Fixed

Title says it all, I can't really say how this happened. I just started getting this error out of no where, and now every time I try to install something or execute an application it gives me the error

C:>>Foldername<<\>>computername<<\>>programname<<<.exe

The hande is invalid.

Any ideas what might be causing this ?

I figured out my problem. You see I use process guard because I'm extremely paranoid and accidentally clicked on "Blocked New and Changed Applications" since most of the applications I was trying to install were new applications ;It wouldn't let me and would also block old applications that I had not added to the white list.

Thank you for the support I'm sure I will be able to use the link you gave me in the future.
