"users\user\start menu" ... what is it? TCC says it's a junction with attributes _HS_D___L___I_ (a link to "...\appdata\...\start menu"). TCC can enter it with CD but it appears empty to TCC. In Explorer it looks like a shortcut but trying to open it results in "Access denied" even though properties\security says I have full control. Why does it act so strangely? Why can't I enter it with explorer? Why can I enter it with TCC? Why does it appear empty to TCC?
