I can’t open files in my windows. I get this error message “Windows even not access to the specified device, path, or file? You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item” why it comes? I can’t even open my programs like burning software. As I am the administrator of this computer I should have full access to all the programs. But I can’t even setup new antivirus. But I did not lock any option or change any settings of my windows. Help me guys!
Cannot open files and programs in Windows.
It seems you have a malware activity in your PC, First analyze what happening in your PC, Just go to task manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del) then click on processes tab and check the processes running on your PC.
If some processes with not likely names like "asd234ad23sd" and all just end the process.
Now go to run either through start or by pressing winkey + r, just type %temp% and then delete all the files in it, Usually most of the viruses are spread through the temp folder.
To find help related to that visit http://sanjayrnath.blogspot.in/2010/02/shortcut-to-open-temp-folder.html
You will find details regarding that in it.
There are more advance works to control the malware activity go to:-
Now you are done with some of them now install a good antivirus, i personally recommend using kaspersky internet security, download a trial version and scan your PC completely.
If you are all done with the above steps do a system restart and you are done. You can access your files.
Hope that solves.
