Error Writing to Temp Location

Whenever I try some downloaded .exes I get an error saying 'error writing to temp location' or something similar. I've tried running them as admin, tried running them without UAC, and even tried to change the temp location from environment variables but it doesn't change. Is there any fix or an installer file I can download and reinstall to fix the microsoft installers? (win7 x64)

Have you checked what event viewer is saying? Type eventvwr in search. Go to the windows log>application tab and look for critical errors (they have red in the left column) that say app hang, app crash, etc.. note the event ID and source code and relay them to us

Let us know if you need help

I changed the temp folders property, they were read only. This seems to fix the problem sometimes. They revert back to read only after a while. So I'm not sure what the issue is...
