  1. Error 5: Access denied then failed to enumerate objects in the container. Access denied


    Background: I'm a computer noob, after a bsod I came back to find that a game of mine has stopped starting up, so I've done some research and troubleshooting and I've came to the conclusion there's some sort of permission problem with my program folder which I store all my games in.

    Whenever I try to reinstall my game , error 5 pops up and says I'm unable to open a file, Error 5 also pops up whenever I rename, move or delete a file. I've been trying to fix that by doing the steps in https://windowsreport.com/access-is-denied-windows-10/ . But when I reached step 5 and click apply, I get this pop up for almost every single file in my program folder, now I'm stuck, help please?

    Edit: https://imgur.com/tCGskbj pop up I was referring to

  2. failed to enumerate objects in container, access is denied

    I've gone through the steps that are supposed to allow me to delete a folder but when I get to this step:

    Error 5: Access denied then failed to enumerate objects in the container. Access denied [​IMG]

    The box at the top does not appear on my screen just the one at the bottom. Clicking the bottom box and continuing does not give me the permission I need to delete the folder. What else can I try? Thanks.
