Error writing temporary file
Hi, everyone.

My laptop running Vista Ultimate x64 crashed the other day and
refused to reboot, telling me that winload.exe was missing or
corrupt. I was finally able to run a startup repair from the
installation DVD and get it booted. Now everything seems to be
OK, EXCEPT that:

I now get the following error message at Windows startup and just
about whenever I try to do anything worthwhile:

NSIS Error
Error writing temporary file. Make sure your temp folder is
valid.

I don't know what NSIS is, but I am unable to send email or do
several other common tasks. Can anyone tell me how I can fix
this? Do I need to re-create some environmental variables that
have somehow been lost? %TEMP% is currently set to
c:\windows\TEMP, and System Properties shows that I have only
System variables set and no User variables.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

You could try Windows System File Checker to try and fix errors.
Info above.

MS search results for that error:
