  • Hi,

    So are we still using the administrator account?

    We might take use of the built-in administrator to recheck the drive permissions:

    Run the bellow command from command line using admin rights:

    Net user administrator /active:yes

    Then login and check the permissions with the Administrator account.

    Best regards

  • I appreciate the help but unfortunately I have the same issue.  When I tried the following command this shows up after pressing enter

    System error 5 has occurred

    Access is denied

    If I try to run cmd as Admin my computer denies access to that as well. Please reply I can't Install windows 10 because of this Issue. I have tried to regain ownership but changing the owner also has access denied as well. Any program associated with admin rights is denied.
