I have had Start 10 installed for several months now. I acquired it via Steam. This morning I was notified of an update and I tried to install it. I was met with the following error: "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." I edited the permissions on the following folders, adding the user "Everyone" and granting it all permissions:
- c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Start10
The problem persisted. I disabled Windows Defender, including Randsomeware folder protection, but the error persisted.
I thought uninstalling it and reinstalling it might do the trick, but found Steam claimed to uninstall it but the program continued to run and the files in the program directory were untouched. So I forced the deletion of all files. Finally the program was gone.
I rebooted, deleted out the Start 10 directories mentioned above, rebooted again, and then used Steam to try and reinstall it. The old error persists and I no longer have the ability to reinstall Start10. Can anyone help me? Note, I am using Windows 10's (build 20H2) primary Administrator account.
