What is the cause of the “Access Control Login is corrupted” error?
We have analyzed this problem by reviewing various user reports and trying various solutions recommended by other users after they were able to fix the problem. According to our research, several different culprits could be responsible for this problem. Here is a shortlist of possible scenarios that could lead to this problem:
UWP application interferes with edit rights – Applications on the universal Windows platform have been known to cause errors when a user tries to change access rights to a Windows application folder. In this case, the error message can be corrected by closing the UWP applications that are interfering in this process.
A folder or file has a common owner – This problem can also occur when the folder or file in question does not have an owner. If this scenario applies, you can solve the problem by replacing the owner with a user group.
Damaged system files – In rare cases, this problem can occur because one or more system files have become corrupt and prevent changes from being made. In this case, fixing logical errors and corruption problems with utilities such as DISM and SFC should solve the problem completely.
