Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item"
The Virus make your access permission disables. Whenever you are click the exe files or you are trying to open Control panel a message come like â��Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item"
1: You have a virus or trojan
2: Your antivirus has deleted the file your System requires because your PC was infected by one of the malicious programs.
3: This is a false error message and some malicious program is going to trick you that way.
This problem can be solved manually by deleting all registry keys and files connected with this software, removing it from starup list and unregistering all corresponding DLLs. Additionally missing DLL's should be restored from distribution in case they are corrupted by Iddono. To fix this threat, you should:
1.1. Kill the following processes and delete the appropriate files (but only if they are not in the appropriate Windows folders):
If these files can't be deleted during normal Windows work or recreate themselves, reboot into Safe Mode and repeat deletion. If you do not see all of these files, then they are hiding themselves. You need a clean antivirus to kill those hidden files.
2. Use startups editing program like HijackThis or Autoruns to locate and delete all registry entries associated with the file names above. Or just type 'msconfig' in run command and uncheck the startups
3. If the file in your error message is a corrupted Windows file, you should restore it from your Windows distribution using sfc.exe utility.Insert your xp cd, now goto start up>run and use this command to scan and restore the original file ' sfc /scannow ' ..
4.Install a better antivirus like kaspersky,bideffender update and perform a full scan.
If all these fails, create your backup files.format xp installation drive and reinstall xp.Then install a fresh antivirus programme.
Difficult to tell if this is a legit program or not. But I'm going to assume it is not a legit program.
You could try going to http://housecall.trendmicro.com and running a web based scan and see if it comes up with anything. Also I would recommend trying to preform a system restore and downloading and running Malwarebytes.
Hopefully that should detect and remove anything that you might have on the system. Then grab an anti-virus program, Microsoft's Security Essentials is the free antivirus tool they have which is good. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ or you could try Avast Antivirus which I prefer.
But to be honest the file that it is asking you to download is probably Trend Micro's actual Virus Scanning Engine and not a real virus.
There are many computer viruses that will not allow you to run an anti-virus software.
Try running on online virus scan, and let it tell you the name of the virus your computer is infected with, then do a search on your computer for them. You can disable them just by renaming them.
Then try running your installation file again.
