I expect that's XP Home being 'helpful'.  I've never heard of a read 
only permission for folders though... you can deny file creation rights 
etc. but it's complex (some permissions only apply to subdirectories, 
some apply to the current directory but don't inherit, some apply to 
files... you need to look at the advanced permissions to see what's 
really going on, especially when it comes to things like the temp 

Not sure how you'd get rid of that kind of thing...  create your own 
temp directory will help (if you haven't already... c:\windows\temp is 
fine on a normal system but XP Home isn't normal..), but it might detect 
that and do the same thing as soon as it sees a temp environment 
variable set.
