  2. Unable to access file after upgrading to Windows 10. Error-operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software.

    Original title: Win 10 files problem

    I have just updated win7-> win10.However after updated to win 10, all of files are unopenable.

    For example, click on Microsoft Words and it says : ''operation did not complete successfully bc the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software.''

    [Help] I always get this error: error 0x800700e1: operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software.

    When i tried to move my file to another, this error pops up: error 0x800700e1: operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software.

    I've already turned off Windows Defender just to move it but still doesnt work.

    I Have no antiviruses. Ive tried to disable Windows AntiSpyware from regedit and still doesnt work.

    Please help

    Now i have a different problem since i fixed the other by going to gpedit.msc and disabling User Account Control: Turn on Admin Approval Mode. But now it says operating did not complete because the file contains a virus or unwated software (while its safe and i have disbled the intivirus). I have already done those steps out of this post without result. Operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus
