Method 1:  Uninstall Third-Party Anti-Virus

It has been observed that if you don’t have the Pro version, where Group Policy is utilized to control settings, your third-party antivirus might be to blame.

So we propose that you first delete your antivirus software and instead try running Windows with the built-in Windows Defender, which always provides the greatest Windows performance with the fewest hassles, and is from Microsoft, which understands how to secure their operating system the best.

If you don’t know how to do that, follow these steps given below

  • Step 1: You first need to press the Windows key + R to launch a Run
  • Step 2: Type appwiz.cpl into the Run dialog and press Enter
  • Step 3: Now you will be presented with a list of all the programs installed on your computer. Locate the third-party security program you want to uninstall in this list, right-click on it and click on Uninstall.
  • Step 4: Go through the uninstallation wizard to uninstall the application.

After the whole process completes, you have successfully uninstalled your third-party antivirus.

Method 2:  Check For User Account Corruption

Account corruption may be to blame. It has been observed that many users found that their user accounts were corrupted, which in return gave rise to this issue. So we recommend you check if your account is corrupted.

If you don’t know how to do that, then here are some simple steps to take

    • Step 1: Go to Search, type regedit, and open Registry Editor.
    • Step 2: When Registry Editor launches, navigate to the following key:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionProfileList
  • Step 3: To discover out which user account each S-1-5 folder belongs to, double-click the ProfileImagePath field.
  • Step 4: Once you’ve located the corrupt user profile (which doesn’t end in.bak), double-click RefCount and alter the Value data to 0 before clicking OK. If this value isn’t available, you’ll have to manually generate it.
  • Step 5: Now double-click on State, make sure the Value data is again 0, and click OK.
  • Step 6: Now all you need to do is to close the Registry Editor and restart your PC.

If this approach did not help you recover your user profile, you may try creating a new one and then transfer your files from the old one.

If the issue persists then we recommend you to try the next method which is given below as follows.

  • Step 1: Press Win + I to open the Settings app, then choose Accounts.
  • Step 2: Click Family & other people on the left-side pane and then click Add someone else to this PC.
  • Step 3: Just a moment and a Microsoft account window will open. Then click the link, I don’t have this person’s sign-in information.
  • Step 4: On the next page, click the link Add a user without a Microsoft account.
  • Step 5: Now enter a username for your new local account and click Next.
  • Step 6: Now click Next after that you’ll be sent back to the Accounts panel, where you’ll see the newly created local account. The newly formed account is set to be a normal account by default. Click on the account name, then change the account type to make it an administrator account.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1.) How Permissions Are Handled When You Copy and Move Files and Folders?

An object inherits rights from its parent object by default, whether it is created or copied, or relocated to its parent folder. The only time this rule is broken is when an object is moved to a different folder on the same drive. The original permissions are kept in this situation.

There are some additional rules used in this process, these are as follows:

  • Everyone group is granted Allow Full Control permissions to the root of each NTFS drive.
  • Deny permissions always take precedence over Allow permissions.
  • Explicit permissions take precedence over inherited permissions.
  • Permissions are cumulative. This means that a user’s permissions are the result of combining the user’s assigned permissions and the permissions of any groups the user belongs to.

2.) How To Modify How Windows Explorer Handles Permissions?

Modify the registry as follows to change this behavior so that the object inherits the rights from the parent folder:

  • Step 1: Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
  • Step 2: Locate and then click the registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer.
  • Step 3: On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
    • Value name: MoveSecurityAttributes
    • Data type: DWORD
    • Value data: 0
  • Step 4: Exit Registry Editor.
  • Step 5: Make sure that the user account that is used to move the object has the Change Permissions permission set. If the permission is not set, grant the Change Permissions permission to the user account.
