Can't install program - Program Data folder permissions?
I'm trying to instal Skype on my PC and I keep getting this error message: 'An error occured while attempting to create the directory: c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu.
This is what I've done to try and remedy it:
1. Right clicked the installer file and tried to run as Administrator. Didn't work.
2. Changed security permissions on the folder ProgramData and give full control to me. Didn't work.
The folder is 50% transparent and something's not right with it but I can't figure out why.
