In addition, only the administrator and EFS recovery agents are able to use the Explorer bar on the desktop.
- Log on as an administrator.
- Remove the encryption setting on the temporary folder.
- Reinstall the program or the critical update, or reapply the hotfix.
- Restore the encryption setting on the temporary folder.
When you install a program, or install a security update, files are first extracted to the temporary folder. When the files are created in the temporary folder, if the encryption attribute is set, the files inherit this setting from the temporary folder. The files are then moved to their proper locations by the installation program. The files retain the encryption attribute when they are moved to their respective place in the operating system on the same hard disk.
Only EFS recovery agents are able to decrypt and use these files. The built-in administrator is the default EFS recovery agent.
