When I try to use the search in Windows 7, I received the following message: "Windows cannot access the specific bequest, a file, or a path. May not permissions to access you the item. "I tried google problems and even went to the functionality in windows control panel - program - turning on or off, to make sure that I have the search function on. Also, I read in the community that you can use the search to find a file named regedit.exe to correct the situation. However, I cannot use the search function yet, so cannot find the file in question.
Please contact the Microsoft Community.

I am the administrator and cannot open files or webcasting two other accounts of work very well.
Your administrator account can are damaged. To fix this use http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Fix-a-corrupted-user-profile. If that is the only available Administrator Profile (you need to be an administrator to fix this), enable the Hidden Administrator Account (HAA) using http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?&lang=en&cr=US&guid=&sloc=en-us&dg=microsoft.public.windows.vista.administration_accounts_passwords&p=1&tid=d20f9db4-7b2c-48be-a087-7835dc2a9055&mid=d20f9db4-7b2c-48be-a087-7835dc2a9055. If you don't remember the password, try nothing because that's probably what you (or seller) did during the installation. Once that is done, don't forget to disable the HAA to save it in case it is necessary once again and for safety reasons (since people often try to hack into systems using this account). Do NOT use the HAA as your administrator account because if you lose the only administrator on the system account or it is damaged again, then you're watered.
I hope this helps.

After updating all upgrades of Windows and restarting my computer, I get the error message "windows cannot access the specified device path or file" on all my programs. I tried to go to the 'system restore', but it won't let me access that is. I am running Windows XP on a Dell Vostro 400
Tried to start the restoration of the system from the Windows Advanced Options menu and he tried to restore from the last successful boot - unfortunately the last successful upward included the problem start
Restarted in safe mode and not run Chkdsk/r - no found error - problem persists.
Finally found my Dell operating system disk and went into the Boot Menu at startup screen and set it to Boot from the Dell operating system CD
After the CD started, I went to reinstall Windows, and he gave me an option for repair
The relocation process took about 30 minutes to complete, but he reinstalled all missing or damaged files that were the cause of the problem
Fixed a problem!
Thanks Mike - You're on the right track!
Receives the following message after opening a downloaded game: 'Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You can not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
So I'm at the end of my rope with this one... it lasts for months, and I keep revisitng every two weeks to try and fix that and every time to be completely frustrated. I found this forum tonight, so here goes...
We downloaded a few games on the HP Games Web site. We download them and everything works fine. Then, we will open the games and this pop up error message:
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You can not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
These games used to run fine, and I have no idea why they now have problems. We have a Vista operating system, 1 account who is the administrator, the Parental control is disabled (or if we believe).
If anyone can please help it would be much appreciated! We have a monthly membership to this site of game and continue to accumulate credits, but may not use it. It makes us crazy!
Thank you in advance!
Thank you for posting. It seems that the program is no longer on your computer. This can happen if the game files are deleted, but the game itself has not been uninstalled correctly. I recommend you to download the game again to a location on your computer where you can easily find and install it. This should fix the problem.
Please let me know if this helps you.

Hi I encounter an error message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You don't have appropriate permissions to access. »
The error message every time I click on administrative tools of the window (including the Control Panel, windows update, the Windows Explorer, etc.) but without impact on other programs I have.
I rebooted in safe mode and discover that everything works fine (no error message will appear when you click on window management tools).
I proceed to do a clean boot-> first disable all services of third parties (message yet to come), and then clear the components of the service windows (message yet to come)
I tried to type "explorer.exe" in the start menu-> search field then click right highlight to run with administrative rights, then received another message of error "Server execution failed".
I am the administrator account on this PC - and have full access.
The error seems to have appeared on 11 August after Windows Update the following:
Update of security for Microsoft Windows (KB2536276, 2556532 2559049, 2560656, 2563894, 2567680), and
Update for Microsoft Windows KB2563227
A security update for the Microsoft.net framework 4 client profile (verson 1)
There is no installation of any software or updates outside the windows update.
I also tried to restore the windows before August 10, 2011, but that did nothing.
As the error prevents me to access any object Admin window - I'm unable to retrieve the product ID and write to Microsoft Tech and ask for help.
I hope some of you can offer the suggestion of possible solutions (I really want to re - install window 7 and other software, I'm sure).
My solution works in about 2 minutes, it's a very weird error and only happened to 3 jobs in the last 3 years, this solution does not need to create another account if local administrator is active and allows access to the corrupt user documents ect.
Log in as the local administrator or a domain administrator
If the local administrator is not activated refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555910 and after completing these newspapers of steps on the local administrator account.
Locate the user for example files. C:\Users\[username]\
If you see no AppData press Alt to see the toolbar at the top of the window, select Tools > folder options, go to the view tab and select "Show hidden files, folders and drives" click OK.
Go to AppData\Local
Select all (Ctrl + a).
* Do not delete credentials (as it will remove their wallpaper) *.
This allows to release the error.
