    Cannot Start Services:"Access Denied"


    Hi,
    Yea this problem started from no reason, it first happened when my avast warns me that it cant start the service i tried to do that manually but it gives a "Access Denied" warning, so i went to the registry and tried to set the permissions there by going to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services but it also gives me an access denied warning when trying to set the permissions.
    So i tried to reinstall avast but when i run the installation setup it tells me "The Base Filtering Engine (BFE) service is not running wich is normal cause a firewall needs such service to be enabled to work or it wont, then i tried to do the same thing as mentioned before to the BFE service but it has he exact same problem as the avast service.
    Can anybody help me out please am really suffering from these problem.
    Thanks

    If you installed last update (KB3000850), Avast has real issues with it. Check Avast site for solution, they promised to fix it.
