Hi Sampath
can you give some more details about your problem.
What are you trying to do when you receive that error? Is it when openening a folder (and a local folder or a network share), or a file or in a program….

if it’s a local file or folder you can try the following:
<ul>
* richt click the file or folder and choose properties
* in the security tab hit the “advanced” button
* in the “owner” tab select your name in the lower part
* check the “replace owner on subcontainers and objects” checkbox
* choose “OK”
</ul>

That should do the trick. If not: please provide more info. Thanks for the feedback.

I am trying to install ADOBE 6 and I am not able to complete the installation. Error returned is “Internal error2753″. As I navigated to a solution for this – run msconfig and disable the start up items, install adobe and then enable. When I try to implement the suggestion, even though I am logged on as Administrator, I am not able to disable the start up item and the mentioned error keeps coming up.. hope you get a insight into the problem being faced
