Windows 7: Access denied, error 5

Access denied, error 5

Hello,

I'm the sole user/administrator of this computer, therefore I should have the ownership of files, folders.

However file access (i.e. installation) is always denied upon double-click, only the right-click run--> as administrator works. Double-click should work, too.

Any suggestions?

Thank you
barsim

Anti Virus may block this as a lot of malware runs from that folder who has rights on the folder system should have rights as installs are run as system

Sorry about the very much-delayed answer.

I should have described my problem more clearly.
Certian installation/.exe files do not work by double-click even if disable my antivirus, only by right-click then running it as administrator as opposed to the correctly functioning my other PC with same OS.
