Windows 7: can't move Temporary Internet Files

Did you do a fresh install or was this an update? If under the security tab you see "Systems", double check to make sure that permission is set to "full control" for systems. If the options under security has any "greyed" out, you're more than likely inheriting that ACL from the parent drive or folder.... which could be your issue.

This was a complete "fresh" install (CUSTOM selected, not top "upgrade" option during CD install).

I just rebooted with ALL startup items ENABLED. Now, I just manually disabled Microsoft Security Essentials and tried moving the folder and it WORKS. It's MSE.

Yes, SYSTEM and Jim/admin BOTH have "full control" (top option checked). Both D: and E: show the same.

Can you explain what the above is trying to accomplish? %temp% I assume puts me in a directory associated with that variable/pathname.

Run -> temp gets UAC popup
Run -> %temp% works

I don't want to try the last until I know what it's going to do.

How do you know this? When I searched on any posts to find out why I couldn't move my TIF folder, I saw no references to AV.

Can you explain? The first 2 simply opened up Windows Explorer to a TEMP directory/folder. What does the prefetch command do?
