Why am I receiving the following error when opening illustrator 9?

By nyyanks1 ·
I had issues with Illustrator 9.0.1. So I reinstalled it. When I try to open the software, I receive the following error. Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access.

My OS is Windows XP SP3.

Thanks for your suggestion, but I solved it.

My anti-virus program, Kaspersky, had marked it as untrusted. Once I figured out how to change it to trusted, it opened immediately.
Thanks again!
