Win7 - Desktop no longer accessible through IE8 upload/explorer
Found today that for some reason Internet Explorer 8 (running on Win 7 - 64bit) suddenly doesn't like accessing my c:\users\[user]\desktop folder and comes up with error: "[path]" is not accessible. The direct name is invalid"
Yet, I can use explorer to access the Desktop folder, I can use the exact same site on Firefox (ver 19.0.2) and have no problems whatsoever.
About the only thing I can think that's changed is that a bunch of AutoUpdates were applied when I booted up this morning so I'm guessing there's some kind of security update that has restricted access to IE8 or similar but can't conclusively prove either way.
All resources pertaining to the error indicate disk corruption, Group policy setting or ACL's but as yet I can't find anything that might hint at the issue...
If I find anything else I'll post back but if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears...
