Error code 5 Access denied whe installing ANY program

I have a computer that gives me error code 5 move file (sometimes folder) failed.  I can not install anything at all.  There was an isass.exe process that was running, but is not not there.

When I try to load stand alone programs to remove virus scanners they will not run.

This may ahve started with the unstall of one version of McAfee for the enterprise version..

HELP!

OK, simple test for the file permissions: can you add files to the problem folder(s) and then remove them again?

>> There is no security tab on this machines folders

if its XP Home, you have to login as Administrator in safemode to get that tab
for XP Pro, goto Explorer>Tools>Folder Options>View and untick Simple File Sharing
