Very often problem that arrives on Windows OS platform is that folder access permission denial.Those are the popups “Access is denied” show up when you access a specific folder .This is a common issue in Windows ,the reason due to fact that specific  user  rights are disabled for these folders(requiring administrative privileges).There are some files and folders that are meant only for Administrators to access, if you are not an administrator then you cannot access it and will instead get Access Denied error.

Might be several reasons ,such as  Windows itself lock access to folder as a result of enhanced security, or a specific application could lock your folder permissions, or due to UAC , or it could be some sort of viruses playing with your files or it could be your  favorite antivirus locked the folder.Common solution is by taking  ownership of the folder by right  clicking  it’s properties.ie The way to fix this error is to give yourself permission to access the file or folder. This can be done by going to Properties and then navigating to Security tab.But there are  worst  case scenarios  even by taking ownership doesn’t solve the problem.
