Unable to access IE, access denied when updating display drivers, no windows update

Q: Unable to access IE, access denied when updating display drivers, no windows update

Good morning,I have a system that has had numerous issues, mainly virus related. 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.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

On any system with a number of issues...it's often better to do a clean install to wipe the slate clean, rather than hope that you have patched all known and unknown issues, IMO.

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.

I have been working on running the Windows Updates, bringing it up to SP3, etc. There... Read more

I save a lot of files as PDFs. Recently, I saved a financial document to PDF and it seems to be secured somehow. It's a pdf. Adobe complains opening it, complaining "There was an error opening this document. Access denied." Instead of opening it with a right-click, I tried starting Adobe and selecting the file. The message was similar but different - "You don't have permission to open this file. Contact the file owner or an administrator to obtain permission."

I noticed from the file properties that instead of a user owning the file, there is a zero value for the owner ID.

I try to change the owner using the following steps:Right click the file and select Properties
Select Security tabGet prompted "To continue, you must be an administrative user with permission to view this object's security properties. Do you want to continue?"

I select Continue - to elevate to admin privilegesI get the Owner tab message:
"You do not have permission to view this object's security properties. To view its security properties, you can try taking ownership of the object. ....
To try taking ownership of the object, select an account from the last, and then click OK."
Also note that under Current owner: it reports
Unable to display current owner.

Hi everyone - I have a beauty if anyone can help.

Story so far ( I'll try to keep it short )

had drive problems with PC so got new SSD drives and a Hybrid drive.
All new drives so did tortuous route install win7 - upgrade to win 8.0 all worked then started acting up. My tech support worked on it for 2 days and gave up said I should backup and do a clean install from start. So I did.
Not yet put any backup files on so only operating system and devices (printer, wireless keyboard/mouse, wireless headset and 3webcams ( One Pluscom and two PCline ) checked device manager and found cameras with yellow exclamation mark and checked properties and saw this webcam.JPG . Contacted my tech support again they gave up after 20 mins and guess what they suggested. gave appropriate answer which ended in off and went to Microsoft answer desk. After chatting for 1 hour 40 still no further other than some services which should have been running were not so he suggested starting services and check windows update. download, install and do a reboot and see what happens. If I would purchase a support plan from them then they would connect to my PC and troubleshoot and sort.

Not willing / able to pay $150 at moment so I have come to the REAL expert for some help.

I am obviously logged in as admin as I am the only user who Can use PC and checked permissions which are OK all users having full access.

Hoping someone has an idea before I go completely bald / mad ( as in do lally not angry )

Please confirm that the command that is attempting to execute is the following:
 
 

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
This command is trying to enable task manager but the command prompt that is trying to enable task manager does not have the permissions to do that.
 
 
Please try the following:
 
Click Start
Type cmd
Right click cmd.exe
Select Run as administrator
type "REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f"

I found a post on this site by MOXYLL (http://www.techsupportforum.com/show...t=branches.inf) in which she suggested changing the following file to read/write from read only:

So I started looking through the Dell help on my computer. I'm not as savvy as I'd like to be and while trying to fix the issue myself I did something that I shouldn't have. First, I tried system restore to go back to a later date but it wouldn't let me no mater which date I tried. Then,I followed a suggestion regarding the registries. HUGE mistake! Now my computer is stuck in a boot loop. I obviously need to repopulate my hives but have no idea how. When the computer starts the Windows XP logo pops up. Then a box pops up saying lsass.exe access denied a proccess has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights. When I click ok It restarts. The Dell logo pops up then the Windows XP logo and then the access denied again. Ive tried to start in last known good configuration. Safe mode. System restore. But, i keep ending back in the loop.

A:lsass.exe Access Denied a process has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights

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.
If on a budget you are best to buy a second hand OptiPlex 780 with a Windows 7 OEM license (which can be used for a free Windows 10 upgrade).

Hi, everyone,

I'm mostly a Linux guy these days, so I'm no longer clued up about even simple Windows issues. Bear with me.

I have one PC running Vista (home basic), one running XP (professional) and one running Windows 7 (home basic). There is a printer connected to the Vista box, which is shared.

On the XP box I can both see and use the printer on the Vista box (i.e. a "net view \\vistabox" shows the printer, and under "printers and faxes" I can install and use it).

On the Windows 7 box, however, I can see the Vista box (i.e. a "net view" shows it in the list of available PCs on the network) but a "net view \\vistabox" gives me an "access denied" error.

The Windows 7 machine has a password on it, the Vista and XP machines don't. All machines are on the same workgroup name (which is "WORKGROUP"). On the XP box I don't need a password to access the shared printer on the Vista machine; it just works.

Extensive Googling has failed to render enlightenment, nor has browsing this forum. I'm sure it has something to do with security and passwords, somewhere, somehow, but I have no idea in which direction to look for it, let alone fix it. I have also read some things about workgroups and homegroups not being the same in Windows 7, but I'm not sure if this is correct (and if so, relevant).

All suggestions on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I just tried to install the latest iTunes update, but keep getting an error when it tries to access the C:\Program Files\iPod folder.

When I try to access the iPod folder directly through Windows Explorer, I get "Access is denied".

The same happens when logged in with the system administrator account.

When I right-click the folder and choose Properties > Security, the Current owner field shows "Unable to display current owner." And it won't allow either of the listed administrator accounts to take ownership.

When I choose Properties > Security > Advanced > Owner, the Current owner field also shows "Unable to display current owner." And it won't allow me to Edit it either.

I've tried opening the Command Prompt as the administrator, and deleting the folder, but it won't allow me to do that either.

Any ideas on how to forcefully take ownership and/or delete this folder?

2. Windows 7 : kb4012212 and kb4012215
3. Windows 8 : kb4012213 and kb4012216

After installing the Windows update, these problems occur :
1. Windows XP cannot access Windows 7/8 through \\computername or \\ipnumber\foldername, cannot access file sharing and printer sharing
Error message: "Windows cannot find [\\computername\] ....."



2. Windows 7/8 cannot access Windows XP through \\computername or \\ipnumber\foldername, cannot access file sharing and printer sharing
a. Error message (when access updated XP) : diagnose : "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection"

b. Error message (when access non-updated XP) : just usual "Windows cannot access [\\computername\]", no diagnose message.



This is what I've got and done :
1. Ping computername or ipnumber from command prompt is no problem. Windows XP can ping Windows 7/8, vice versa.

Hello, when I go to install any device driver, I receive an "Access Denied" failure message. I checked the permissions on the source files and the existing files being replaced, and I have full control (logged in as local admin). I then removed it from its
OU(<ou#1>) and restarted to see if it was the group policy, and I was able to install the same source driver files. I did a gpresult on <ou#1> and looked through the group policy being applied, but could not find anything related to driver installation.
I'll gladly upload/share the group policy to be looked at, but I can't seem to post it with this message. 
After putting it back in <ou#1>, I found that the driver store files at C:\windows\system32\driverstore\*.dat only had permissions for SYSTEM(but the admin group owned the files). Using SubInAcl, I added full control to these files for the admin group,
which then allowed me to install/update drivers. But when I restart the computer, the permissions for those 5 driver store files are reset back to SYSTEM=full control, owner=admin group. 
How can I stop the permissions from being reset on these 5 files when the system is restarted? *Note that this is in an Enterprise environment

A:Access denied installing drivers as Admin

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for the very relevant help, but I've figured out the problem. After sifting through my group policy, I found that it was the point and print restrictions in the group policy that was preventing me from installing
drivers.

My parents have a linksys USB wifi network adapter, and for some reason it just stopped working last night out of nowhere...It's running on an XP Pro system.

But I've gone into Device Manager to try and "reinstall" the driver, and using the (Automatic) setting, I'm ending up with an access denied error.

I am logged into an Administrator account too...I even went as far as booting into minimal network/Safe mode, to try and install it but still no go; same error; stating Im not an Administrator.

And for some reason it appears my "Administrator" account (only appears on the login list in Safe Mode) has been password protected....
So either, I need to figure out what is locking MY Administrator account from installing these drivers, or find a way to reset the "Administrator" account password.

It's an Acer desktop, going on 2 years old in August (though who knows how long it was on their shelf )

I've even went as far as trying to plug it into other USB ports, thinking some were bad, but my USB pen drive works fine in them so they aren't faulty ports.

Have a new Vista Premium system. It's an HP Pavilion a6250z. My monitor is an HP w2007. Display Adapter is NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT with 512MB. 3GB RAM. Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+ 2.4 GHz.

Everything seems to be running great except that I cannot get the drivers for the monitor to install. No matter what I try, I get either an error has occured or Access Denied when I attempt to run the installation program.

When I look at my display properties it shows the correct monitor, however it shows there being no driver. In Device Manager the Monitor shows under Other Devices. My monitor seems to work ok...but there is a hugely noticiable quality difference between the display when connected to the new Vista machine and the older XP machine.

I've been through forums all over the net and tried everything I've found.

I've tried:

- Right-Click Run as Admin
- Creating/Using the Super Administrator Account
- Uninstalling Monitor and Detecting Hardware Changes
- Updating Driver from Display Properties
- Updating Driver from Device Manager
- Uninstalling Monitor, Rebooting in Safe-Mode, Logging in as Super Admin
- I've installed directly from CD
- Copied files to desktop and ran
- Downloaded new drivers directly from HP and ran from desktop
- I've even tried running the driver install in XP SP2 compat mode...just to be sure

I've done everything I can think of. Anyone have any suggestions? I really hate to have to uninstall everything and load an old copy of XP instead.

A:Access Denied When Installing Monitor Drivers

I presume that you've got the 32 bit version of Vista and not the 64 bit version? If so....Have you downloaded the drivers from this link? http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...289&lang=enHave you updated your nVidia display drivers also? Here's a link to them: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_163.75.htmlIf you have the 64 bit version, then it appears that HP doesn't have a 64 bit driver for your monitor (here's the 64 bit nVidia drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x64_163.75.html ) - so you won't be able to install it that way. Maybe you can find out who actually built the monitor for HP to see if there are 64 bit drivers at their website.The following link is the last page of a 32 page topic about your monitor - it seems to indicate that there are some issues with the monitor depending upon which LCD screen you've got: http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=...531&page=32

I started on this problem by opening an incident with Microsoft. Microsoft tried a few things and then suggested the possibility of virus/malware. Several days ago, Microsoft suggested uninstalling SP3. I did that to no avail. I since have reinstalled SP3 and the system should be current on Microsoft updates. Automatic Updates appears to be working. No symptoms have changed.

I moved to Bleeping Computer for virus/malware help. I have previous entries with this same title in 2 Bleeping Computer forums. I started in the Windows XP Home and Professional and then moved to the Am I Infected forum.

I observe 3 symptoms:

1) IE 7.0 is not recognized as a supported browser by the Windows Update website.

2) Doing a Google search with either IE 7.0 or FireFox 3.0.5 may yield links to questionable websites.

3) Attempting to open the System Restore tab on Systems Properties yields an error. This was a later discovery in the investigation process. There's a link to an image in the earlier posts.

I posted under this same topic in the Windows XP Home & Professional Forum several days ago. There is a great deal of background info to be found there. I won't replicate it here.

After trouble shooting this as a "broken" copy of IE 7.0, I am now begininning to suspect that malware or the results of previous malware are involved.

This PC belongs to a teenager and is on loan to me to "fix". I "fixed" it a few weeks back using MalwareBytes to remove something that identified itself in pop-ups as "Windows Network Security". All was well for a week or so and then I got another call. This time it was more pop-ups and the symptom that Google searches turned up strange websites. I took the PC back. When I booted it up I got no pop-ups and no bad Google searches. I ran MalwareBytes with no findings. I ran Windows Defender with no findings. I then ran a full scan using Norton Internet Security 2009. There were 2 findings - a "tracking cookie" and "Downloader.Mislead/App". Both were "resolved" by NIS 2009.

It is known that the PC has been infected in the past.

Suggestions as to where to go from here?

The problem is that Windows Update will not run. When clicked from Internet Explorer Tools list the computer will display ?can not display page, do you want to diagnose connection problem? page.
Searching for ?Windows Update? in Google and clicking through to the site I get the same ?can not display page? message.
I was able to get to the Microsoft Support site, but Windows Update would not function.

In addition to that problem the computer seems to try to redirect the browser. The redirect seems to fail and an error message pops up that say can not find hppt://(the address that follows is a long string of gibberish). When I close the error window a new instance of the Internet explorer opens. I have a screen shot of the error message if that would be helpful.

The iPhone syncs ok with iTunes as the "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver" is ok in Device Manager & I can transfer music & videos etc



However the "iPhone" shows an exclamation mark in Device Manager - which is the camera drivers, meaning it doesn't show as a drive in My Computer.

Whenever I plug my iPhone into the USB it always comes up with new hardware found & tries to locate the drivers, it does this ok but when installing them it always come back with the message "access is Denied" I have tried reinstalling them from within Device Manager as well but get the same message.



I have also plugged in a USB card reader previously unused on the laptop to check if it was just my iPhone & again it finds it as new hardware & tries to install the drivers but again comes back with "Access is Denied" So it's not related to just my iPhone, it looks like is related to USB devices.

As the title states, I'm unable to delete two files on my computer (inside the folder 'logs' in the screenshot below), as I receive access denied errors. I've tried take ownership, through command prompt (as an administrator), Malware Bytes' File Assassin, and all of them say that I can't even open the file. This is well and truly corrupt, there is absolutely nothing I can do to get rid of it.

When I try to open it via Notepad, I just get a "file.txt does not exist. Attempt to create it?" If I click no, nothing happens and it exits, if I click yes, it says it can't create it.

I've tried through virtually every single option I can think of, from advanced folder permissions to take ownership, and even when I go into the advanced folder settings, and change the read only attribute, it still brings up an access denied error and just ends.

And for some reason, I've just noticed two parent folders with exactly the same name. See the attached screenshot. But whatever I try, on both or either of them, it simply will not delete. I've restarted and rebooted my computer - multiple times - and over multiple days - but it's just well and truly corrupt and nothing I can do will get rid of it.

Recently whenever I have attempted to install virtually any program, I've been constantly receiving this error message "unable to execute file in the temporary directory error 5 access is denied". From several google searches I have understood that the general cause of this error message is a lack of privileges regarding the temp folder. However this has not helped me since I have the permissions required so I cannot give myself them. I've found a few suggestions to use the "hidden" administrator account or make another administrator account and install via those, this does not work either. This has only begun happening recently and I would prefer to fix the issue instead of restoring/formatting.

When I try to close certain processes (like AVG update service, Diskkeeper service, programs for my Lexmark printer, or other programs I don't need running) with taskmanager, it says "Unable to Terminate Process: Access is denied." Yesterday, I uninstalled and reinstalled my video card drivers, when my computer restarted I could close them, but today I can't close them anymore, I didn't do anything between last night and today. I reinstalled the video card drivers, could close those processes, played a game, shut my computer off, went to bed, and when I turned it on in the morning my access was denied again. What could cause something like this? How can I allow myself to close those processes again?

Oh, and my profile is set to administrator, that's not the problem.
 

A:Unable to Terminate Process: Access is denied.

Just a shot in the dark. Are any of these programs set to run in Task Scheduler by another user? This could cause that message to appear.

I have four user accounts on my pc. Recently I have had to reinstall windows, and I set up my users again, but I noticed that the old accounts were still there in windows explorer under documents and settings, even though they don't come up on the screen when the pc starts up. I've deleted three of them as they were just taking up room, but there is one left that I can't remove. A box pops up saying that it is unaccessable and access is denied. Is there a way I can remove this from my pc?

Thanks

Hi:
I attempted to install Print program on XP, however due to 'error' message popping up in the middle of the screen, I failed to install the program.

Error message is following:
An installation Support file.
'C:\DOCLUME~1\LOCAL~\Temp\{909FDB94-8511-47D3-AF00-EEA27FA1173}\
InsUtl.dll'
could not be installed.

Access is denied.
OK

Is this 'dll' loss or what else to blame for?
Thanks for any help on this issue.

A:PIII display garbled. Access Denied eror

Boot into safe mode and go to &#8220;Add Remove Programs&#8221; and uninstall the drivers. Do Not Restart The Computer. Now right click My Computer and select properties, Click the hardware tab and click Device Manager. Click the + button by Display Adapters and then right click the display adapter and uninstall. Now restart the computer and boot to normal mode. You&#8217;ll need to reinstall updated drivers for your card when there.

I have a newly purchased HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One Printer series - J611 which should be working with Windows 7, but when I try to install the device drivers I get a "Access is denied" error.

How can this be bypassed or fixed?

A:Cannot install HP printer drivers - "Access is denied" in Windows 7

Exactly how are you installing the driver?

Make sure the printer is switched off and is not connected by a USB cable.

When you attempt to install the driver, right-click it first and choose Run as Administrator. During the install, you'll be prompted when to switch the printer on and connect it.

You also need to make sure you are installing the 32-bit version of the driver as you have Windows 7 32-bit.

After a new WinXP Pro sp3 installation, I no longer had internet access. I discovered that the network card (Ethernet Controller) wasn't installed. I had the motherboard (Asus P4PE) CD so I tried to install the LAN drivers but everytime I try, whether from the CD or from a folder on the hard drive, I get the same error message telling me that Access is Denied. I've tried in Safe Mode, but that didn't help.

I've checked some User Permissions, in Local Security Policy (Administrative Tools) and I seem to have permission to install and uninstall drivers. But I'm not very familiar with Permissions and Access Rights so I need some help with this.

I've also run Dial-a-fix, but it didn't find any problem with permissions.

Can someone help with this, my computer is pretty useless without internet access.

Thanks, John
 

A:Can't install network card drivers, Access is Denied

I'm now gone into the registry and checked the permissions for PCI. The admin is set for Full Control, and I'm the administrator. I tried changing Everyone else from Read to Full Control permissions, but that didn't make any difference. So I'm still stuck on this.

BTW, I was able to install the Soundmax drivers (integrated sound chip) from the Asus P4PE installation CD.

Hi there,

Just purchased a new system which came with Vista Home Premium installed. On start up I am always getting the message telling me to update my drivers for the HP w2007 monitor. The monitor seems to be working fine, and the properties of the montior say it is 'working properly'. However it says no drivers are detected

When I try to update using the CD supplied with the monitor I get the 80070005 access denied error and therfore cannot install.

Can anyone help? Is my monitor not working optimally? Or is this just an annoyance?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I've been working on a laptop that had some viruses and corrupted system files. I cleaned the computer out and performed a windows repair to correct the problems.

Everything worked and installed fine except for the USB host controller drivers. These are drivers that should install with Windows XP and are already available. When I attempt to reinstall them via device manager, I receive an access denied after it tries to copy over the file. The filename I see before getting this error is USBHUB20.SYS.

I believe that there are some registry entries that may have been affected by the previous viruses that are causing this problem. The user I am logged in as does have admin rights. This machine is running Windows XP Home.

Any ideas on what this registry key might be or whats going on here? Thanks.
 

A:Access denied when installing USB host controller drivers

After just doing a repair install and not knowing anything about the make and model of computer or system specs I would recommend installing the special drivers for chipset, buss, audio, video etc and you can get these drivers from the drivers disk that came with the computer or the manufacturer of the computer or motherboard web site download them burn to CD-R and run them.
