Modifying Registry on Virtual Box
Sometimes, the main cause of the issue is improper registry entries. In this case, you need to modify it to fix these issues in the following ways:

- Now, tap on “OK.”
- After that, navigate to the following registry command:
“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags \Layers
“C: \ Program Files \ Oracle \ VirtualBox \ VirtualBox.exe” = ” DISABLEUSERCALLBACKEXCEPTION.”
- In case, this particular key is available, then remove it once and try once more. If this method doesn’t function, then you should deactivate your existing antivirus program.
- In case, it still didn’t troubleshoot your issue, then follow these steps:
- Delete the antivirus, check it and then install it again.
- If the issue persists, then try to download any reliable and genuine antivirus software like “AVG” and “McAfee.”
Fix 0x80004005 Error While Accessing Particular Shared Folder or File

- Now, you have to generate a fresh “DWORD” value that is “LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy” if you are using a 32-bit system.
- In case, you have a 64-bit system; then you have to create the particular “QWORD” value that will be “LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy.”
- For either of the two cases, you have to set up the digit value to “1” and hit the “OK” tab there.
Note: Before creating the particular policy value, you have to change the numeric data to “1” by double-clicking on it.
- After that, reboot your device and check that you can access your shared folder or files.
- If the issue still exists, then repeat all the above steps and then follow these steps:

- Now, a run dialogue box will expand, then you have to enter “hdwwiz.cpl” in the provided text box. It will launch “Device Manager.”

- Then, hit the option “Remove Device.”
- When you finish the above steps, then restart your system and then check if the shared files and data are accessible or not.
Removing “Microsoft 6to4.”
If you are still encountering the error code, then you should try to remove 6to4 systems of Microsoft by navigating the “Task Manager.” You have to switch “On” the option “hidden devices” as they sometimes might be concealed by default.

- First and foremost, you have to hit Window + R keys simultaneously.
- Then, enter the keywords “devmgmt.msc” into the provided search bar of the Run box and then tap the “Enter” key.
- After that, hit the “View” tab.
- Now, tap on “Show Hidden Devices” option.
- Next, double click the “Network Adapters.”
- After that, navigate to the “Microsoft 6to4 device” and then right-click it.
- Now, hit the “Uninstall” tab there.
- Note: For all the 6to4 devices, you have to follow the process as mentioned above.
- Finally, try to reboot your system. Hopefully, this method will solve your issue.
