Dear Community,

 

I started to get a very strange error on a few of my computers. i am currently managing our infrastructure and deployment on all desktops and laptops, but i started to realize and see some strange anomalies on a few of them.

 

Upon trying to install any type of application i get the following error:

Could not set file security for file C:\Program Files(x86)\Application name.

 

I don't know nor if this is been caused by a windows update, patch or any type of new windows feature.

 

Within my organization i run and manage a WSUS server to help and deploy all the new packages to our computers and i use MDT to deploy desktop and laptops. The anomaly has currently appeared on 3 computers now for older laptops but also on freshly installed computers.

 

Is there a known KB that's causing a problem.

Please advise
