Solving problem with Access is denied during dowloading via Android SDK and AVD Manager

Android SDK and AVD Manager is pain in the ass.Nothing want work straightforward , but of my problems appear because i am tired and i should sleep now rather than force this Android stuff to work  and another reason is that Android SDK work poorly on slow internet.Is more sensitive than moody girl.

If you see    (Access is denied) during attempt to download something.......

 Downloading SDK Platform Android 2.2, API 8, revision 3
File not found: C:\PROGRA~2\Android\android-sdk\temp\android-2.2_r03-linux.zip (Access is denied)

...it means
 1)You need run AndroidSDK application as administrator, to do that you need "run as administrator" button from the context menu. (btw.   You may be user  who has administrator acount but that doesn't mean that your run specific program as administrator!)  .

2)another program used path   C:\PROGRA~2\Android\  (In my case was Windows Explorer  ) , only Android should use this path when trying download something.
