Windows 7 remote access into, access denied

Q: Windows 7 remote access into, access denied

Before updating to windows 7 from XP, remote access was working. Now enableing remote terminal access, we get access denied. The pc trying to gain access are a Vista and 7. The pc being accessed is using a sticky IP. We have been accessing for sometime until upgrade.
This is between 2 cities. NLR has sticky IP and is to be accessed, Searcy had dynamic, class C.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 remote access into, access denied

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.)

Hi,

I have 2 machines at home. One runs Windows 10 and the other Windows 7.

They both have team viewer on them for when I'm away, such as now.

The Windows 10 machine has dropped off the Team Viewer list. I can't even RDP in to in from the W7 machine (RDP as a fall back in case team viewer crashes etc)

Now I've run an IP scan and the IP address which was fixed at .12, seems to have gone to DHCP, checked by the MAC address on the IP scanner. I also guess the time of this crash was roughly 3am, as there is an error log on the W7 machine saying it lost connect to the back up computer.

Now I am wondering if it's a W10 auto update which has reset all the network settings, including the firewall, which has now blocked access to Team Viewer and RDP.

As I'm currently 200 miles away, and cannot get access to these machines physically, is there a way to regain control, or do I have to wait until I'm home and sort this out in its presence!?

Thanks.

Access is denied when attempting to shutdown another computer using the shutdown command:

shutdown.exe /s /m \\COMPUTERNAME /t 00

Result:

Enabling Windows 8 Remote Shutdown from command.

I am using this solution on a home workgroup local network. The solution works for shutdown.exe and psshutdown.exe. It works for Windows 8 and should work for Windows 7.

CHANGE THE FOLLOWING SETTINGS ON THE REMOTE COMPUTER:
Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center, Change Advanced Sharing settings
"Private" enable "Turn on File and Printer sharing"

Add Registry Key

RUN regedt32.exe

Goto:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Right click and add new DWORD

"LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy"=dword:00000001

When user name and password are not the same on both computers change the following on the remote computer:
Change Local Security Policy

RUN secpol.msc

Hello, thanks for reading,
I would like to monitor my Bitlocker deployment though WMI.
I made a VB.NET app that queries the Win32_EncryptableVolume.
When the app is locally launched, it's working; I received the 'driveletter' and the 'protectionstatus'.
When the app queries remotely a machine, the access is denied.
Here is my connection
 Dim Scope As New ManagementScope("\\" & PC & "\ROOT\CIMV2\Security\MicrosoftVolumeEncryption")
 Scope.Connect()
 Dim Query As New ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_EncryptableVolume")
 Dim Searcher As New ManagementObjectSearcher(Scope, Query)
 Dim queryCollection As ManagementObjectCollection = Searcher.Get
 For Each mObject As ManagementObject In queryCollection
  blablabla
 Next
more INFO:
My network has a mix of Win7Pro & Win7Ent.
The local FW is disabled when the machine is on my CN.
With the command 'dcomcnfg', 'COM' security has been adapted to enable the remote access, remote launch and remote activation. I did the same for the DCOM "Windows Management Instrumentation".
Any idea? o_O
Give thanks & praise

Thanks for your comments.
I had a look in the eventvwr and found it was a problem of 'authentication'.
I added this code and everything is ok. I can remotely 'scan' my LAN and have a real-time status of Bitlocker.
Dim myConnectionOptions As New System.Management.ConnectionOptions
With myConnectionOptions
  .Authentication = System.Management.AuthenticationLevel.Connect

End With
Great! Have fun ^-^

Hi,
I'm having quite some troubles shutting down a Win 8.1 x64 computer remotely, using the shutdown command. 
I searched online for solutions and tried several things, mostly the solution [1] seems to boil down to adding the reg-key LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy=1
(i), adding an account on the machine to be shutdown, matching the credentials of the user on the machine shutting down (ii), adding "Everyone" to the "Force
shutdown from a remote system" entry via secpol.msc (iii).
I did (i) and (ii), while (iii) will not work for me since on my remote machine (the one shutting down) I'm logged
on with a user of the company's domain, while the machine to be shut down is not in the domain (and is not supposed to be). Also, the solution I'm looking for should work in different setups as well, thus in the final setup I will most likely be using a diffent
user in a different domain anyways.
Is there no way of simply deactivate all the security stuff and let shutdown do it's work? Security is really not a concern at all in my use case, it just has to work.
Thanks

I have a computer that I want to shutdown remotely via command line (the shutdown -i), and if I have "password enable sharing" turned on I get access denied(5) but if that is turned off it works fine.
How can I get this working again?
I have read that I may need to create a user account with the same username and password of the account on this computer I wish to shutdown, but I have tried this and it does not work, plus having a extra account on either computer is kind of annoying,
isn't there a way I can do it without having the same user account on my two PCs? Maybe like just using the username and password of the remote computer directly without actually having that account created on my PC?

A:Remote shutdown Access Denied (5)

Hello,
You can alternatively add your matching credentials to the server or computer you are trying to shut down remotely and make sure that the user has sufficient local privileges to perform a shutdown. I checked the shutdown switches but I could not find a switch
that lets you enter alternate credentials for the shutdown.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 Intel Pentium running Windows XP  sp3 and have been getting tons of junk mail. I ran Avast, malware bytes &spybot. Nothing found. 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.

So, I tried ordering some disks that I thought may be able to help while I've been reading through threads for information.

But, I purchased a Knoppix 7.6.1., and system rescue from same CO, & 2 CDs off eBay Windows XP 64 bit & 32 bit as I wasn't sure which was the one I might need.

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).

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.

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

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.

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!

Hello. I have a folder share on my Windows 7 computer and I was trying to access it with a Windows XP Home computer in the house. However, I kept getting an "Access Denied" error whenever I tried to write to the folder. How can I fix this?

Also, sometimes when accessing .zip files and .exe fines from one XP Home computer to another XP Home computer, I get a "Unspecified security risk" and "Access denied" error respectively. How do I fix this?
 

A:Access Denied error when trying access Windows 7 folder from Windows XP

multiple levels of controls here

the XP needs the LLTP service from SP3 to be able to share w/ win7

there are two layers of access for share resources:

the network access
the NTFS access
The simplest solution is to use Simple Sharing and share via the All Users\Shared Documents\ directory. The Admin can set Allow Modifications (or not as needed),
which create the NTFS perms for the <Everyone> group.

So, *IF* you have network access (you can see the shared folder and it's contents),
then the NTFS permissions are the controlling factor.

IF not, the the network access is in control and you need to figure out Simple Sharing vs not-so-simple and those requirements

So I followed the directions and ever since I did that when I open a webpage it goes to a screen that says:

Access control configuration prevents this request.

On top of that I get a similar message when I try to run live update. I have the computer hooked up to a linksys router with high speed internet. Please help.

A:Messed up computer and cannot access internet, page says cache access denied

Hmm, that's a good one. Try reinstalling IE or Firefox, whatever internet software you use. You might have inadvertently deleted an application cache file which the application needs.

Only other thing to do is boot into safe mode and select last know good boot.

I have kinda setup a network with my computer and a laptop which has just been formatted. It now has XP service pack 2 installed and I have to enter the password and username of an account on the laptop in order to access the resources.
Now I can access the laptop using my computer, when the laptop tries to access my computer, and tries to get a file, the message on the title always comes up.

I have unchecked simple file sharing and enabled full access (read/write) on the laptop whose account Im using. But it didnt work.

When opening my computer today, I have noticed a message about migration and program controls and some information about windows NT and windows 3.x This has never popped up and am wondering if this has made any changes to my computer not the laptop.

So Is there a simple way that does not restrict the laptop from getting the resources on my computer??

Hi,
I'm having an issue where when attempting to create a local port, on a remote PC via the Print Management Console in Windows 7, I get an "Access Denied" error message.

All machines are domain joined.Tried with W10 and Server 2008 R2, too - same issue.Firewall (all three states) off.AV solution completely removed.Tried with highest domain admin account.Tried with UAC turned off and on.Ran as admin when launching console.GP - Point and Print Restrictions - Disabled.GP - Allow Print Spooler to accept client connections - Enabled.Print and File Sharing - On.Network Sharing - On.
To clarify, it is simply creating the port element that fails.

Can create TCP/IP ports OK.Can create Local Ports on the local machine OK - just not on remote machines.Can install printer if an existing local port is used, so drivers install OK.Using PowerShell, can use the Add Printer Port command to add the local port, no problems there.
It just seems to be an issue where the console attempts to verify if the said port exists, that the issue occurs.  If a put in an invalid port name in, it will bring up the correct response of "the network name cannot be found".
Cheers!

I was upset that I couldn't save to my C drive so I started messing around trying to find a way. I deleted everythig in group or users names thinking I could just assign the Administrator. Now I can't access anything, I cannot run a system restore, I cannot do a cmd to Run as administrator, so on and so on. I have googled my eyes off trying to find solutions. When I click to run some programs I get "The parameter is incorrect".

A:Denied Access To Set Program Access And Defaults By Rundll32.exe

Hi and welcome.rundll32.exe is a process which executes DLL's and places their libraries into the memory, so they can be used more efficiently by applications. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.Note: rundll32.exe is a process registered as a backdoor vulnerability which may be installed for malicious purposes by an attacker allowing access to your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.This is strange, this might be a malware or it might just be some promblem with the rundll32.exeI would run a scan and see what the scanners find. DON'T remove rundll32.exe, because it is most likely a legitimate file.Regards,ExtremeboyGreat that you figured it out. Can you tell us how you fixed the promblem?

And yet quite possibly another no brainer for you all, I work on a large number of machines for family and friends, mostly 2000 or XP Home and Pro and to be quite honest with you I am not sure what the best way to connect to these machines would be, what I mean is I am soooooo tired of setting up a machine in my shop, running up stairs to my primary machine to either get in remotly or tap into the c:\ drive of the other machine only to realize that I do not have permition, or I do not remember the computer name, or I do not have the password, or I can not log on as the "guest". Do you know what I mean? I get so frustrated when I get the "Access Denied" message. it seems to me I spend more time trying to get into these machines than I do reparing them. So I guess my question would be, once I have the machine setup what is the FASTEST way for me to gain access to that machine from another machine? Lets just focus on XP and 2000, Do I really have to setup a user first to gain access? or is there a quicker way. Thanks.

This morning, I heard a nationally syndicated computer expert state that some Chinese hackers were "getting into" Windows based computers through "Remote Access/Remote Desktop" even if the service is turned off. According to the guru, "They will turn it on for you."
Being very concrete, as well as, somewhat dull concerning computers, I find this hard to believe. Could someone, in layman's terms, tell me the circumstances needed that would allow a hacker to take control of someone's system when a necessary service is turned off ??

I have installed the BT home hub (British Telecom) There are two user accounts on my pc. I am the administrator, and have no problems using the connection to the hub (either wirelessly or by cable) at all!

I do however, have a problem with any other user been able to connect to the internet. I have tried making them and "Administrator" too, and I get the same error message:

Forbidden

You were denied access because;
Access denied by access control list.

My reasoning told me that it might be a software problem, as a dial up connection, and a standard broadband cable connection all worked peviously with the two "Adimistrator", and "restricted" user accounts.

I spoke to BT who decided that it was a microsoft issue...microsoft UK want to charge me ?49 to help as my XP Home Edition wasn't bought from them, it was pre-installed. I contacted Time Computers for help from them, though I am utterly dissapointed in them...I am a novice computer user, but I recognised that my ?1 per minute technical help call was ludicrous...DON'T USE IT! They spend 5 mins getting and checking your details!

1, Since when has creating a shortcut to a connection ever "lifted" an access denied?

2, I was also told to delete the accounts that were not allowed the access. They told me to click on save files, after I had started to delete the account...they got mixed up with the order of how things are done! Luckily I got it halted!

Hello,

I had to rebuild my PC a week or so ago and now cannot access a website that I have always been able to access before.

I keep getting a message saying "Forbidden. Access denied by access control list" but there is absolutely nothing within my access control list restricting this site.

I then went in and added the URL as an allowable site within the access control list thinking that might help and I'm still forbidden from accessing the site.

I've cleaned out my cache and ran Ad-aware to see if that would help and still nothing.

Any suggestions?

Thanks very much.

I'd like to put a .cmd file in my c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup directory, but \Documents and Settings has a lock on it and tells me "Access denied" when I click on it. Is this a job for "Take Ownership" or is there another way? The instructions for "Take Ownership" say not to use it on the C drive, but it's not clear if that applies to the whole drive, or individual files/folders on it. Thanks.

A:"Access denied:" How to overcome denied access to a folder

That is the incorrect path. No need to mess with permissions, I'd advise leaving them alone.

The path you are looking for is C:\Users\<your user account>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Now there is an Issue...I reccomend getting all the data you want off of Drive D and then formatting Drive D and Drive C completely...reinstall the RC afterwards

Wait a sec...I just read that again...can you access the BETA and backup all your data from there?

I've searched the forum and tried solutions suggested in previous posts without success.

My setup is this:-

PC 'A' - Windows XP Pro - cable connection to Netgear router
PC 'B' - Windows 7 Pro - wireless connection.
Laptop 'C' - Windows 7 Premium - wireless connection
Laptop 'D' - Windows XP Pro - cable connection
Netbook 'E' - Windows XP Pro - wireless connection

All machines run AVG Pro but do NOT use the AVG Firewall; instead each relies on the Windows firewall. All have access approved on all HDs for all users of the LAN. When logged on to each machine as the same user - i.e. 'me'.

'A' sees and connects fully with all machines
'B' sees all. Access denied to 'C'. 'D' asks for username/password and doesn't accept anything I enter.
'C' sees and connects fully with all machines
'D' sees all. Access denied to 'C'. All others full connection.
'E' sees all. Access denied to 'C'. 'D' asks for username/password and doesn't accept anything I enter.

I can't make head nor tail of this. All machines see each other; two have full two-way connections; three have access denied to 'C'; two are asked for user/password when trying to connect to 'D'!

Would appreciate any ideas for a solution.
