IE8 cannot download anything after moving user profiles
Posted on 2011-02-16
I have installed an SSD, moved all user profiles to one of my SATAII drives with oodles of storage and everything seems to be working OK except for two things.
1. IE8 cannot download anything (doesn't matter where from) - it comes up with an error saying (for example) "unable to download SteamInstall.msi from cdn.steampowered.com. Unable to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."
2. Windows Live Messenger keeps creating files in "C:\Users\Reece\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Messenger". The entire Users folder on C: was deleted because everything is now on Y:. This seems to be the only program doing this, so far.
Anyone got ideas on how to fix both?
