Autocad 2004 is giving fatal error due to read only permissions

So in autocad I was getting this error.
 fatal error: all of possible directories for storing temporary file either does not exist or are read-only. Please correct this situation before running AUTOCAD again. 

Open in new window


Autocad suggested this:

But the problem is that when I uncheck read only, it is still there when I reopen properties. Ive tried the following.

Run malwarebytes scan...

Create a temp user account with admin rights ..rename C:\Temp to old...reboot and then try installing autocad in temp user account.

Uninstall your security software ..reboot and then run this command

secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose


Reboot and then check.
