    Almost every app I tried to run gives me this error ; “Windows cannot access the device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.”


    This started happening last night 1-12-2021 when I installed two Windows updates and rebooted. McAffee gives me a pop up which says something to the effect of “stopping something dangerous, caught something trying to hijack one of your apps”. I ran a full virus scan and no results of malware or viruses.


    The first thing that happened was the above then I got a black screen with a functioning mouse pointer, then it crashed after several reboots. I was caught in a loop. It repeatedly broght the ” Blue repair screens”, the one where you can do a restore, use command prompt, etc.


    I then managed to try a restore of the latest disk image. I then got an error. I tried this again, same result. I then tried to reinstall windows from a usb recovery stick. I had to play around with the Bios, which I am not proficient. Then when I realized. I had no usb recovery drive, i put it back into UEFI mode. And it booted up and now I am not experiencing crashes or that black screen with movable mouse pointer. But I am back to the above error for all the apps I try to run. Microsoft Office apps sometimes work and sometimes do not. I can’t even run the applets in the control panel.


    1. Does anyone have the same problem since installing yesterday’s updagtes?


    2. Does anyone know how to fix it or what is going on?


    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Give access to specific apps for Local User

    @dalchina, thanks for the suggestion.

    I tried your blanket option, and that didn't work.

    I filtered per your suggestion:

    However, it seems there are no settings for that filter:

    Running IE11 and accessing a 192.168.0.x address

    So sorry for the very late reply. I am not a well person.

    I have tried the suggestions and these are my results. I have been slow, but things have got more complications as I tried more.

    Most important: I have tried dozens of times (really!), and just now it worked and this is what I did, and had done many times before without luck.


    • I ran IExplore.exe with admin rights
    • I entered 192.168.0.50:86 and that put me immediately into where I wanted to be with access to my 4 cameras.
    • I repeated the same steps 2 times more and failed.
    • My third attempt it worked again! What is the saying? .... "go figure!"

    In all my (earlier dozs of attempts) where I tried your kind suggestions, this is what happened:


    • If you add http:// or https:// in front of 192.168 does it change behaviour?

    That made no difference. It still bumped me into Bing


    • Can you set the camera to the normal subnet of your network?

    I got myself totally confused on how to do this, and therefore I didn't progress far with your suggestion.


    • When you first went to use IE 11 did you enable it in Windows features?

    No I didn't, but when I checked in Progs, Windows settings, it was already ticked. But I still have to run IExplore.exe in admin.


    • Windows key + R, type iexplore.exe -extoff

    That was unsuccessful*Sad



    Yes, in all instances.

    I feel like a phoney as it is now working, albeit intermittently.

    There must be something corrupted in my Win installation. A couple of Window updates ago, all my file structures looked fine, but I had to reinstall most of my programs. Thank you Microsoft. I've had a few strange things since then. One issue is that I can't log into my router. It's IP address is 192.168.0.1 . In Chrome, my usual browser, 192.168.0.1 gives me a no-connection error, and so does IE11. But here's the rub, if I go to my wife's PC, it always works!! Her PC and mine both run the same version of Win10, both Chrome, and we are on a wired Ethernet connection to our router.

    I thank all for your help. I really do.

    Regards,
    Doug

    Error: 0xA00F4271(0xC00D3EA2), while trying to access the WebCam on Windows 10

    Hi Jerote,

    As you are facing issues with accessing the webcam on your device, do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    This issue might have occurred due to corrupted/ outdated drivers on your device.

    Let us try few of the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to check if there is any yellow exclamation point on WebCam in Device Manager.

    • Press Windows + X keys from the keyboard, click on
      Device Manager.
    • Expand WebCam drives under
      Imaging devices
      , right click on the driver.
    • Click on Properties and check the
      device status.

    Step 2: I suggest you to run Hardware and Devices troubleshooter.

    Hardware and Devices troubleshooter
    checks for common problems and makes sure that any new device or hardware connected to your PC is installed correctly.

    • Press Windows key from the keyboard, type
      Troubleshooting and select it.

      Troubleshooting window.
    • Select the Hardware and Device
      options from the list.
    • Click Next to run the
      Hardware and Device
      Troubleshooter.

    If the issue is with the Camera app,

    Step 3: I suggest you to run the
    Windows Store Apps troubleshooter.

    troubleshoots problems that may prevent Windows Store Apps from working correctly.
