    UAC.. NO YES BOX.. ACCESS DENIED.... NET USER


    Trying to recover my HP. Everything I try I get the dreaded UACmsg. If I try to disable it.. I'm always asked for a password I don't remember it. So then I want to say YES to the UAC question. BUT THERE IS NO YES BOX . When I try to fix that.. I get theUAC prompt again. If I use regedit.. I get as far as the key insoftware..microso..windows.....system.group policy but after I enter a 0 to the key.. I get "UNABLE TO SAVE CHANGES or ACCESS DENIED". I think this started with a remote repair from a rookie.


    Ive been working on this for hours..days...


    Cant even get in to do a backup and reinstall...make recovery disk..chg user account..etc.


    PLEASE CAN ANYONE GET ME OFF THIS TRAIN TO HELL?

    :)

    net user administrator /active:no keeps saying access denied.

    Hi Rebekah,

    It's possible that you're not using an elevated command prompt, causing the Access Denied error. We suggest following these steps to properly disable the built-in administrator account:

    • Right-click the Start button.
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Copy and paste net user Administrator /active:no and press
      Enter
      . If the command isn't successful, please post a screenshot so that we can study it further.

    Let us know if you're able to hide the administrator account after following these steps.

    net user administrator /active:no keeps saying access denied.

    Can't send screen shot. Entering Command prompt(admin) get "Do you want this app..." box with NO as the only choice. I have tried everything I've found on the net to enable the built in administrative account to no avail. Running Win10 OS build: 16299.125.
    HELP!

    Error Access Denied while acessing the folders from User> AppData folders on Windows 10

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing with access files and folders.

    Do let us know the complete error code/ error message of this issue?

    As you have tried with providing the permissions to each folder and issue persists after the restart, try the below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Try to disable the third party anti-virus software if installed any and check.

    Step 2: As, as a work around, I suggest you to enable the built-in administrator account and check if this issue persists.

    Steps to enable Built-in administrator.

      • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
      • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open Command Prompt.
      • Type the following command and hit Enter:
    • net user administrator /active: yes (Check for the spaces)
       4. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.  

    Note: Please follow the same steps and type net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done. 

    Step 3: I suggest you to refer to the below Microsoft article with 3-diffrent issues related to accessing the files and folders and check if it helps.

    "Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue to assist you further.
