I figured it out. i'm not sure if it's right though. 
i tried that crtl shift e thing and the inputs were exactly same.

i change the commands from

SetDirectory["C:\Biology\temp"];

to 

SetDirectory["C:\Biology\Temp"];

after renaming the folder temp to Temp 

and it worked. 

that is so weird, and to thnk that used to work fine... mayeb my
install is gone bad...
