I get this when trying to uopload an avatar
Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file
I'm on a windows 2003 server with apache
Perhaps you need to change the attributs of that folder on the server...
I dont know how to do it on a windows server though..
I think its the customavatars folder in /public_html or /html
This is only a guess mind :)
You may also have the wrong folder in your settings, in User Picture Storage Type, under Avatars

This also happens if you're trying to upload the wrong file format, or an improperly tagged image. Try uploading a .jpg/.jpeg/.bmp and see if you still get the error.

aswell as that to upload to the directory if that is the case you need to change the permissions, im guessing its dedicated, so log into the remote desktop, go to the file you are trying to upload to, and right click on it, make sure that IUSR_******** has read and write access to the folder, also make sure that when you look at the sites preferences in apache that it is enabled for write access there as well
Try switching to ImageMagick instead of GD if you can... I have same problem and I am pretty sure this is the cause... GD library only supports a few file types.
