Checked User account, I am the system administrator. I am logged to the system admin acct. When I try to open The SafeZone browser I getthe following Window 10 error message: Avast SafeZome "Can't open user profile directory because you lack sufficient priviledges. You might want to contact the administrator of this machine". How do I fix this?
