Access is Denied(5)-shutdown -i RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I started command prompt as administrator, I got the IP adress of the computer, and then typed in shutdown -i, but after I entered the Ip adress, entered the reason, and then clicked ok, CMD gave "Access is Denied (5)." How do I fix this issue?

  • Hi,

    Try to temporary disable UAC for test. Also disable firewall.

    Furthermore, you can also try to create another administrator and login to see if the same issue occurs.

    Hope that helps.
