    Just to be clear, are you able to run your command from the first post here successfully in that account? It shouldn't.
    Do you mean my account or the MSI account?

    If you mean the MSI account I would not know how to find it, all I know is whenever I try to delete for example all leftovers of an uninstalled AV installation MSI informs me access denied.

    Yep, I meant the MSI account.

    That would be normal when you try to delete protected system files like that since you do not have access rights by default to do so.

    If you like, you could use the built-in Administrator account when you need to perform actions like that. It's an elevated account that has unrestricted access.

    May I refer you to my opening post, ie- Option 1 taken from your above link, certainly not unrestricted access as shown in my attachments.
    Please correct me if I have misunderstood.
    Once again Brink thank you for your assistance.

    Sorry, I didn't know if you actually signed in to the built-in Administrator account, or just opened an elevated command prompt. This wouldn't be the same, so I was just making sure that you tried while signed in to the actual account.

    Either way, I don't think it'll work unless you run the performance report using the method in the tutorial instead.

    See if you may be able to generate a performance report using the method in the tutorial below instead.

    As a follow up to your above tutorial, another way to obtain the above report.
    Control panel, System and Security, Administrative Tools.
    Right click on wanted app and choose open. see attachment.

    Yeah, that's another good way to open Performance Monitor (perfmon).
