Hi,
I finally got Win 7 and while I was trying to network 2 computers together, I ran across a program on the AT&T website called 'AT&T Troubleshoot and Resolve Tool' for finding problems with your network. I downloaded and installed it but right when it said Program Launching, an error message pops up saying "Error writing to temporary file. Make sure your temp folder is valid." I don't know what to do with this. I tried a few different things, putting the actual downloaded file (the one you can run or save) and saving it to username/appdata/local/temp and installing it from there. I thought about the permissions that I had changed (like an idiot:eek:) because I can't stand being locked out of anything, but then I read on quite a few sites that changing permissions doesn't fix it. So I left well enough alone. Maybe I should go back and change them back. But what concerns me is that on most sites that had something on this, the programs that was being installed (unsuccessfully) when this exact message popped up for them was a completely different program. They were all different programs. Someone was installing Roxio, someone else a youtube downloading program, someone else was trying to install Mozilla and got the same error message.
What's up with that? Is this going to be a common problem that 7 is going to have? The same error code pops up in both vista and xp too.
It seems like you guys like the 'Hijack This' report, so I ran and posted the log.
I hope someone has some input on whats going on here.

So your original problem is a networking problem? What was that exactly?

Well the original original problem was I was struggling with getting my 2 computers hooked up in a network. AT&T determined that my line from the pole is bad. But while I was on their website I found this program called 'AT&T Troubleshoot and Resolve Tool'. I dwnlded and installed it, but this error message came up that said 'Error writing to temporary file. Make sure your temp folder is valid'. I have no idea why I'm getting this message. What do I do to get the program to install?


Also I just now noticed all the missing files in my Hijack This log. Is that normal?
