    Error 5: Access is Denied in Windows 10


    Hi,


    I've tried the way mentionned in the above article but still get to the UAC box and there's no YES box. Tried right clicking the CMD prompt "Run As Administrater" but once again goes to the UAC box with no way to say YES. Has anyone come up with a solution to deal with this error.


    Thx


    Tony

    :)
