Error writing to file: C:\ProgramData\Skype\Apps\login\languages\ar.js

I am currently running a Windows 7 Home Premium laptop, 64-bit operating system.
Prior to yesterday, Skype has always ran smoothly with very little lag or issue. However, when I tried updating Skype to the most recent version (5.5.0.124), my computer froze so I uninstalled Skype. Whenever I try to reinstall it, it doesn't install... It keeps giving me this error:

Error writing to file: C:\ProgramData\Skype\Apps\login\languages\ar.js

Verify if you have access to this directory

To top it off, when I try to install it causes my laptop to lag horribly

I've ran McAfee SecurityCenter to see if it's a virus causing my problems. There are no viruses on my computer and at this point I'm not sure what to do

Nevermind, I solved it :happy:

I believe the solutions may have been a combination of registry cleanup apps and CHKDSK, but ultimately I feel like CHKDSK solved the problem

 

Regardless, the problem is solved and I can finally use Skype!

How did you open that, because it doesn't open on my computer, the CHKDSK, and what did u do to it?
