Of course you tried as admin? I would also try with a different folder (because Windows is protected).

Try This one:

c:\Windows\Symbols;SRV*c:\Windows\Symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

Also try it with https:

Uninstall and reinstall Windbg is another option.

Hi,

Try this to get WinDbg to use that server and to keep a copy of downloaded symbols in a local store

.sympath SRV*c:\Windows\Symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
