Error 5: Access is denied.

Q: Error 5: Access is denied.

Hello, I have been getting Error 5: Access denied for a few days. I cannot install new programs; this error will always just pop up.

I've scanned for viruses (a lot showed up, but were cleaned. My AV is Comodo.), tried a System Restore, but all my restore points are gone except for the ones today, using the built in administrator account, using the "Run as administrator" option, and making a new account. Nothing has worked.

Preferred Solution: Error 5: Access is 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.)

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

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

Hello I am unable to access my task manager on Windows 7 as administrator. Whenever I try to access it a Command window flashes on the screen quickly and that's it. Same thing happens when taskmgr.exe is clicked. 
 
I was able to capture the command window error as the following:
 
C;\Users\<name>\Documents>REG and HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System  /v  DisableTaskMgr  /t  REG_DWORD  /d  /0  /f
ERROR: Access is denied.
 
Any help with this would be appreciated. I have checked that TaskMgr is enabled in the registry, and have ran AVG and Malwarebytes and they didn't come up with anything.

blue gravity,
 
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"
Press enter
Close cmd.exe
Log out
Log in
Try to open task manager
 
If this does not work, or you believe your computer might be infected, please follow the instructions found at Am I Infected, as I am not authorized to assist with the removal of malware.
 
Thank you,

Try rebooting in Safe Mode and go in as the Administrator account. If you can get to start the Windows Installer service in there it will be a case of trawling through the Help & Support menu under a search heading of "Permissions" to get your own username account granted all the powers you may ever need.

Booting up my Windows Vista Home Proffesional My WIFI would not connect, after a few minutes I realised that DHCP service and the Diagnositic service was not started.

However when I try and start any of there services I am shown "Error 5: Access is Denied" However with any other service I can start and stop them fine.

Im thinking it is something to do with these services loging into the Local Service account and maybe this account has lost privlages.

I have tried system restore multiple times back to many different dates where the system was working correctly.

Hi AshleyM. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista!

I would suggest that you try to start the questioned services via an Elevated level. Perform the following:

START | type services.msc into the Start Search box | right click on same | select Run as Administrator | The Services console should appear

Please let me know how you make out.

My brother made it so that my account has no admin/user abilities whatsoever, and when I try to change it, it gives me the error. This happens when I try to download things as well, and it's very irritating. Is there ANY way to get around this?

I was having some malware problems on my system and a friend recommended running combofix to solve them.

While running combofix, windows vista x64 popped an error saying that Pev.cfxxe had stopped responding and that it was searching for a solution. Then the window changed and only gave me the option to close the program. I waited 30 mins before I finally did close the program and then combofix seemed to complete normally and generate its log file.

I think that combofix changes folder permissions when it is run and some of mine did not get changed back because after combofix finished, I tried to install a program update. I reveived the following error:

Unable to execute file in the temporary directory. Setup aborted. Error 5: Access is denied.

I have never had this error before running Combofix, I am not blaming the program. I know that sometimes "stuff" just happens. Does anyone know if Combofix changes folder permissions? If it does, how can I get them back to the default permissions.

I have uninstalled combofix as per the instructions on bleeping computer and used the system restore point that combofix generated before running, but I still have the same problem. I can right click on the setup file and run it as administrator, but I have never had to do that before.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Running Xp Pro sp2
While searching thru the forum I saw one or two other access denied postings. They all knew the program they were working with. I don't know what I did.
The other day I reinstalled my HP printer and camera. Decided to go to msconfig startup, and uncheck them did not need them to run all the time. A day or two before I downloaded a program called cloned cd 42.02 and left the start up alone. While in startup I decided to uncheck all unneeded programs. Received this error: Access denied error returned while attempting to change a service. Youmay need to log on as adminstratr to make the specified changes. Well, I am the administor.

As my name states I am not a techie so I decided to go to system restore and restore to a point before any of these were installed. My system restore was turned off. Do not remember ever turning it off. So back to msconfig and tried to delete and after restarting every uncheck I got rid of all the run in the back programs. But, still get the message.

Tried to change name of administrator still denied access. Ran in normal mode and safe mode.

Deleted the program cloned cd Reinstalled program. Everything else seems to run great.

Can this hurt the computer if I dont get rid of it.

If you click ok it will keep coming back about 10 to 15 times and will then cease. This will only happen on a limited account, not my admin rights account. I've checked if any abnormal processes are going but see none. Norton 2005 says that there are no viruses.... what going on?!?!

A:Error Access Denied

You may have an account that cannot be accessed by a limited account in the "all users" startup menu. Limited users cannot access any programs that write to the registry.Download Startup Inspector which is much easier to use than msconfig as it identifies startups by the programs they are related to.Startup Inspectorhttp://www.windowsstartup.com/download.phpDisable all unnecessary programs from starting. (click on the all startup items at the top of the list on the left)Be careful not to disable your firewall or av ap.You might like Startup Monitor as well (on the same page).It notifies you and requires your permission when any ap tries to add itself to your start menu.

My question is does someone have experience with this issue or know how to fix it? I'll preciate it and I hope somone can help me out. Best regards John.

I have the same problem,
Computer restarted on it's own with the same result.
I am thinking it was a windows update.
but I am not able to do anything with out (RPC)
I can open secpol and gpedit using mmc, but do not have access to change anything.
if anyone has any ideas it would be great.
Thanks,

Hi Minnesota1, welcom to Sevenforums

I had this yesterday with a package of other problems.
Can you explain more about the issue? What type of environment your in, what user rights you have, where the program is running from?
A first suggestion would be to right click on the application, go to the compatibility tab, and select 'run as administrator'

Hello,

I tried opening a CD-ROM to get at the files inside by right clicking on the disk and clicking on the Open option. I got the following error message:

Access is denied

Access violation at address 0045A1BF in Modules 'Wrapper.exe'. Readout address 00000180

Is this to do with Vista or the program itself? It worked fine on XP. If its a Vista thing does anyone know how I can get around this or if there is a download fix?

Thanks,

Martin

I know this has to do with some bum HP printer software, but I can no longer find the solution in the MS Knowledge Base for some reason. When I make changes to Startup Items in msconfig.exe and close the utility, a messge pops up saying maybe i do not have administrator privileges, but i do. i think the changes i make to Startup are saved, but it's jarring to get the error message each time.

A:"Access denied" error in msconfig

You are correct stating it has something to do with HP printers.The only thing I found on the subject with a solution is http://www.ehow.com/how_4531999_fix-access...rror-using.htmlThe solution there involves editing the registry. IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE THOUGHT OF REGISTRY EDITING, DO NOT DO IT.

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium desktop. I use a VPN for work (through them) and have 1 link from my work programs that gives me an Error: Cache Access Denied.  It has a Windows Security prompt asking for a username and password.  I have never had to log into this program before.  It's for RTM which is a real time monitor.  I contacted our support center for assistance and he tells me that my Windows User Profile is the issue. 
 
Here's what I have done so far.
a. Made sure there is no proxy in IE options > connections > LAN settings.
b. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Java.
c. Ran Malaware Bytes.
d. Ran Ccleaner multiple times.
e. Cleared my java and IE cache
f.  I've even rebooted my network.
g. I reset all of my internet explorer settings to default settings.
 
Nothing has helped.  I even tried to do a system restore with no luck.  I'm at my wits end and close to reformatting, but I really don't want to.
 
I do not get the error on my laptop.  Windows did some updates last evening, but yesterday it worked fine.  My computer works perfectly fine except getting the error.  I receive it in all browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox).  I have IE 10. 
 
Any help would be appreciated.

Hello to you,
guys please tell what the hell is going on with this IE 11 error. There are many sites that I cannot use because of this. Looks like IE 11 security takes over. I tried almost everything , tried to enable cross domain, add to secure websites, enable scripting
- NOTHING WORKS. The same sites have no problems in FF and Chrome or Edge. Here is an example , when I try to play this in full screen or click on it - just black screen.

The same goes with some forum windows, buttons. On click - there is no reaction at all. I know this is sth. connected to inbuilt security issue but I tried so many things.

So looking forward to hearing from you,
thanks and Regards.

Can you correlate this message to any recent software installation or download, or a change to your system that you made?

Can you tell us more about what anti-malware/virus software you have running on your PC?

You don't need all of the above.
I'm feeling out what resources you have and will make the job as easy for you as possible.
