Hi,

Does the issue on local account or domain account?

Try to disable antivirus software temporarily, then check if the issue occur in Clean Boot environment.

Please compare Windows Server 2019 update history for the latest system version, if you are not using the latest, try to update at first to check the issue again.

Please refer to “Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file” error when you try to install, update or start a program or file and try to take owner of system 32 folder and program files(X86) folder to make sure this account have privilege to modify them.

Run command line below as administrator to repair corrupt system components.

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:C:\RepairSource\Windows /LimitAccess
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
