run a report and save it...then ATTACH it....

I know what I want to do, but those errors are very uncommon, too.

well, this process is fraught with danger.

Recognize that it could leave your system inoperable if something goes wrong--my sense is that you are not technically savvy, and I am worried about what you might do here--I am being as careful as I can in the instructions. If you have questions,

ASK ASK ASK ASK

-------------------------------

Start > run
Regedt32.exe
enter

navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

RIGHT CLICK the key (folder) MountedDevices

Choose PERMISSIONS

At the top of the box, you will see Administrators...select it; in the bottom box, you will see FULL CONTROL with a box to the left with two column: ALLOW and DENY...is ALLOW Checked?

Quit Regedt32.exe

Start run
regedit < == NOTE DIFFERENT
enter


Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

Right click \DosDevices\C:

Choose Rename.

Rename it to an unused drive letter, like \DosDevices\Z:

Find the key \DosDevices\F:

Right-click it, choose Rename

Rename it \DosDevices\C:

exit regedit

Restart the computer

If the computer does not boot, choose LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION
