Whenever I right-click on my desktop and click Display Settings or Personalize, this command prompt shows for a quarter of a second (luckily I was able to screenshot it).

It also does the same when I enter ms-settings:display on Run and I don't know why (I am the Administrator and my laptop has only 1 account).

cmd prompt saying 'ERROR: Access is Denied'

But when I search Display settings or Personalize on the Start menu and click it, it opens with no problem. Any idea why does this happen?

EDIT: I have ran sfc /scannow and DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth on cmd and restarted my laptop. sfc and dism output on cmd

However, the problem still exists.

  • I assume you have tried to restart your system? I experienced a similar problem, which was caused by a pending update, the solution to that problem was to install the update by rebooting. If a reboot does not work I would try running and providing the output of SFC and DISM. If no corruption is discovered I would perform an in-place repair.

  • I did restart the system after an update. Let me try SFC

  • I suggest you run and complete DISM first and then run SFC after that. Restart after completing both.
