I have a critical Windows Server 2012 area with 5 computers of customers, all Windows 7 Pro.
One of the users has had his computer (laptop) off site this weekend and connected to a starbucks. Upon return, he can connect is more and it is prompted with the following error: \\fileserver\Folder Redirection\username\Desktop is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource ".
So, here's the problem. I can connect to any other user accounts on his laptop without a hitch. His user name can be used to connect to other computers, even if the connection to a computer produces a logon error server is not available.
I tried flushing dns, remove the laptop network and reconnect... but I am at a loss.

HelloI had already tried your suggestion without success, I saw in another forum somewhere.However, I managed to solve the problem of windows in SafeMode via msconfig startup. This gave me access to the file, and security settings showed that it was owned by the deleted user's profile. I deleted this user of all files and restarted in normal mode and the problem was solved.Kind regardsMatthew
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.

I recently changed to use AVG free Antivirus Vista 2010 edition and since then (next day) seems to be locked out almost everything on the computer other then IE. Open any kind of .exe translates into "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You don't have the appropriate permissions to access the item. "I can access the Control Panel, but when I try to run something (a user restore Sys account) nothing happens or I get the same error. I can not even access/cmd?
Operating system is vista 64 bit home premium
Computer has 1 which is defined as administrator SP1
Tried to do a restore of the system in normal mode and safe, the two will not start.
I have a feeling I know what the problem is, that when you look at the properties > Security "Progam files" in the 5 groupnames user administrator has not enabled in the lower area of permissions? Guess a virus has locked all accounts to use the machine key files? (When editing and allowing the admin to have full control etc. in written authorization, I get an "access denied" Message.) Be honest this really problems out of my PC knowledge, I would usually just reformat if I hit I can't solve a problem, but this time reformating is not the best option.
Thanks in advance for any help, I would really appreciate it, it left me speechless!
PS. read through the similar questions and have used the "fix windows' programs, with nothing working or me being not able to access something used.
First of all, I would say that you uninstall security antivirus vista 2010 of computer software, since there are several questions on the computer after installing. This software may have created conflicts between other programs on the computer.
As you face problems to access items from 'Control panel', I would say you visit the security software vendor's Web site and search a tool of suppression using which you can uninstall the software.
Important: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do not disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time that your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.
If questions are set after uninstalling security software, I suggest that you change the security antivirus vista to some else software or contact the vendor of the software for more information.
I would also say that you are investigating the computer by using the methods mentioned in the link below.

Thanks for the reply.
You can try to temporarily disable the antivirus program and check the results. It can also occur if you have not enough permission to run the file.
Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.
