I've just completed a clean install of Windows 10 Pro on my Thinkpad W520 (4270cto) and I've noticed a strange error that occurs when attempting to adjust certain system settings. For example, if I access "Display settings" then "Advanced display settings" and attempt to click "ClearType text," "Color calibration," or "Display adapter properties" I get the following Windows error message as displayed in the attached image:
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
The strange thing is that I can access any of these settings either by finding the
.exe file directly, or via the Control Panel. I am an administrator on this machine and the only one who uses it-- is this actually a security/policy issue? When I first saw the issue, I even re-installed the OS thinking a file might have been missing or corrupted, and the same issue occurs. I've noticed the issue also occurs with settings involving
Any idea what's going on here?
