  1. Cannot read file in C:\ProgramData folder.


    I have a program which has a small text file in the C:\ProgramData\mfrg\appname folder. The program cannot read the file unless I select "Run as administrator" even though the account has administrator privileges.. I get an error that says the file cannot be located.

    How can I get the program to be able to read the file? The program does not have to write to the file, just read it.

    On rare occasions it will stop for a few seconds. I was able to copy this:

    The system cannot find the path specified.
