Why do I see 'LastPass could not write to your hard drive' ?

You have likely changed the location of your temporary file directory or have set it as read-only.

Please take the steps below to resolve:

1) Hold your Windows key + R
2) In the screen that appears, please type %temp%
3) This will show you where your temporary folder is located (should end in \AppData\Local\Temp) in the top bar of the dialog that appears
4) If it ends in \AppData\Local\Temp , then please follow the other steps below to remove read-only status for the directory
 
Here are the instructions for removing read-only status for a directory from Microsoft's support page (can also be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326549/en-us):
 
1) Press your Windows key + R
2) Enter attrib -r +s drive:\<path>\<foldername>, replacing drive:\<path>\<foldername> with the path that you retrieved from the instructions above (should end with \AppData\Local\Temp)
3) This should then remove read-only status from your temporary folder and the message should disappear
