    When I try to open %appdata% it says access is denied


    I know why just don't know how to fix it

    Earlier I had changed %USERPROFILE%\AppData to %USERPROFILE%\Application Data in Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

    It was to fix something where I couldn't access network location


    I changed it back to %USERPROFILE%\AppData but still says access is denied, then added Roaming after that and nothing's changed

    :)

  2. AppData folder access denied

    I installed GTA5 from disc on my Windows 10 HP Laptop.

    When I try to run the program (as administrator) GTA5 automatically downloads a patch for the game.

    Downloads OK but when it comes to install the patch I get the error message:

    Access denied to C/Users/John/Appdata/local/temp/gta_V_Patch_1_0_505_2.exe you do not have permission to access this file.

    I have my settings on the appdata folder to administrator with all permissions ticked for access.

    Can anyone help with this?

    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.
