Adobe Distiller Error 183 Cannot create a file when that file already exists

Hello! 

I have an issue where I have a reoccurring error (noted in the subject line). I have gone through and double-double checked  all of the permissions for user access to the Temp folder and that isn't the problem. I reinstalled Adobe Acrobat and am still getting the error. 

I have a feeling that it has something to do with the pathway for which temp files are being stored, but I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas before I start messing with my Temp folders. 

 

Thanks in advance!
