    Hi..

    Have noticed the following error getting generated when limited user profiles log on in Vista x32:
    Does anyone know of a fix please?

    Thanks.

    Check if the file "C:\Users\All Users\ESET\ESET Smart Security\Antispam\asdata.dat" exists. If so, does the current user have rights to write into that folder?

    Thanks for the swift reply Marcos. The file was present but only the administrators group had permission. I've made the changes so that should do it.

    Thanks again :)

    I assume that the system account has full permissions to that folder as well. At least it should have by default.
