    Question Not able to install programs - after deleting Public folder

    So i was going through my PC & found a folder called "Public" in the users folder...well i deleted it and now unable to install any programs because the programs are looking for it...i have tried to manually create all the right folders even took them off my new laptop and still getting the same problem. Could anyone help?

    I am getting this


    Could not access network location %PUBLIC%\Desktop\

    This folder is not on a network as i am not on a network i am on a work group.

    You haven't tried any undelete programs trying to recover the folders/files?
    A free altrenative that has helped me is Recuva: Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

    Hi there,

    There is nothing we could do it's the Public folder is removed. I would recommend to run a Repair Install How to run a Repair Install Windows 7 | Captain Debugger
