Aargh XP is even worse than I thought...

You could track down a copy of ntswitch to turn it into an XP Prof I

The best way is to configure the TEMP to C:\TEMP and set it there in the
system environment & on the cvsnt control panel.  A *lot* of software will
break if it can't write to the temp directory, and if there's no way to
change the permissions then XP must be terminally broken.
