I downloaded a game mod that came with a.Exe file and ran it to install it; 5 seconds later, I get a barrage of Avast popups saying threat detect/blocked.
I immediately paused what I was doing and ran a complete machine scan, which revealed that the malware had spread to all of my open programs and Windows files. I had 300 infected files and was able to remove all but 14 of them. The ones I couldn’t delete gave me the Avast Error: access refused (5) and Avast Error: Could not locate the machine files messages (2). I’m not sure what Access denied means; I tried looking up the issue but couldn’t find anything other than uninstalling anything ( my guess is there are many different ways this can infect you and where it is located).
How to fix unable to save permission changes – access is
I’m currently evaluating new audiovisual solutions for my business. I’m actually using Vipre. With every solution I’ve sought, I’ve run into an odd problem. When I install a new antivirus software, printing stops and a “Access Denied” message appears. This problem will occur with both local and network printers. Access is refused also by the MS XPS writer. This first appeared in an ESet examination. Their assistance was ineffective. Even uninstalling the software didn’t solve the problem. I had to restore the system to a point just before the ESet installation. The print functions were restored as a result of this. I figured it was an issue with ESet. I just tried AVAST and got the same result. When printing, the message “Access Denied” appears. The print functions were restored after removing the program in this case. Has someone else had a similar experience? Vipre does not have any issues in this regard. Reinstallations on the test machines go smoothly.
I had switched off the Eset firewall. This was my first experiment. I’m working on a new idea right now. Vipre was installed on the machines I tested it on. Before installing Eset and Avast, I used Vipre’s removal tool to uninstall it. I’m currently testing Avast on a new workstation that has never had any antivirus software installed. In a few moments, I’ll share the results.
Unable to stop service: the operation could not be completed
Although my system is in German, I believe you will understand the issue. For aswbiDSAgent, my current Anti-Virus software, I try to set “start form” to automatic (Avast Anti-Virus). I have to manually start it every time, which is obviously inefficient.
Second, each Windows Service has Registry keys that specify the Start type and other attributes. These are located in the HKEY LOCAL MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001Services folder and can be used to modify the start form. However, ownership of these Services may have been set to TrustedInstaller to prevent even an Administrator from altering the data. To do so, you must first take possession of the key.
Like OP, I attempted to adjust my AVG Antivirus service but received the same error message. Initially, I considered modifying registry values in [HKEY LOCAL MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices*]. I didn’t have the permissions to change the “Start” dword value, which corresponds to the “Startup form” options, as predicted.
I couldn’t give my user the requisite permissions (Full Control), so I used a tool called SetACL, which has come in handy before in similar situations. I wasn’t able to do anything this time, though. SetACL, on the other hand, provided me with the following information:
Fix unable to terminate process ‘access is denied’

I thought it was, but I wanted to double-check to make sure it wasn’t anything special to my system. While I recognize that this “self-defense feature” is suitable for most users, I am saddened that it is being imposed on all users.
I’m sorry, but I don’t understand your disappointment. Possibly only a small percentage of AV users are interested in turning off the service (setting startup type to Manual is disabling from practical point of view). This minor component has the ability to disable the self-defense feature in your settings (Troubleshoot). As a result, your dissatisfaction should be directed at your own inability to check available settings.
