Need Help For PC!

Jump to solution

Hello everyone. First of all, I want to say that I am new to this forum. I don't know if I'll find a way to solve my computer problem here, or if it's the right place. However, I am using McAfee on my computer. But my problem is a little different in nature. That is, when I go to install a game from Steam, Steam missing file privileges error showing. Guys, I have no idea why this is happening and how to fix this error. Please help me to solve this issue.

Thanks for replying. I thought there was a problem with the antivirus. So, I had already tried to install games after disabled the protection of antivirus and firewall. But after that, the issue remained. Yesterday I found this article on Google, it mentions, repair Steam Libraries from Steam. That's why the problem was solved after I repaired Steam Libraries. Now I can install games without any issue. However, the matter is still incomplete to me.

Hi @Montyhermosillo 

Thanks for reaching out.

Kindly disable McAfee Firewall & Real Time Scanning temporarily and check if the issue still persists.

If it does, please follow the below steps

Run Steam with Administrator Privileges

> Press the Windows Logo Key and R at the same time on your keyboard

> Copy & paste %ProgramFiles(x86)% into the box and click OK.

> Right-click on Steam folder and select Properties.

> In the Properties window, choose the Security tab, and then click on Advanced.

> Change the permission for the first two elements in the list (Users and System) to Full Control, by clicking on the Edit button, and then on OK.

> Run Steam with administrator privileges, and check to see if the issue is fixed.
 
You can also find more steps for this issue in the Steam Community. Please refer to it and get back to us if still face any issues.
 
Thanks,
