    On my Windows 7 computer, I recently added a password to my Admin account (and added a Guest account). When I try to install a new program (e.g. pCloud Drive), I get the error message "Error 0x80070005 - Access is denied". I am logged in as an Administrator, and Everyone has Full Control over C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local. I have tried numerous fixes, with no luck. Reverting to my old no-password Admin account does not help. and nor does excluding "pCloud_Windows_3.8.0.exe" and "C:\Users\NAME\AppData" from Norton control. I attach a copy of the pCloud log file.

    I'd be very grateful for assistance. Thank you.
