file or directory C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data is corrupt and unreadable'.
How do I remedy this? The updates keep trying load to my computer and it will continue until I remedy this problem.
This is NOT an issue of sufficient permissions, it is an issue of the file being corrupted. How do I un-corrupt it? I have been having these problems ever since a sudden shutdown from an electrical blackout. Files continue to corrupt and I continue to Scandisk but with only temporary success.
I cannot restore to a previous date as my computer will NOT restore, I've gone through the process of trying to fix that and made a test restore date and it didn't work.
