I'm not familiar with miniclip, but I would suggest trying to contact them about the problem, if it really is a permissions issue then they have to fix it on their end, also could be that you used the wrong login information, you could also try using a different web browser some sites work better with anything but Internet Explorer, I would recommend Fire-Fox, or kameleon, if you were using something other than IE then try using IE. The error message you are getting generally means a permissions error, it could be a bad url as well, are they undergoing any maintenance on their site right now? if so then they could have moved the file and not updated the url just yet, the only way to know for sure is to contact them and if the problem is on your end maybe try a different pc or change some of the security settings in your browser. Good luck.

Windows "remembers" the drive-letter and "path" that was used the last time that you saved something. So, just choose a VALID drive-letter and a VALID path, and the download will progress.

My computer keeps giving this message:windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item

Most often permission problems are the result of a virus.I recommend down loading the free version of avira anti virus then run a scan in safe mode and see whats on your system.

Its possible that there is an admin policy in your computer not allowing you to do anything. The other option could be that there is a virus in your computer.

Do you have an anti virus program to scan for viruses?

Is your user id set for admin privileges?
