Occasionally, that error will show up when the "Temp" folders have too many files. So, clean out all files from the C\Windows\Temp folder, then C\Windows\Temporary Internet Files folder, and the C\Temp folder. Leave the folder, but delete all the files inside. When you're done, run the computer for a while, opening and closing programs, just to make sure there are not critical files that have been sent to the Recycle Bin. Once you're sure that everything is running correctly, then delete the files from the Recycle Bin, then run Scandisk and Defrag.
As long as you have never saved any personal documents to the "Temp" folders, the files inside should be safe to delete.
Hope this helps.
Windows ME, Dell Dimension 4300.
After downloading a critical update from the Microsoft website to upgrade to Internet Explorer 6, an error shows installation was incomplete and I'm required to obtain additional files from Internet, but when I choose to proceed with that download, I receive another error stating that "There is not enough space to install Internet Explorer," and that the update will require 64663 KB of disk space, plus an additional 14000 KB to complete the process. Further down it states, "You need to have '70924' KB free on Drive C" and below that, "You need to have '7738' KB free space on drive"
However, my system shows 31.7 GB of free space on drive C, which of course is PLENTY.
Does anyone know what's up??? Thanks in advance...
