I have just downloaded CleanInstaller for the first time. I downloaded it to the desktop and double clicked to start it. I pressed 'run' on the next screen, but then it came up with a message:

'Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.'

What does this mean and how can I fix it?
(Sorry if I'm being a noob )

I don't really have any ideas, but maybe you can look on the proper Clean Installer website now, since i'm guessing they have a FAQ page? The only other thing i can think of is are you the administrator , or just a guest, or a secondary account, on your computer? I don't know if this would be a problem, but it might be the reason?

Just trying to help!

did you install the .net thing that the website told you to go to? go to the help section download FAQs and look in downloading for fracking geniuses and go to the clean install link and read on the page, it will then redirect you to microsoft to download the program you need :D

I installed it, and everytime I try to use it, it asks me to install it. It's annoying

I have the same problem. I try downloading off The Sims 2. :'( Then that message appears before the download even finishes.
