It’s an environment variable that expands to your temp folder. Type it into the Windows Explorer address bar.

Here is %temp%

Sorry for the delay under the weather. But again both dl'd and run with similar results.

Excellent, fixed an oversight. But I wanted to see the error from just the first file first.

Could you download, again, the first file—just the first one—run it and if you get an error upload the pp_err.txt file for it?

Thanks.

Ok done. Couple things. Had some time to look at the results. Know little of such things but in my opinion, this little program is some elegant coding. Anyway, here is the next result. Thanks

Thanks.

Hm. I don’t know why this happens. For some reason the security descriptor on C drive still refuses to be read even after all the privileges and other measures. But I cannot replicate this specific error.

Is it locked? Is it corrupt? Need to get to the bottom of this.

Need more information. Would you be able to download this file attached. It will produce a “c_errinfo.txt” on your desktop. Could you upload this?

Always wondered about a corruption. This is what I see when I run Speccy. I note the root directory is often Users/Administrator.Lar-PC.0001. I've included three clips of interest.

Isn't the disk analyzer clip number 17,592,186,036,469MB way too large on a 120gb drive?

Yes. Those number’s are off the rails. We could indeed be dealing with some sort of corruption or disk failure, and if that’s the case then it’s hardly a permissions problem and there is no point in performing diagnostics for this.

However, a claim from one source is hardly mounting evidence, even if it is Speccy. Are you able to identify another clue that would allude to corruption?

How much free space would you say you actually have, or if you remember, the last known amount? Less than 100MB is far too small to be working with.

Malwarebytes vs. IObit fiasco comes to a close
Last month the interwebz was jolted by Malwarebytes' claims of IObit stealing their intellectual property and using it in IObit Security 360.
