Exclamation Maya11 Fatal error Fatal Error."Attempting to save in C:/DOCUME...Temp/My Name....

I get this error message every time I open maya11 "Fatal Error. Attempting to save in C:/DOCUME..... ....Temp/My Name.20050602.1529.ma"!!! ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!

I have disabled everything such as triple buffering. But when I delete the maya folder in my documents and start it up again it works???? But as soon as i close the program and run it again, it does not work..same error? WHAT IS GOING ON?

I really don't want to keep having to delete the maya folder every time i want to start maya. What do you guys think the problem is?

I am using a geforce fx 5500 graphics card with 256mb of memory
Pentium 4 3.20 GHz processor

Not sure what the issue is, but it sounds like it's something that modifies something in your prefs folder. It is a common problem solver in maya to just delete the maya/prefs folder and it fixes things. In your case I would just uninstall and reinstall maya again and see if that helps. Have you tried a re-installation yet?
