    There's a big round red cross at the top left of the window . then it says "windows cannot access the specified device , path or file . You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the file . " That's what it says when I try to install ccleaner . I have been having a lot of trouble running some software . I used bing to try and find an answer that's the site I was on . it told me about
    Hi,

    If any of the suggestions do not work for you, do the following:

    1. right click the application in question

    2. at the bottom of the properties screen (under the Advanced button) there is a button that says "UNBLOCK" (there should be a security message that states that this file has been copied from another computer...)

    3. Press this button.

    this worked for me.
    which did nothing for me , then further down the page the method I tried was .
    This problem usually on the computers .Now try this.

    My Computer--->right click on C drive--->properties--->in the upper tab there is security tab click on that

    After doing this,In security tab there is Groups& Users ---> administrator ----> Permissions ....Give full acess to administrator means that check all the allow except of special permission....

    When I right clicked on the C drive I think I must have deleted the administrators that were on there at first , now I would like to start again and put the right . i'm not to teckie minded so you will have to give exact details , my windows is windows 10 64bit , thank you for any help .
    There was a link I had to take out , that's why I couldn't say what site I was on . sorry I really am quite numb .

    If that really is the case I would suggest reinstalling Windows. It is the easiest way to get things right, without going to deep in technical details of Windows
    Go to All Settings > Update and Repair > System Repair

    When I right clicked on the C drive then selected properties I think it had about 4 options NettleWarbler , Users / groups something like that but I deleted them all to try to bypass the administrator rights hoping ICOfx would install but it didn't . now when I go to right clicked on the C drive Properties / security I get Group or user names NettleWarbler (DESKTOP-3ENE867\NettleWarbler)

    Not quite sure where you saw these options, right clicking on C: gives me the properties screen of C: with tabs Security, Prev versions and so on.

    Where exactly did you remove those items?

    B.t.w. you can always download W10, make a bootable device and start the installation from there

    Ah I see, I think you did not remove Admin accounts, you removed the rights from accounts.

    Once removed, you lack the rights to restore them.

    I see no other option as reinstalling. Not sure whether you will be able to keeping your files. Sorry
