    If you are using avast antivirus goto settings->Troubleshooting->Disable avast self defence module
    Then restart.

    Windows 10 permissions

    Exactly. Have microsoft gone mad?
    How on earth do they expect 3rd world countries to be able to operate a computer?
    I have a brand new computer and new windows 10 and have spent so much time trying to get permission to do any thing. When I try, I just get errors.
    How can I go back to Windows 7?

    Hi All,

    Windows 10 Pro.

    When trying to access the Windows\Temp folder, I receive the prompt informing me that, "You don't currently have permission to access this folder."

    I click the continue button and receive the error message, "You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder you will need to use the security tab."

    I do just that.

    Properties --> Security --> Advanced --> Continue

    Creator Owner, Administrators and System all have Full Control. Users has 'special.' So I adjust Users to have Full control.

    I receive the error: "An error occurred while applying security information to: C:\Windows\Temp. Failure to enumerate objects in the container. Access is denied."

    I click continue and get this error, "Unable to save permission changes on Temp. Access is denied."

    Any thoughts/suggestions?
