Error: 0xC004F025 Access Denied

PROBLEM: You are trying to use cmd prompt and you get the following error:

Error: 0xc004f025 access denied: the requested action requires elevated privileges


  • Go to Start --> All Programs --> Accessories.
  • Right click on Command Prompt.
  • Click on "Run as Administrator."

This will allow you to use cmd prompt fully.

WHY: Windows does this to protect several functions from idiots who don't know better and try to mess with things that result in their computer going kablooie.
