    windows 10 upgraded from 7

    I got lucky, was able to do full restore to factory specs having found my 4 year old dvd restore discs that
    were buried with a lot of old computer junk. Will be keeping all restore material for all my computers in top
    drawer from now on. Lessons learned make sure you do external rescue disk, never touch C drive permissions.
    When in doubt leave alone or come to this forum for answers first...!

    If so, then are you may need to do a clean install from the USB if able.

    ERROR: Access is denied.


    Tried the TAKEOWN method (elevated command prompt) on a folder created by SYSTEM (AVAST) and got the above message. 'Take Ownership' in Context Menu also fails as does trying to edit or change ownership in "properties". Any suggestions?

    Hello zephyrus,

    If this an Avast folder, it may be protected/blocked by Avast to prevent tampering with.
