How to fix – Error 5: Access is Denied in Windows 10

Q. I have an administrator account with windows 10. Whenever I am trying to install any application (.exe) or Update windows 10 is showing me Error 5: Access is Denied.


Before you run command prompt right click it first, which gives you another drop-down menu.  Select “Run as service” from the drop-down.  Occasionally it makes a big difference.
