I've spent many hours trying to resolve this
Error Code: 0x80070005 Error Message: Access is denied issue.
I tried many suggestions I picked up searching the internet.
FINALLY, a slight modification to "the fix" that worked for you has now worked for me too. I fixed the issue by going to the
user\username\appdata\roaming\Microsoft\protect and deleting a file called "CREDHIST"....just mnake sure that you do not have Credential Manager at the time.
There was no "CREDHIST" file to be found on my computer so I deleted the "Protection" file and that did the trick.
Thank you so much.
