While trying to install/upgrade some software/hardware the following error
message appears:

16 BIT WINDOWS SUBSYSTEM (on a blue background)

(the rest of the message is within the error message window)
C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Local Settings\Temp\
"A temp file needed for initialization could not be created or could not be
written to."

Anyone know what's missing?
Thanks
