    Set permissions to \<user>\AppData\Local\Temp folder


    Hi all. I have this problem: every time the Windows 8 starts it seems that i loose the permissions to the temp folder. As a result some applications using that folder to launch (for example Google drive) fail giving me an error. Another example are some installation files not starting because the temp folder cannot be used.
    So, i have always to go to temp folder and manually set the permissions to have all working.

    What can I do?
    Thank you

    So, I googled your problem and it appears that others are experiencing a similar issue and the common denominator appears to be an Adobe Acrobat product. So, you might want to check out these links if you have Acrobat installed:

    Adobe Community: Acrobat replaces NTFS permissions of Temp folder

    Good luck.
