If you checked the above then check this special case of "full access":
%TEMP% should not be encrypted with EFS. (Windows included encryption in
W2K/XP Prof.)
With an enrcrypted %TEMP% there may be problems when installing msi
packages. Files that should be installed are extracted into a subdir of
%TEMP% and automagically encrypted with the public encryption key of the
actual user. Th msi service - running as SYSTEM user - has no rights to
decrypt these files and the installation fails.
I realized this problem once in the past on W2K and did not try to
enable EFS encryption on %TEMP% since then. So may be this is not true
any more.
