It appears that SpamBayes isn't able to get permission to write to  
your temp directory.  The temp directory should be accessible to any  
program; it's likely you'll have problems with other applications if  
that permission isn't available.

To change the permission of the folder, open up Windows Explorer  
(Windows-E) and type in the address bar: "C:\Documents and Settings 
\Peter\Local Settings\" (no quotes).  Find the folder named "Temp" in  
there, and right click it and choose "Properties".  You can change  
the permissions in this dialog - I don't have access to a Windows  
machine right at the moment, but I think it's on the "Sharing" tab  
under permissions.

It's possible that some other program (which you have presumably  
recently installed or updated) has decided to block access to the  
temp directory.  If this is the case, then you'll have to stop that  
program doing that.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
