    Adobe installer failed because he cannot access this directory.
    I looked at it with explorer and it tells me, that it cannot display the
    current owner.
    I used AccessEnum to display ACL of the entire disk and there are a lot of
    directories below C:\$recycle.bin for which permissions cannot be listed.
    Anybody know how this could happen?

  3. Frank,

    I had the same problem after trying to upgrade Adobe reader.

    I Too could not acces or change the owner of this map.

    The thing that worked for me was to run a checkdisk on the C: drive.
    It corrected some problems and thereafter I could rename the Reader 9.0
    directory and install the Adobe Reader 9.3. Then I found that the old PFM
    directory was no longer there so I deleted the renamed directory. All is well
    now....

    Hope this helps you too.
    Greetings Peter
