Applying a Microsoft Security Configuration Wizard policy fails with error 0x80070005 - Access is Denied - Microsoft Support [MS]

Attempting to apply a policy created with the Microsoft Security Configuration Wizard (SCW) to harden your network server security fails with the following error:

0x80070005: Error configuring C:\WINDOWS\security\msscw\ConfigureFiles\Services.inf Access is denied

Symptoms

This can occur due to blocking by certain 3rd-party anti-virus real-time scanner products. 

Cause

To resolve this issue, completely disable or uninstall 3rd-party anti-virus product before applying your SCW policy.  After the policy is applied, re-enable real-time scanning and/or re-install the 3rd-party anti-virus scanner product.
