    "Access is Denied" in task manager

    Hi Joshua,

    The error message that you're getting may occur due to the restriction for a certain system file or folder. To get the full access on your device, open
    Command Prompt (Admin) and signed in with your username and password and check if you'll still see the "Access is Denied" message.

    The Windows Defender is the default antivirus of Windows 10. You can open
    Settings
    > Update and Security > Windows Defender > toggle off
    Real-time Protection. If you want to permanently disable it, follow these steps:

    • Tap on the Windows key to open the Start Menu.
    • Type regedit.exe and hit Enter.
    • Confirm the UAC prompt to continue.
    • Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender.
    • If you see the preference DisableAntiSpyware on the right, double-click on it and set it to 1 to disable Windows Defender.
    • If the preference does not exist, right-click on Windows Defender and select
      New > Dword (32-bit) Value, and name it DisableAntiSpyware.

    To restore Windows Defender at a later point in time, delete the key or set its value to 0.

    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully.
    For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. Click
    here for assistance.

    You can disable the startup programs using the Task Manager. Here's how:

    • Right-click on an empty area on the taskbar and select Task Manager.
    • When Task Manager comes up, click the Startup tab and look through the list of programs that are enabled to run during startup.
    • Right-click the program and select Disable.

    Feel free to respond if the provided steps work for you.
