Preferred Solution: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


On Windows7 Pro,  trying to run IIS.  The way I am used to execute is  on the browser "localhost".  I used to have the code in the directory  C:\inetpub\wwwroot.   Even before I copy,  I am hoping to see
the image IIS welcome page.  Once it is successful, want to copy the code as that was the way I used to do in Window XP.    However I am getting the following message.  I have administrator access to the machine and gave full permissions
to the folder  'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.  Still the same message. 
Error message 401.3: You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied (access denied due to Access Control Lists). Ask the Web server's administrator to give you access to 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.

Can someone help me to address this issue.  Thanks a lot in advance.

Hello all,

i have a very frustrating problem. Every time i try to connect to a network shared folder, it asks for my credentials. i put the ones for the computer im connecting with and hit ok. It then tells me at the bottom that access denied.
I have tried every possible credential combo i can and have even created another user account but it still doesn't work.

it setup a domain for me, but i don't know if i should be inputting its password. but even then i don't know that domains password. (its called sadsad because i was trying to recover my account that was the user name i added)

A:asks for credentials, then says permission denied

If you are in a Domain, what are you using as your Domain Server and Active Directory?

Good day and thank you for reviewing this post.
I have been dealing with a computer that had multiple viruses ..... including the TDSS. I have successfully removed TDSS and others from machines using a cocktail of Vipre, MWB, Avast boot scan, and Combofix. I have probably done 10 of these in the past 2 months with no side effects.
Recently I have experiences 2 machines that refuse to access MS update site after full removal. I have "verified" my complete removal by running MWB and Vipre in safe mode and getting no hits.
I have tried Dial-a-fix, and I have followed the instuctions as MS for this 403 Forbidden error to no avail.
All else seems to work well ... web sites, email, programs, etc. The only thing I cannot seem to do is MS updates ... I can even update MWB and Avast ... but not MS updates.
Does anyone out there have any experience with this or suggestions as to what I should do to regain my ability to do updates?
Thank you very much for your time and advice.

I have Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 and I have msn.com as my home page. When I tried getting onto my home page a little bit ago, a notice came up that said "Server Error 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied". I was able to go on other web sites fine and when I changed the home page (back to msn), the message went away. But other users on the computer have the same problem. I heard someone say it may be the result of a hijackware infection. Could that be the case or something else? Thanks.

OK... here's a bit of a description of the hardware / software I'm dealing with...

- Active Directory resides on a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition
- Microsoft Exchange 2007 resides on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition

I'm not real strong with networking, so please bear with me, as I try to explain my situation.

We have users running Outlook 2007, 2003, 2000. Everyone is receiving their e-mails through Microsoft Exchange Server, not via POP3. Everything has been working fine.

Yesterday we had a power outage, and I was unable to shut the servers down before the UPS's depleted.

Now every user that is using Outlook 2000 is unable to get to their e-mail. When they start Outlook 2000 and they type their Username, Domain, and Password, they get the message, "The logon credentials supplied were incorrect. Make sure your username and domain are correct, then type your password again."

I have checked their accounts, and they are also able to log on to Outlook Web Access.

Does anyone know what the issue might be? I don't think i can get approval for upgrades right now, and the supervisors don't want the users to have to use Outlook web access.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Since installing Windows 8, I have been having sporadic problems with access denied. Examples follow:

PIMEX is a Personal Information Manager that I have been using through several generations of Windows. When I first converted to Windows 8, this program worked with no problems. Now, however, when I try to open the program, I get the message "PIMEX database could not be opened. Error message: permission denied". If I use the Control Panel to uninstall the program, and then reinstall the program, I am able to open it normally and work with it and use all functions. Once I close the program, however, and try to open it again, I once again get permission denied.

PaperPort is a program that manages scanned images. The program can scan either photos or text documents. If text is selected, the program creates a PDF file that the user names. These scanned files are then stored in PaperPort folders. When I try to display one of these files, PaperPort invokes PDF Viewer Plus (included with the package), and I get the message access denied. If I try to use the Windows 8 Reader to display the file, I get a "Sorry, can't display this file message". Likewise, I cannot display the file using Adobe software.

Hi, i have this problem that i cannot solve. i know why it happened but i was kinda trying stuff without really knowing what i was doing, so now i turn to this forum cause i tried all i could think/find and i still cant solve my mistake.

I had two HD,
C: with XP pro sp3 and linux (dual boot)
D: formated in ntfs with all extra data (songs, video, reports, receipt etc..)

When i had these two working normally, i needed to restrict the access of the second HD (the D to only one computer on the network so i messed around with the permission. I ended up deleting the whole list;
it was looking like this (under the security tab of the HD properties)
"User" X\username"

So i deleted these, it gave me problems , then i found how to re-take owner ship. but i only re-added

"User" X\username

i could then again access my files on the D: . but i still couldnt share my files as i wanted for some reason. so i decided to re-install windows...big mistake!!

I formated the C:, re-installed windows on it, no problem with that. But now i see the second HD in windows explorer as RAW and access is denied. Meaning the HD is detected and listed there, but the used space and total space amount is not showing, if i click properties, instead of NTFS its says RAW. If i try to open it to explore the content, i get an access denied message.

I am having an issue with my pc not allowing other software within bleeping.com to run/install
(see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/498446/cannot-able-to-run-antimalware-like-superantispyware-mbam-or-even-dds/).
It may be due to permissions violations, but I have set them (and the subdirectories) as an administrator user.
I have found I can do some things if I download in any user, but run in safe mode.  But, when I return to the non-safe mode, I cannot do it again...and some things are no longer available.
All this became obvious when a popup taking me to lnksr.com showed up and I could not run McAfee OAS, run SUPERAntispyware free addition and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.  Additionally, Windows tries to update every time (with 7 updates) the pc is shut down...even if I start up and shut down immediately after rebooting.
Updating any of the antivirus and antimalware is futile.

Hey guys,

I'm having a lot of trouble with downloading a file, and am in desperate need of help. The file that I try to download simply says "Failed" in Firefox; Chrome decides to do nothing at all when attempting to download in that browser, and IE constantly states that I do not have the right permissions to run or save the file.

The thing is I do have the right permisisons. I am the admin, the only user, with Full Control on everything; including IE and the Downloads folder. This permissions issue crops up now and then and I never understand why, how can I possibly add more permissions to "Full Control"?

Dropbox also failed due to permissions. I'm out of ideas since all of my browsers are failing miserably!

Also tried an email via my friend. Extracted file with WinRAR and what a surprise, Access is denied.

Help please, I just want to download and install a program. That's it.

A:File Permission Access Denied

This should likely be in the MS / Windows board. The permissions in question are very likely pertaining to the user account. Most likely the user profile or Windows itself is corrupted. You could try creating a new account and adding Admin rights to that account. That's the extent of my Windows profile expertise.

To begin with I hope this is the right forum to present my issue. I've read some post's and cannot make heads or tails of most. I'm not very tecchy. I am running WinXP-Pro (SP3) and have an external HD (372GB). Somehow, the majority of my data (folders and files) on this drive has been moved to a LONG numbered folder and made inaccessible to me. I have paid a couple of online services for tech support and they cannot restore my accessibility to this data.

I am told that someone with a Linux system can access the data on this drive and change the permissions enabling me access again. A Windows based system will not work. They would have to copy and paste the data into new folders. I'm not a tech and really don't know what they are talking about. I am just echoing what was said to me. I don't even know if what I have been told is valid or not. Is there someone here with knowledge of both Windows and Linux that can at least tell me if this is true or not. I don't want to continue wasting my time and money if I'm only spinning my wheels.

What I do know, is that I don't have the money to be spending on services that in the end tell me, "Oh well, we can't help you, but if you go here, they will." This, and only to be played the same tune at the next stop! I don't have the resources to continue paying out and not getting results.

Can someone point me to a service that can help me. What I have been denied access to is very important to me and I am at a loss here. ... Read more

I also tried running the rm command in the windows powershell (admin) but that did not work either. It is nothing important and is only a .exe to a game which was leftover from an uninstall.

HI there! I am new to this website and so ask forgiveness for any mistakes I do make.
I'm running a windows 7 home basic 64-bit system on a laptop and have had it for about 2 years now, evverything has been working perfectly fine, up until yesterday where all of a sudden, I couldn't access my files and it wouldn't allow me to intall new programs where it loads up an error saying ''Unable to write file, access denied error code 5'', also it wouldn't allow me to open any of my files, saying I do not have the correct permissions to access these folders although I'm using the administrator account (which is the only one on this laptop). My antivirus [AVG 2013] does not open up anymore for some reason and cannot be uninstalled, I had two other ''pc-friendly'' programs which worked alongside AVG perfect, Advanced system care 7 and Baidu PCFaster, both of them were deleted I think, I can not open them and I tried re-installing both, got the ''Cannot write file'' error. That about sums up the mess I'm in, appreciate your help a lot!

Something, that I could just right click the Ultima Online 2D directory, and set access to everyone, and it would set everyone access throughout all directories and files throughout.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

@="Reset Permissions to Everyone"

@="cacls.exe \"%L\" /G Everyone:F"

A:Access Denied folder/directory?

Ok. i solved my own problem and yes, the wildcard works/ed

I used cacls.exe *.* /G EVERYONE:F and it worked. seems to be working fine. I just had to CD \Program Files\Ultima Online 2D\ from the C:\ prompt

All three users, Barb, Bob, Brian, in the advertising department received 'denied access' and 'you need permission to perform this action' while attempting to access the share folder-files 'srv-adv' on the domain server 2008 r2.

In the share security I gave Barb, Bob, Brian and the administrator full control. That did not work. I received 'denied access' and 'you need permission to perform this action'.
However after I added and gave Everyone full control the three workers in advertising were able to access the shared folders and files. I thought by given just the advertising workers full permission that would have been sufficient. Not so, I had to add Everyone with full permissions.

I then created an 'advertising' group and added to that group Administrator, Barb, Bob, Brian and gave them full permissions.

I am stuck at this point. Do I remove from the share 'srv-adv' each user and then add the group 'advertising' to the share? What I want to do is to have the users added to advertising group unfettered access to the share 'srv-adv'.

And because I encountered 'denied access' and 'you need permission to perform this action' what "member of" do I add to advertising group without having to add 'Everyone' with full permissions?

PS I created only the group 'advertising' and did not create a 'group policy'. I don't know is that makes a difference.


A:you need permission to perform this action with access denied at share

Go through Setup Shared Folder in Windows Server 2012 to see if sharing is setup properly.

However, check whether these users/group has sufficient NTFS permissions too (security tab)

I built a new desktop and did a clean Windows 7 64-bit install. I hooked up the hard drive from my old PC, which had XP on it, so I could copy all the files over to my new hard drive. But when I try, I keep getting errors that I don't have permission to access the file or copy the file. I was trying to do it for specific folders, but then I still needed to go through the process to ask for permission for each individual file inside the folder! So I changed the security settings for the entire drive by right clicking E:/, going to security and changing the permission for "Everyone" and checked the box "full control," which then checks all the boxes. And yet, when I try to copy folders from my old My Documents, it's still giving me error messages. I don't want any security settings at all. No one else is ever going to use this computer. But at the very least I need to copy these files. Please tell me how to do this, thanks in advance.

I am trying to download a purchased copy of the Chicago Manual of Style software. I have successfully been able to load this onto my laptop which is running Vista Home Premium, 32 bit Dell Inspiron.

The problem: I have attempted to load the same software on my desktop (HP Pavillion a6220n, 32 bit, Vista Home Premium). My computer will not allow the disc to be loaded. I receive the following error message:

C: \Windows\SYSTEM 32\CONFIG.NT. Error Code 0x0. You do not have sufficient privilege to access this file. See your system administrator. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

Although the software does not indicate it is compatible with Vista, it loaded perfectly on the laptop. I can only guess that my desktop recognizes that the program is not Vista compatible or it needs a patch of some sort. If so, I couldn't find it on the University of Chicago's Manual of Style web page. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

We have a problem here. We use Windows 98 and vista business edition in a network.

We want to use vista pc as a file share for a vb application. That is we want to keep the access database file on the vista and applications on win 98 (SE) machines.

But we are unable to do that.

We tried the following:

1. Accessing from vista to either XP or 98 is perfectly OK. Copying, editing, deletions everything is possible.

2. Accessing from 98 to XP is perfectly OK as above.

3. Accessing from 98 to vista, following problems are observed

(Drive on Vista used for file share is FAT 32):

* Pinging is OK

* Shared folders on vista are visible

* When double clicking on the folder, 98 system hangs

* Public folders on Vista are accessible sometimes. But not stable.

* Files of tiny size can be opened/copied from 98

Can you test it and help us.

We would like to use the Vista PC as a file share in the network.

I tried to acess a Directory (Application Data) and received a message "Application data not accessible. Access is denied" I checked the file attributes for this directory and found it to be "HSN". I noted several other directories with the same attributes and that I couldn't access any of them (including Documents, Desktop, Start-Menu, Templates). All other directories with attributes like N, SN or AN were accessible).

What does HSN mean and how do I change it so I can access these directories?



A:Directory Access Denied by Explorer, Attribute=HSN

Does anyone have any idea how to change these file attributes?

i was working on permissions, ownership, and auditing. i was wondering, a lot of files deny access regardless of whether
i assume ownership, or so for my group. are those denials logged somewhere so I can delve into the purpose of those files
and reason they are locked? too many to list from system files to individual program files.

changing these setting was tricky too because i belong to a group on the system, that i denied access, while granting myself access. i wound up with denied access. is there a way to fix this security loophole?

yep - that is what the warning says will happen:

What are you attempting to achieve by changing the file permissions?
