Windows 7: slmgr.vbs - permissions

04 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
slmgr.vbs - permissions

Hi guys!

For months now, I've been able to run Command Prompt as Administrator and then run the command "slmgr /dlv" in order to bring up a very useful little box of information.

Now, I run the command and a little Windows Security window pops up and says it's not possible to open these files (slmgr.vbs) because of my Internet Security Settings, and the line "Access denied" appears in the command prompt.

(Please note that it is not the standard "Permission Denied" error. I will attach an image, unfortunately in Brazilian portuguese, but you guys should recognise it...)

I've switched off Windows Defender... I have Avira Guard enabled but that's never been a problem before...

Any suggestions?

Hey guys...

So now while browsing the net normally, the same error box popped up out of nowhere, with a different file not being allowed to run (adobeARM.exe):

Does this add any clues to this puzzle?

I am trying to figure out if I have a problem or not. Some recent installs of software have failed due to the inability to write to a register key. I have had to abort the install and use regedit to set permissions on the key and then start the install over. So far it has worked. What if the...

Does anyone have a fix or (at least) a reason for this problem? Every time I try to save a file to my C:, it tells me that I am unable to because I don't have permission. My profile is set up to full Admin... I can't figure this out. HELP!! :)
