THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY CAN SOMEONE HELP? i have windows vista... and recently probably the last couple weeks i have been getting an error page that keeps popping up... sometimes 6 pages at a time or more... this is what it says...

HEADING: 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~1\IELowutil.exe

C:\Users\Myname\AppData\Local\Temp\.
Atemporary file needed for initalization could not be created or couldnt be written to. Make sure that the directory path exists and disk spas is available. choose "close" to terminate the application.

I have ran adaware, malware, reg cleaner and mcafee, I have done a soft boot from the operating system disk, updated my drivers and reset internet explorer... I am at a loss at to what to do next... and confused because I have a 32 bit system. Help =)

=) OK done. we shall see now... I'm not going to bother updating to IE8.... unless i absolutely have to... so I will let you know... happens several times a day so if it doesn't happen again by tomorrow we will know that that was the problem. looking at the date that it was installed on that may actually have been about the time the pop-ups started.. Thank you =)
