Hi,
Most probably you have not logged on as administrator while installing antivirus.

Please login as administrator and try (you will require admin password or help from your administrator)

If you have logged in an administrator but even you are having problem, please do following

  • right click on c: drive and select properties
  • click on security tab
  • select administrator in users
  • click edit permission
  • select full control for administrator
click OK

this will surely work, even if it dosent work surely your system is infected with with deadly virus.

Please contact in any further problem.

Why I have been harassed by access denied?


need more info
but check to see if your anti virus is blocking you

Mar 02, 2015 | Computers & Internet

Pen drive access denied


USB ports and devices make connecting to another computing device convenient.
USB technology has been around since 1996, and is a feature found on most modern computing devices.
If your device is denied access to one of its USB features, do some troubleshooting to isolate and resolve the problem.
Viruses
Some computers come with a security feature that automatically denies access to a USB device, such as a flash drive, if harmful content is detected.
Installing an anti-virus software application and regularly scanning the computer and any connected USB devices can help you avoid experiencing denied access to a USB device.
Avoid opening USB flash drive files that you cannot identify or do not recognize, as these types of files are how viruses find their way onto unprotected computers.

Incompatibility

Inserting an incompatible device into your computer's USB port can also cause you to be denied access to your device's USB features.
For instance, if your computer supports USB 1.0 technology and you insert a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connector, the computer can experience interfacing problems that may cause a "USB access denied" prompt or situation.
If other USB devices begin to malfunction after inserting an incompatible USB cable into your computer, turning the computer off and back on again may resolve the situation.



Formatting
USB flash drives, also known as pen or thumb drives, are among the most common types of USB devices used in conjunction with computers.
Most USB flash drives are formatted using one of three types of formatting methods: FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS.
If you've formatted a USB flash drive using one method, used it on the computer and then reformatted the drive using another method, you can be denied access to the flash drive through the computer's USB port.
Wiping the flash drive clean and reformatting it again can resolve this type of problem.

Considerations

Many computer accessories, including printers and pointing devices, connect through the machine's USB ports and can interface interchangeably with multiple computing devices.
This feature increases the risks of picking up viruses and experiencing unauthorized reformatting. Limiting the amount of computers your USB devices accesses can help you avoid these situations.
Damaged USB cables can also make it impossible to access USB devices when they are connected to your computer.
USB cable damage usually occurs at the points where the cable and its connectors meet. Replace any damaged USB cables.
You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer.
Click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer Administrator you must have full control.
Click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
Click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

Is there anybody out there that can help me with this problem? I am unable to access Google Chrome. I keep on getting error signal 102, error connection refused. I checked my windows firewall and access...


If you have recently had a virus or malware attack, it has changed your proxy settings. Go to options>under the hood>change Proxy settings>LAN Settings and make sure of the following:
Automatically detect settings is CHECKED
Use a Proxy server for your LAN is UNCHECKED
If this doesn't fix it then the registry might have been affected, too. Perform a repair on your operating system or restore. I would recommend a factory restore after you have saved all important data on an external drive or flash.

I repaired the viruses found but when I tried to open my flash drive it doesn't work, the computer says, ''Access is Denied''. What should I do? please help me, got many important files in it.


Were the viruses you found on your local hard drive or on your flash drive? Do a virus scan of your flash drive to be sure. Not sure what program you're using, but make sure you tell it specifically to scan that drive, otherwise it will just scan your C: drive, and that won't help.

I would also try accessing the flash drive from a command line. Click Start --> Run... and type cmd
In the black window that pops up, type the letter name of the flash drive, like e: and hit enter. If your prompt changes to E:\ your files are intact. If you get an error like "access is denied" again, then you'll have to get more creative. Truthfully it sounds like there's just more virus cleanup to be done.

If you're in a pinch, you could download something like Ubuntu, create a boot CD (it comes with instructions), and boot your computer into Ubuntu (without installing it). Once you've loaded Ubuntu, you should be able to see all the files on your flash drive and copy them to another device.

Hope this helps you! If so, please leave a rating!

When i try to install a critical update it was denied access by 7 zip. even after uninstalling 7 zip and installing winzip i still get the same response when trying to install updates 7 zip access denied....


Install Winrar, Here is the link

http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar391.exe

if you double click the file,the files will be extracted in the temp folder,so after installing winrar,right click on the file and select extract here. and try to install the update now,

Sometime when you extract files and it contains Malware or Trojan,Anti-Virus which support real time scan just block the files and the access denied message is displayed.

Scan the extracted files before installing so that you know it's Virus free.

Sometimes,even if you have administrator right,sometimes due to malware infection, you are denied access to some system hidden giles like folder under Local settings.

C Drive Access


This is one of those things where Mac and Linux has Windoze over a barrel. I understand Vista may have the capability, but it's complicated to use.
With XP and earlier releases, each user has access to only their own desktop for personal stuff. You can set up a different username and password for each user. But this will not keep anyone from accessing the C:/ and or installing anything. Additionally, you may find some help using some firewall or other protection utilities found in your anti-virus software. That may at least protect your system files, and you can also set some restore points with which to rescue the system when it gets corrupted.

Good luck.

Access denied when installing win xp service pack 3


Are you logged in as an administrator on your PC? Access Denied is almost always an indicator that the current logged in user does not have sufficient permissions to install applications. Let us know if this is not the case. Hope this helps!

D,f drives "access is denied" on double click. but opens when rt clk and 'open'


What OS you're using?
Are you having Admin rights on the system you're trying to access the e&f drives?

If you have admin rights, then try to look at the security options of the drive (Right click on the drive and check properties). Make sure that your login name / your group is listed with full permissions.

Accessing a folder.


This will sound off the wall, but we had something similar to this happen with my last laptop, where it was "access denied" in lots of areas, and we would have to find little backdoor ways to get into control panel and document files. The problem with our computer was that it had previously crashed, and we had rebooted and reinstalled the xp, but didn't have the registration number, so it would run ok, but to get into all those access denied things (which you eventually need to get into) we had to come up with our registration number.
Did it prompt you to enter the product key when you re-installed it?
