  1. Access DENIED remnant folder purevpn


    I am trying to get rid of all remnents of purevpn. I uninstalled first from control panel, as I couldn't locate a different uninstall file. Then ( a while later-months) I searched and found a purevpn folder in an odd place(don't recall, just not in usual program file areas) There WAS the uninstall file!! So I ran it. Now a search shows up several different files belonging to purevpn but one that concerns me is located in C:\programdata\purevpn. The only file is "commands" no extension,under type says 'file' Access denied when I try to delete(need permission from Administrators, etc) try again. Cannot change attributes. tried from properties( read only isnt even checked but when I try to del, denied!Tried attrib -r from elevated command prompt. denied!
    Opened ADMINISTRATOR account. I cannot even find C:\programdata folder nor any returns for purevpn.
    Stumped! ( I made system administrator inactive BTW)

    :)

    Destination Folder Access Denied

    Hi,

    There are times that you may run into the issue of being unable to open or access or work with files and folder. The common message that flashes on your computer screen when you try doing so reads: "Access Denied."

    This can occur for one or more of the following reasons:

    • The folder ownership may have changed.
    • You do not have the proper permissions.
    • The file may be encrypted.
    • The file may be in use.
    • The file may be corrupt.
    • The user profile may be corrupt.
    To resolve this issue, the first step is to run CHKDSK. It detects and fix disk corruption. To run CHKDSK, follow these steps:

    • Press Win+X.
    • Select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the window that opens enter your CHKDSK command.
    Get back to us to if you need further assistance.

    To understand the issue better, I would need more information from your end.1. Is the issue specific with a particular folder?

    2. What is the complete error message?

    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:


    • Permission issue.

    • Damaged files.

    I suggest you to try the steps under the section Issue 1:
