Q: 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'.

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.

Preferred Solution: 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'.

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 have just had a new PC installed and although it is behaving itself fairly well, I noticed that several of my programs are opening in a "normal window", whereas I prefer them to be maximized. So I follow the basic routine of right-clicking the appropriate desktop shortcut, then "Properties" and clicking on "Run Maximized".
But then I receive a message "Access Denied - you will need to provide administrator permission to change these settings"! As I am the only user of the PC, what does this mean, and how can I avoid this message?

I am trying to access a page on a website and I am getting a message stating "Access is denied due to invalid credentials." When I search Google about this message all the "answers" to this problem discuss something called iis and application pools which I know absolutely nothing about.

I have Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 and I have msn.com as my home page. When I tried getting onto my home page a little bit ago, a notice came up that said "Server Error 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied". I was able to go on other web sites fine and when I changed the home page (back to msn), the message went away. But other users on the computer have the same problem. I heard someone say it may be the result of a hijackware infection. Could that be the case or something else? Thanks.

Hello,
I have a new installation of Windows.  There are few directories that my administrator account cannot access, it replies that I do not have the necessary autorisations, to click Continue to permanently access this folder.  When I look at the security
of the folder, the group Administrators is there, with full control.  My user is part of that group.
Why is Windows not letting my user access the directory without adding my specific user to the directory security?
How to resolve all directories like this?

Thanks, Dominic

Also, it says I already am a administrator so why is it giving me a access denied message? This is in Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit.

So today I was working on my computer, my norton antivirus expired and so I bought a new one. Well it wouldn't renew my subscription so I read on a website that you need to clear norton out of your registry. So I followed the directions and ever since I did that when I open a webpage it goes to a screen that says:

ERROR

The requested URL could not be retrieved
-----------------------------------------------

The following error was encountered:

- Cache Access Denied

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.

For starters, where are you trying to access it from? Is this an Internet connection from home, college, business, etc? If it's a home connection, perhaps you should speak with your ISP to see if there are any issues. As for business and colleges: the people in charge of networking at these respective establishments would be the best bet.

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.

A:Robocopy - Access denied Error 5 Real Directory

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.

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 run into this problem often. When working with Photoshop files (PSD in the most recent case), sometimes when I make a change and then try to save the changes I come up with this error dialog. My work flow is always the same - I am the computer's administrator.
I am the only person with access to this computer. There are no other users on this computer. This computer is not tied to any server or network. My files are generated from my own work obtained from my camera. I normally save changes to the file several times
so I won't lose my work. I can save the file using a different name, but then I cannot delete the original file unless I reboot the computer and open it up again. Please explain why this randomly reoccurs.

This issue is a little weired,please take the following steps to have a check .

A:Access is denied error as administrator(cant install anything)

The "real" Administrator account in Win7 is hidden from view. You have to "unhide" it in order to login as the real Administrator.

When you go to install anything, you should right-click on the setup file and choose "Run as Administrator". That will temporarily give you elevated rights to install stuff.

If that does not work, there are other problems.

Access denied, Error 5, Administrator disabled Hi,

I think I have been affected either by a virus or a strange MS update

I lost my restore points and cannot delete files nor install anything without a "Continue" button with a shield on it.(asking for admin privileges)

UAC is turned off.

I've had no problems before and only noticed this when my AVG anti virus kept prompting me a week ago that I had
"insufficient administrator privileges"

I went to User Accounts ( I am the only user)

it had my name , my domain and "Debugger Users"

I am quite sure it had administrator rights previously.

Looking through the various topics on the net, I've tried the following

net user administrator
and got the error 5 message

i tried logging in as administrator and found it had been disabled, pls contact your system administrator

Ownership of files has also been locked (Access denied)

I am at my wits end and considering either paying IT experts to fix it for me or do a factory reset as a last resort.. however will I lose MS office?
My brother gave me this laptop as a hand me down and he is overseas at the moment and can't pass me the MS Office discs easily.

Boot into Recovery using the Vista DVD or the HDD Recovery partition - run Windows System Restore from there.

Get rid of AVG - AVG Removal - sysnative.com - MVP

Boot into SAFEMODE and see if symptoms are the same - tap F8 key during boot-up.

Hi,

I think I have been affected either by a virus or a strange MS update

I lost my restore points and cannot delete any file nor install anything without a "Continue" button with a shield on it.

I've had no problems before and only noticed this when my AVG anti virus kept prompting me a week ago that I had
"insufficient administrator privileges"

I went to User Accounts ( I am the only user)

it had my name , my domain and "Debugger Users"

I am quite sure it had administrator rights previously.

Looking through the various topics on the net, I've tried the following

net user administrator
and got the error 5 message

i tried logging in as administrator and found it had been disabled, pls contact your system administrator

i guess i have to save my data somewhere else and do a factory reset as a last resort.. however will I lose MS office?

Thanks and sorry for the lengthy post

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. 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. So, I tried ordering some disks that I thought may be able to help while I've been reading through threads for information. I don't have any of the original software for this cop, I purchased it used a few years ago. 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. But the were being sold as disks for this... Read more

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).

This box keeps popping up every few minutes asking for me to give permission for my PC to contact it. It also rates it as a HIGH RISK contact.

1) Should I give my permission?

2) I am told this is a Microsoft contact. What info is it sharing to be rated HIGH RISK?

3) Is there a way to block this for good without keep getting the pop-ups? If so, would it affect the performance of my PC in any way.
I have Windows updates set to manual and this problem only appeared yesterday morning and I dont recall downloading anything.

However, I did upgrade Norton to the 2005 version about a week ago if this my have anything to do with it.

I cannot find any answers on Google and would be grateful for any assistance with this.
Many thanks
 

A:Norton keeps asking me to give permission for my PC to access 207.46.107.66.

Hi kiasu

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

I did a ping for 207.46.107.66 and the request timed out.

I don't use Norton, does it show anything in Norton's Help file about permanently blocking a site?
See if this link helps in configuring that site to be permanetly blocked:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...56eda00456216&dtype=&prod=&ver=&osv=&osv_lvl=

When was the last time you ran a virus scan?

You might consider running an online virus scan at the following:

Run an online Anti-Virus scan from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites
Trendmicro HouseCall
PandaActiveScan
SymantecSecurityScan
RavAntiVirusScanOnline
Allow them to clean/delete any spyware/malware or viruses/trojans they may find.
Make a note of any files flagged that were unable to be cleaned or deleted.

Download, Install and check each of the following Spyware tools for updates:
(If you already have the following, please make sure it is the latest version and has been updated)
Ad-Aware SE 1.05:
Click on Full System Scan and deselect Search for negligible risk entries. Have Ad-Aware SE remove what it finds.
Spybot-S&D 1.3:
Have it fix what it finds marked in Red.
Spyware Blaster 3.4:
Click on Updates > Check for Updates Switch to Protection
Under Quick Tasks click Enable All Protection. Close Spyware Blaster.

Let us know if that helps or not.

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.

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,

Hello All, Can somebody help with an error message I keep getting on my parents desk top PC running 'Vista' each time I try and install my new Epson DX 8400 printer from the installation CD. It installs upto the Epson file Mangager which then gives me the following error message: 'access is denied (0x5). There is also more error message pertaining the the C:\Programmes etc etc but I have not written this down yet. I have contacted Epson technical whom have informed me this is a Vista problem so I tried to install the same printer on my PC running Vista and it was successful first time and it also installed the desk top icon for the Epson File Manger utility. Incidentally, my parents PC is still able to print from the Epson but that is all, there is no utility hence the error message which just leaves me confused. Does anybody know a simple fix for this problem.

Many thanks in anticipation !

Whether I sign on as a User or as the Administrator and key in "msconfig" the following error message appears: "System Configuration Utility An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes."

I called the computer manufacturer and spoke with a tech. He walked me through several things, but none of them worked.

Signing on in Safe Mode and in Safe Mode with Networking I can access msconfig. I've gone into the Services tab and checked to remove all Microsoft items. I can identify four of the five non-Window applications as being legitimate. The one I cannot identify is: PrismXL from New Boundary Technology. I've unchecked that, but still cannot access msconfig in regular Windows boot-up.

Has anyone seen this particular error message, and if so what is the solution? Thank you.

I'm running XP Home SP1 on an HP Pavilion 504n desktop, and trying to finally update to SP2. FYI, the computer had a lot of spyware, viruses, etc., which I've cleaned up using Webroot Spy Sweeper with Antivirus, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Tuneup Utilities 2007. With the exception of a pretty infrequent reboot or crash, the computer is now working beautifully.

About halfway through the SP2 install I get the "Access is denied" error message...

The problem isn't in the usual vnd.ms.radio (infact, that file isn't mentioned at all in the setupapi file), but in the HKLM\\SYSTEM\CurrentControllerSet\Services\ssdpsrv\\DependOnService...
Problem is, that doesn't exist in the registry. It's not in the SSDPSRV directory itself, and the only subdirectories are a pyramid of 'ASCII art' jibberish (none of which contain anything except a "(Default)" value). There is, however, a sub-folder named 16b2c96a0c41f4dfdb4d3cc228a4f819 in the folder c:\windows\softwaredistribution\download.
