Web Part Error : Cannot deserialize the Web Part

Hi Guys,
                Facing another web part error ? Wondering what to do when you receive the error Cannot deserialize the web part every where on the page ?

 I have faced a similar situation and have found a solution for it. Solution is very simple ....

I am assuming that your wss is running under the Network Service Credentials. If that is the case and you have just restarted the server machine and started getting this error then follow these steps............

1. Go to the windows directory and find the TEMP folder e.g c:\windows\TEMP.
Right click the TEMP folder and select the security tab. 
2. Click the add button for adding a new user. write the name network service and press check names. Give Read/Write rights and press OK.
3. Go to the location c:\windows\system32\Logfiles folder and follow the instructions given in step 2.

That's it. Refresh the page and the error is gone !!

If it is still troubling you . Write to us at with a screenshot of the error page (if possible). We will feel happy to help you as always.
