When I type in make on the command prompt I get an error that says this:

    make: makefile: Permission denied
    make: ***No Targets. Stop

I am working on the temperature sensor and I'm using a windows computer.

You might need to run make as an administrator.

make: No Targets. Stop***

implies that you do not have your tempsensor folder in the right place i.e. PATH

You should have something like C:\Nerdkits\Code\tempsensor for your folder path.

You might download and unzip again.

You may need to reinstall WINAVR as administrator as well. Failure to install as admin (right click install file and select run as administrator) can prevent the path from updating and will prevent some files from installing.
