Directory Access Denied by Explorer, Attribute=HSN

Q: Directory Access Denied by Explorer, Attribute=HSN

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?

Thanks,

Preferred Solution: Directory Access Denied by Explorer, Attribute=HSN

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.)

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

This just happened in the last week. I have an external hard drive where I keep all my data. Suddenly I am now unable to save, move, delete, etc. I am administrator as well as owner of the files that are being affected...everything on my external. I do not know how or why this read only attribute got applied to my J: drive but I have tried everything that I've read in your forum and I dont know what else to do.
Why would the computer apply read only to an external? It wasn't there last week, I've never had this problem. I first tried the windows route to change permissions and such, failed, then i used the elevated command prompt and attrib variations that should have corrected the situation, failed. The last thing I got before i was forced to quit trying for the moment is when i applied the attrib cmds to all subfiles and folders; at first it said something about hidden files so i placed the -H in front and suddenly the screen was filling with all of the file on the external, but saying that it could not access the files.....bottom line is that i got down as far as i've been able to figure out by reading the posts here and the last thing that happened was that it finally was able to get to the files but came back with "access denied" on every file and folderl

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

Created a directory d:\Videos.

Shared it with Everyone with full read/write/change permissions.

Despite being totally open to the (home) network, I cannot access it.

I suspect this will always be the case with a new directory. How can I remove the padlock? I must have been able to do it before as there are no problems with directories which are already shared, but I don't recall having this difficulty when setting these up.

A:New Directory is Access Denied to Network

Have you tried going into the Security settings? When sharing drives you need to set up the standard permissions and also the security settings will need some adjusting.

Well....I did an uninstall/reinstall today of Ultima Online....backed up my Desktop (containing profiles/macros for my characters) directory to my desktop of course, and after the install, slapped it back into the Ultima Online 2D directory and I got Access Denied all over the place when trying to browse the desktop directory that i pasted into the Ultima Online 2D directory.....and it's really annoying cause i have to go open each folder manually, Select All, then Right click, Set access to everyone, for EACH FOLDER and every file within each folder.....between 3-4 different "accounts" and different "servers" and 5 characters on each account, that's a lot of selecting, right clicking and setting to everyone access.....sooo....lol.

On another forum, a regedit trick was posted to access the CACLS.exe file from the right click context menu to set the files/directories to "Everyone" and I wanted to know if it is possible to use a wildcard *.* in the following regedit. 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.

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?

Following a hardware upgrade we reinstalled software and attempted to restore data from the old drive now housed in an external caddy. Everything was able to be accessed apart from payroll backups.

The backup payroll files, indeed all the files within the payroll directory can not be moved even using Windows Explorer...the error message "Access Denied Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use" keeps appearing. No other files on the drive seem to be affected.

Is there any way we can change the access rights to this directory? The software in question is Sage Payroll (current version).

Hello folks,

I know similar questions have been asked but I "might" have a unique one. What I have been trying to do is to copy the "C:\Users", "C:\Program Files", & "C:\Program Files (x86)" to another clean hard drive "D:\".

I'm doing this to make more room for the OS in the C: drive while date will be in the D: drive. Now I have successfully robocopy Program Files & Program Files (x86). I also have copied most of the Users directory but for this stubborn Real\update directory. This is I think the real player program. I get this Access Denied and "Error 5" error. I am in elevated command prompt. I achieved this via the Repair your computer prompt on the Windows install DVD.

I also have rmdir for Program Files & Program Files and have made a mklink for both of them so windows knows where they will be. But I have not did a full boot because I don't think windows will access my Users directory because they have been moved over to the new drive. What I can only do will have to be via the command prompt.

I can't make a mklink for Users because I get an error saying something about duplicate areas? What I was trying to do is go to this Real\update directory but even trying to access that directory via cd commands will not work, giving me a access denied. Again I am in elevated command prompt "Administrator:X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe How can I get to that directory. I just want... Read more

You probably just can't move your program files due to the possibility of config files and registry entries that are looking for your programs on the c drive since that's where they where installed. They should be reinstalled if you want to move them. Also if you move the profiles folder (under c:\user) it will break your profiles and you will need to change the location in the registry. I suggest that you put everything back and just move your personal files, music, pics, & videos on another drive. That should free up a lot of space.

Hi Iray007, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The Windows system folders Program Files, Program Files (x86), Windows and ProgramData are protected and by default the user cannot create / save anything inside them without taking the ownership of these folders or using the built-in administrator rights.

It is not recommend to use these protected system folders for saving program output or personal files. You should create and save your projects on some other location, for instance create a folder in your personal user folder for this purpose (C:\Users\Your_Username\MyProjects).

I loved the way that XP would allow you to organize the Start Menu for each user. Windows 7 won't even allow me to open the Start Menu for ANY user. I am set-up as an administrator, have granted myself full access - I've even run Explorer as an administrator, but still Windows won't let me in. I can't even access the Startup folder to add a program.

You will find the start menu folder under c:\users\<your user name>\appdata\roaming\Microsoft\Windows\
The start menu under users\<your user name>\ is a junction. It is not a real folder. It is there to allow legacy programs to interface with the new folder structure under Windows 7.

It sounds like you're using a third party firewall. explorer.exe wouldn't normally need to ask permission unless you had already restricted it or unless it is malware.

Note: The explorer.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows. In other cases, explorer.exe is a virus, spyware, Trojan or worm!

* Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard.
* Select the Safe Mode option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.

Right click on Start>Explore> Windows> scroll down on the right side screen and right click on explorer.exe> Propertied> make sure it's identified as 'Windows Explorer.'

If ID is OK, open Programs section of the firewall and reset access for explorer.exe.

Hello.

I was online for most of the day and everything was fine until I got a minor Firefox update for applications, after skipping the process I attempted to go into Google where it wouldn't load. I realized later that all websites except Google and Youtube seems to work.

So I tried to use my Internet Explorer to figure out whether it was a problem with my Firefox, and I realized my homepage was set to a random Chinese site I had never been to instead of yahoo. I attempted to go into Google with IE but it still did not work. After closing the IE... I attempted to reopen it after so I could change the homepage, but a pop up would say access is denied.

after restarting my computer.. I managed to get Google and Youtube to work currently on Firefox, however it still says access is denied for my IE.

My computer is using Windows XP Service Pack 2.

Thank You.

hi there!

so, basically, background information on this problem:

- we have three main computers; mine, running Ubuntu, the downstairs one, running XP, and the upstairs one, also running XP.

Last night I woke up around 2AM (horray being sick!) and wandered downstairs to find that my computer was without Internet access, as was the XP computer... and the XP computer had no desktop icons/taskbar. i was asking my step-dad who was trying to fix it and he said that he had just been watching fancast when (I assume) the computer restarted... without a desktop. my mother also told me when I got home today that there had been a McAfee popup while she was trying to use the computer asking her if she wanted to restart; apparently she did, still no desktop.

SO I ended up trying to fix it (thought it would be simply ctrl+alt+del, start explorer, I had the issue loads when I ran XP)... and I do get task manager when pressing ctrl+alt+del (horray!), but trying to run explorer.exe results in an access denied message. same if I try from command prompt (which also functions).

I also noticed after using the browse dialog in Task Manager's run...thing that the icon for My Computer on the side panel was missing; just had the regular old broken image thing and the "My Computer" text. I poked around in the running processes and didn't really see anything fishy.


Right now I can only get online with an Ubuntu liveCD on the XP computer. The fact that this computer's conne... Read more

Hi,
recently we have had some problems with users of Windows 7x64 Enterprise getting an "Access is denied" error when trying to open Windows Explorer using the taskbar shortcut. Also they seem to have additional networking problems in this cases such
as Citrix Receiver is starting but not connecting.
All clients are members of our Level 2008R2 AD. Problem can be solved by restarting the Client or simply wait for 5-10min until problems with Explorer (and network if occurred) just vanish. No entries in event viewer on client or domain controller. Problems
happened on clients with and (for testing) without AntiVirus (TM Oscan).
Funny fact: Explorer can always be accessed using right click on start -> open windows explorer. Error occurs randomly and not for all users, newer and older installations/hardware, no matter if desktop or laptop, wireless or LAN connected.

Things we have been trying:
- checked permissions on explorer.exe
- checked permission on shortcut folder (%appdata%\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar)
- checked all available event viewer or log files on domain controllers and clients
- uninstalled AntiVirus
- uninstalled CCM Client (thought it might be a problem with to be applied Windows Updates on client start up)
- created new local user profile

I think I have a really bad rootkit on my computer. It started over a week ago when I accidentally clicked on *something* while browsing with Firefox. I can't be sure what that was since I wasn't looking at the computer - my hand hit the mouse button by accident as I was getting up. I know I only had my Yahoo Mail and Facebook up at the time, so it was probably one of their ads. <frown> Anyway immediately a popup came up and said there was a virus and click Next to remove it (or someting like that). The options were "next" and "cancel" but I went for the "X" on the top right. A bunch of new tabs popped up after that -I got mad and impatient and just rebooted and did a proper shut down after that.

The next morning my CPU usage just went through the roof. The culprit was svchost.exe. I tried a Restore and went 2 days back just to be on the safe side. That did NOTHING. That freaked me out! The only way I could operate was by continually shutting off svchost.exe through task manager, which I had to do like every 5 minutes. I was also started getting new tabs popping up in Firefox with all these obviously bogus websites selling just about everything. Safe Mode with Networking fixed it - or at least it seemed to.

A while back I was playing around with the security permissions of a folder on my hard drive. I don't know how, but I blocked myself from accessing the folder. I was easily able to regain access by:
1. Right clicking, going to Properties
2. clicking on the Security tab
3. clicking OK on the message saying I don't have the permissions to edit the settings
4. adding myself as the owner in the Advanced settings, then backing out of the properties
5. going back into properties and giving Users full control.

This worked and I was able to access the folder again. The problem I am having is I have to do this for EVERY FOLDER AND FILE that is within this folder. Is there anyway I can grant myself Full Control over this folder and include the sub folders and files in that, so I don't have to edit each file? I have over 16,500 files and over 600 folders. It would take FOREVER to edit each one.
 

A:Access Denied to files in Windows Explorer

Right click on the folder and go to Properties. Click the Security tab and click Advanced. Make sure the checkmark is there that says "Inherit from parent the permission entries that apply to child objects. Include theses with entries explicicty defined here." Select eh current user and click edit and make sure that you are not denied on all the permissions. If you want to check what rights the profile you are using has, Right click on My Computer and go to Manage. Click on Users and Groups and click the Users. Make sure the users you want have admin privledges to access files and folders and log out. Log in as one of those profiles and see if that works.

For some reason, the folders "my music", "my pictures", and "my videos" get the error "access is denied" in windows explorer/documents/.
I've checked in properties/security and I have full access to the folders as admin. and as the individual user that I'm logged in as.
 
We recently upgraded from windows xp pro to vista and had a few problems with our antivirus program. We had been using avira free antivir but it caused a conflict with online armor firewall so we switched to avg free. I ran some virus scans a couple of days ago and adwcleaner found about 8 items, and eset found around 14. This was unusual - when we were running xp and avira we never got this many.

Hi all,

I'm slightly embarrassed to be posting here as a 10 year support tech, but I have been crippled by a virus/trojan which has disabled my PC's functionality. It started when I was at work; a roomate infected the PC and left it running all day becoming more and more infected until I got home.

Explorer does not run, I can't browse to any hard drive or cd-rom, and when attempting to install SAS, StopZilla, Symantec (already installed but crashes on run), or any other AV software I receive the message "Your system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"

I have attempted going to safe mode to no avail, the problem persists there as well. A work-around I've found is opening the dos shell from task manager which still works, but I can't get into the control panel to change or look at any administration settings or group policies due to explorer not openning when I attempt to run it.

I was able to download a bitdefender recovery CD which got over a hundred malware files disinfected, I quarunteened the ones it couldn't repair. However the version of linux bitdefender boots off of cannot recognize my on-board ethernet card and I was unable to update the virus definitions, and the basic problems of not being able to run any AV software, navigate to any AV-related site, or even manually execute explorer.exe still remain.

Greetings forums' readers & helpers, ٩̢ ̗(Ӧ̮Ӧ)̢ ̗۶

The search feature in the Explorer of Windows 8 is not as strait forward, simple and reliable as the previous versions (even if the search in the sub-folders is selected, it doesn't always find something that are in them.)

So, I need a way to list in the Explorer all the files whose Attributes are set to ?A?.

This is to find in one command which files (and in which sub-directory) I did not backup yet, instead of looking for them in every folder after changing the view to ?Details?. You see, my backup process is in three steps:

① Once the chosen folder in the Explorer is in the ?Details? view, I click on the ?Attribute? tab, which brings all the ?A? on top.

② I select and drag them to an external drive.

③ Then, I change the attribute property of those selected files, i.e., from ?A? to ?N?.

 ٩̢ ̗(̾̈́͡◑̾̈́̈́͜ ̾̈́̈́͡◑̾̈́)̢ ̗۶It would be much quicker to select-drag them directly from the results and then, to change their attributes without having to go to their respective folders.

Regards and thanks, ?̒ ̡͡ ʅ

Either command line or a file manager that can collect files by the archive attribute would be easier as that's what it was there for. There are many free file managers. Or you could do RoboCopy or RichCopy to recursively gather all files with archive bit set throughout a folder tree.

Good morning.

I have a computer system that has had multiple viruses over the past 6 months. It seems like everytime I clean it, another virus pops up, almost always of the fake anti-virus variety.

This week I was called into the users office, and found the system in a loop. Starting Windows XP, then rebooting. After trying multiple times to get into safe mode, or boot normally, or anything I resorted to using the Windows XP cd and repairing the XP installation. This at least allowed me to boot into Windows again, but there are still issues.

I can not get into Internet Explorer, clicking on the icon results in "Internet Explorer has encountered a problen and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

The display drivers are not installed, and any attempt to install them results in an error stating that access is denied. Looking at the serupapi log, i can see that access is being denied when trying to do anything with igfxcui in the registry. If I browse to that location in regedit, i can not see the properties because I don't have access to it. (I am logged in as the administrator by the way).

I have installed Google Chrome as a way to get online with this sytem, and have had sporadic instances where I am being redirected to the wrong website after clicking a link in Google.

I have scanned the system with MBAM, SuperAntiSpyware, and AVG without any luck.

Windows XP has reached end of life 2 years ago... It is an insecure Operating System and should no longer be used especially online.
The Dimension 2400 is weak hardware (Pentium 4 Processor, IDE hard drive, DDR RAM) from 2003! so 13 years old! Its not worthwhile running a modern Operating System on it and below minimum system requirements.

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.

I have cleaned the system, and show no virus activity... but I'm still having issues.Late last week the system was stuck in a loop, it wouldn't boot to Windows at all (no safe mode, no normal mode). I resorted to a Windows repair from the install disk. It worked... to a certain degree. I am now able to get into Windows, but can not open IE and I can not install a display driver.I am unable to access Windows Update, but was able to set automatic updates to install lots of updates including SP3, but I am still unable to make any changes.Initially when I attempted to open IE I would get a window saying that IE had to close instantly. I attempted to reinstall IE, and I attempted to install a newer version of IE. Neither worked. If I chose to install the updates with the install I would get an access denied error, if I chose not to install the updates with the install it would look like it worked, but now when I click on IE I get "Error loading C:\WINDOWS\System32\inetcpl.cpl. The operating system cannot run %1"In device manager, I have no drivers installed on my display adapter. If I try to update it, it looks like it's going to install... but then I get "Cannot install the hardware. Access is Denied".Any assistance or insight into this would be appreciated.

Access control configuration prevents this request.
