  1. heres the windows error message: Windows cannot access the specified device, file or path. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. ok so heres the deal I downloaded lame.(whatever) . for audacity from the audacity website and now whenever I try to download anything when I click on it it doesnt load and come up with that message at the start?
    I'm not supposed to install stuff on here anyway cos its my brothers pc so I cant install and virus/spyware programs without him knowing and getting angry at me. Any quick way of fixing it? Or anybody else who's had this problem?
    here's the specs (not that that matters much)
    asus A7N266-VM
    amd 2400+
    seagate 40gb hard drive
    512mb ram

    the computer's running pc cillin 2002 but for some dumb reason cant update it. and windows firewall ( I doubt if thats working properly either)

    thanks for any help in advance.

    Do you need admin rights ;)

    Youll have to go into user accounts in control panel and change the account from limited at administrator, but ask brother first.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You obviously have a limited user account.

    Your best bet would be to talk to your brother.
