net share brings up System Error 5 – “Access Is Denied”

Q: net share brings up System Error 5 – “Access Is Denied”

Hi,

I have a "server" that ran win 7 and which I now updated to Win 10. On this server, there is truecrypt installed and a batch file which I call from a remote computer using psexec. This batch file mounts a truecrypt volume and shares this drive on the network. Sharing is done with a lines like this:

if exist E: (net share E=E:\ /GRANT:Name,Full >nul)

However, in win 10 this doesn't work anymore. The problem is that the command

net share E=E:\

can only be issued from an administrator-cmd now. Is there a way to allow using the "net share E=E:" command from a non-admin-commandline (I am hoping for a registry key...)?
Thanks a lot!

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.)

I don't know how but when I changed my laptop network from cable to wireless this share stopped working.

This is the scenario:

Machine 1:
PC
Windows XP
User "Administrador" (the Administrator account for brazilian Windows)

Machine 2:
Laptop
Windows Vista
User "Wesley"
Shared the whole driver D, only accessible by user "Wesley" (removed "Everyone")

The problem is that my Windows XP does not ask for a password before trying to open the "D" share, it just says "Access Denied". Of course, if I add "Everyone" again, it works, but I guess you can see I don't want this.

I've created an account named "Wesley" on my Windows XP to test if it would work, and it did, but all my stuff is on the "Administrador" account.

Is there any way I could get the login window under the share, and not the access denined?

I have a small Windows XP-Pro based file and printer sharing network in my small SOHO. It has worked for years. On rare occasions a PC would become unavailable, or "unseen" by the other PC's in the file share group "MSHOME". Uually if I powered down and brought the PC's up one at a time it resolved itself. Other times I'd have to run the Network Wizard and that might bring back the share. Ask you can tell I am hit and miss and don't really know what I am doing. I work with Linux every day and not Windows networking.

The specific problem I am having is that I have my main workstation titled "Desktop." I have two other workstations titled "Control 2" and "Control 3". Currently "Desktop" can see and access the files on the other two PC's and manipulate them. This PC has Norton Internet Security installed. This share has worked for quite some time.

A couple days ago "Control 2 and 3" could no longer see "Desktop" unless I clicked Entire Network. It would see "Desktop" but I would get an Access Denied error. Contact the Administrator. "Control 2 and 3" can see and manipulate one another.

So this is where I am at. I have deleted and re-added File and Printer sharing as a service. I have run the network wizard. Mo joy. Nothing I do is granting permission.

Any and all assistance will be appreciated.

A:Keep getting access denied when trying to connect to Samba share

"Do you have Windows Live Essentials installed on the Windows 7 PC? The Windows Live Sign-In Assistant portion of that software makes a small change to the way Windows 7 communicates over SMB that breaks the version of Samba included with Ubuntu.

While the Samba team has fixed the official version, Canonical has not yet released an updated version for Ubuntu. In the meantime, you can get it working again by uninstalling the Windows Live Sign-In Assistant.

Incidentally, Windows Live Essentials will sometimes install via Windows Update so it could have installed without your knowledge."

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.

Thanks

Hi,

ive set up sharing,
but although i am shown my files on my other PC,
i am not allowed access to them.
dont know where to set access to accept.

Ive had a good look,
ive set a tick in 'share this folder on the network',
and ive set a tick in 'allow network users to change files'

Apparently i need permission from the administrator.

Hello,

I work for a local high school and have been having a lot of problems sharing a printer attached to a Windows 2000 machine by an parallel cable. I'm trying to share the printer with 2 Windows XP Pro machines. All 3 PCs have the same logon and I have granted access to the printer for that account. File and printer sharing are also checked on all 3 PCs.

Here is a little more information since I had a lot of problems getting this to work. We have a LAN and Novell Server in the school, but the only manages the office PCs. All the PCs are part of workgroups with each room being its own workgroup. The 3 PCs I'm working with are attached to network drops. I could not use the Add Printer Wizard to have the two XP PCs find the printer after it was shared. I had to get the IP address of the 2000 machine and then type in that IP address under run on the two XP PCs. I then double clicked on the shared printer that showed up and installed the drivers. The printer shows up on the two XP PCs as HPDesk 990 on x.x.x.x (the IP address of the 2000 machine). When I first added the printer, it worked fine. After rebooting however, I cannot access it. It just shows Access Denied. The only thing I can think of is that the logon on Windows 2000 requires a password but you don't have to enter as password to login on the two XP machines.

Is there anything else I need to check for? Thanks.

Make sure those PCs are ALL in the SAME workgroup, otherwise NO share.
And using a password is a good thing for a flawless connection, even if all passwords are the same.

A:msconfig "Access Denied error" and system optimization

Are you logged on with Administrator rights? If you're just a 'user' it won't let you access any system components, like the one you're trying to use.

One quick thing you can do to speed up the computer is to turn off the indexing that's on by default in XP. Open 'my computer' and right click on your partitions. Scroll down and select 'properties'. At the bottom, there will be an option to let windows index the drive for fast file searching. un-check this, apply to folders and subfolders, ignore all. Now go get a sandwich. When it's done, you should have a slightly faster computer. Don't forget to run cleanup to get rid of temp files and also to run your defrag app.

Hi,

I have a user that has now left our company and would therefore like to delete their roaming profile from the profiles folder on our server.

I have deleted their account from Active Directory and have then tried to delete their profile from the roaming profiles folder. But when I do this I get the access denied message, the reason being that the file may be open or I do not have sufficient rights. I have also taken ownership of the folder so I have all the correct permissions.

Anyone have any ideas ?

We have a number of users that have lost access to the network share My Documents where everything they create is redirected and stored on a Sunfire server with the data on NFS volume. We are a Xen virtual shop running Server 2003. We've just built a Server 2008 that we are going to promote to PDC.
What's more baffling is that it is happening on newly built Dell 390 Windows 7 Pro and some existing Dell W7 Pro machines but not on the old XP PCs. When it first appeared the user went from XP to 7. He still has access to the share on the XP machine but on his W7 pro he gets an "Access Denied. See your Administrator" message when trying to open MS office docs or PDFs or photos. If I log into the new W7 PC as domain admin and try and copy the documents from the share to his W7 desktop I get a "you must have permission from user to do this". When I go back to my W7 PC I have no problem moving users documents around.

User has full control of folder and all subfolders, user is the owner of folder and is an administrator on the PC. I've set up the trust center in MS Office to specifically trust the path & share that we redirect to. I've used the Take Ownership utility I found on this forum on the parent folder to no avail.

Hello,

A few questions:

1) Where is the share that you are trying to access? On the Windows 2003 Server?
2) Are the new windows 7 PC's on the Domain?
3) Have you checked the Advanced sharing to se if file and print sharing is enabled on the PCs?
4) Why have you touched the Local Security Policy? By default you shouldnt need to.
5) Have you already added the Windows 2008 Server to the Domain? If so, did you make sure that the Domain and Forest was at the correct functionality?
6) Have you checked AD for errors? (dcdiag/event lofgs)
7) Check the security event logs on the Server where the Share is.
8) Disable the Anti-Virus and Firewall to test.
9) Recheck the permissions of the share. Paste a screen shot if you can.

10) Are the servers local to the users or hosted on the Web? If on another site, how are they accessed? VPN?
11) If you're redirecting paths did you change the logon scrips acordingly for Windows 7?

Hi all,

Recently I've been trying to help my cousin fix her computer and rid it of viruses, however it seems the more I fix it, the worse it gets.

Originally through, spybot, ad-aware, avast & defender I ended up removing around 5k-6k worth of malware infections and another 30 or so different viruses/trojens etc. I also tried clearing the registry with CCleaner and ended up with hundreds and hundreds of errors that needed fixing (auto fix by CCleaner). She's using XP.

Now there a ton of errors and a few very strange problems that I have not been able to fix.

1) on log in. two run dll error message comes up. "error loading c:\windows\downlo~1\e99b.dll The specified module could not be found" and the other the same but with "e99ac.dll".

This seems to pop up at random and when I leave the computer on and walk away from a while - chances are it is there when I come back later.

2) Double Clicking on "my computer on the desktop brings up the folder along with an Rundll error "error loading The specified module could not be found" The exact same things happens when I click on recycle bin, network places or my documents. When I click on any other folder (but not any file) on the desktop - it does the exact same thing BUT it also brings up the examples in problem #3 below

3) When I go into windows explorer and l click on c: or d: it brings up the normal window, I click on folders 'dcache', 'temp and they open. howe... Read more

The new task has been created, but may not run because the account information could not be set.
The specific error is:

It should say "will not run", because it didn't.

My security for restore is drive c only.

In properties my computer description is blank, full is lower case of my last name and workgroup says MSHOME.
The only thing I can spot is my registration has my last name in upper case.

A:System Restore Access Denied

There are two possible reasons for getting this error message from the Windows Task Scheduler:1. You've entered the wrong password. The password you use must be the same one you use to login to Windows. If you do not have a login password then you do not need to enter any password.2.

here's a screenshot of the error message when trying to access one of my folders...

 

A:system restore, access denied

where you originally using Encryption before restore?
If so what was Encrypting the folders? Windows or 3rd party software?
what could have happened is you used a Encryption Program to Encrypt you folders
then when you used XP's System Restore (which restores the registry to the date selected
and then amends the files on the drive according to the registry) and the restoration point
is BEFORE you installed and run the Encryption program... so the folders themselves are
Encrypted still but the restore point doesnt have the program installed then....
you need to supply a bit more information before any help can be given properly

did you use an Encryption Program? if so what was it?
Try re-installing it and decrypting the folders....

For the last ~3 wks, I have not been able to access my (WinXP Home SP3-running) computer's System Volume Information (SVI) folders which, as most of you know, are where the System Restore points are stored. (See my computer's specs at bottom of this post.) There are 2 SVI folders on my HDD; one is located in my Windows Directory (C:) and another in a data partition on my HDD (E:). I DO have the folders configured such that they show hidden files/folders and protected operating system files. I am able to visualize the SVI folders in both directories. However, when I hover over the folders, they both read "Folder is empty." And when I click on the folders, a message appears: "C[or E]:\System Volume Information is not accessible. Access is denied." I know that there are restore points stored there, though, because (A) I have manually created System Restore points without any problems, and (B) I can use a feature on CCleaner to view/delete old system restore points, and when I do this, there are many restore points visible there. I have checked System Restore tab in My Computer's Properties. The box for turning off system restore is unticked, and beside both C: and E:, it reads "Monitoring." I have tried to rectify the problem by turning off system restore through ticking the box which turns it off, clicking Apply, rebooting, etc., but I still have the same issue when I turn System Restore back on. (I have also tried to use... Read more

A:System Restore (SVI) Folder – “Access Denied”

You are the curious one - like me What you describe sounds "normal", but I cannot explain how it seems to have changed for that folder in the last few weeks. There were some MS security updates last Tuesday... It takes more than view hidden files, etc. to see in there.I find the most efficient way (other methods may be offered) to view the SVI folder on a drive is to use the cacls command which you can read about here:http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documen...s.mspx?mfr=trueEnter the following command (or by typing the command in Start, Run) while having sufficient permissions (being the only user of a machine or logging in as administrator should be sufficient). cacls "C:\System Volume Information" /E /P Jose:F That should all be on one line, press Enter. Now Jose can access all of that stuff and Jose should be careful. To change it back the way it was before, enter the following on a line by itself, and press Enter cacls "C:\System Volume Information" /E /R Jose

Calling all Geeks....ok here goes, short to the point. I installed FoxitPDFreader from a zip file. It contained a stand-alone foxitpdfreader.exe program. I installed it during which I chose the option to make it my default reader (instead of my usual Acrobat). The program installed and I saw the Foxit Reader screen. I clicked it off, then put the .exe into a folder and moved it from MyDocuments to the C:Program Files directory for my reference. Then, I tried to use the Foxit Reader by double clicking a .pdf but nothing happened, the PDF didn't open. I then right-clicked the .pdf and went to "open with" but the Foxit was not listed among the programs, just Adobe, as if Foxit did't exist.

I then went back to the Foxit folder I had moved to C:Program Files (I had named the folder "FoxitPDFReader") but Windows showed the folder I had moved just 5 min. before 'empty'!! What tha?
Then I tried to open the folder and got "Access denied" to the ??empty folder. So I successfully moved the empty folder back to MyDocuments, but still could not open it. Of course, there was no uninstall program in the .zip, just the stand-alone .exe.
Also, when I installed it, Foxit changed all my Adobe icons to ugly, low pixel somethings. CilyPudi just wanted to get rid of this thing. So I tried Unlocker, but no locking handle found, so I chose 'delete on reboot'. Still the folder would not delete after reboot. I couldn't us... Read more

I then right-clicked the .pdf and went to "open with" but the Foxit was not listed among the programs, just Adobe, as if Foxit did't existWhen you tried opening a pdf and did not see Foxit Reader listed, did you try right clicking, choose Open with > choose Program and then browse to the folder where you placed the .exe?I use Foxit Reader all the time and have it set as my default for .pdf. Works great.However, since you don't want it, did you try using System Restore to return to a previous state before unzipping/installing Foxit Reader?

Hi there! I just switched to Vista and as usual, I downloaded Piriform's Defraggler (as I "hate" Windows Defraggler). Anyways, I did a defrag and a message poped up saying that some files were not defragged. So, I checked the files and it was System Volume Information. Now I know by default you don't have access to this folder (I am logged in as the Administrator), so I went to see If I had permission to it, I also made the "Hidden Files and Folders" show. Nothing changed, I still don't have access to the System Volume Information. I know that Windows Defraggler somehow bypasses that, but I REALLY hate using it.

For a number of reasons I need the system context to be able to access and read certain public network shares.
These shares are located on a samba server, and are public read to everyone. Environment is WORKGROUP.
My Win10 machine can ping the server sharing the folder, and can properly read the folder content unless the action runs under the user nt authority\system (the one I need to run the action).
The machine has already been patched with the change
[HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters] AllowInsecureGuestAuth REG_DWORD 1
but this seems to have no effect on this specific issue.
The machine is a fresh install, and anyway this behaviour is happening systematically
(and since a few weeks). For running processes under system context I use
PSexec.exe -i -s cmd
by Mark Russinovich
In Win7 the behaviour is as expected (the result of the red cmd is the same than the yellow cmd).
In my specific case it does not make much sense to create a user on the samba server, because shares are absolutely public.
Is anybody having a similar issue??

System volume information is owned by the user group "system" Even admins dont have rights to it. Only way I can think of is to take ownership of it (perhaps in DOS) from another OS or DVD.

That may make the HD unusable.

Mousing over the folder I am told the folder is empty . Also when I go into C:\Recycler there is always one folder in there that I cannot delete as it is "being used by another person or program .

but now i can't access my encrypted files. i get "access denied" even tho i created the folders with my admin account.

xp has created a new admin account with the same name and password. i can see both accounts have a CA Root cerificate that is not trusted.

i tried adding my new user account by using the encrypted file properties to gain access, but xp reported "error in adding new user. error code 5.", which is a big help.
