if anybody knows any fix please let me know…

Have you tried checking in taskmanager if any fivem process is open? or just restarting your pc

I checked and nothing was open and I have restarted my pc a couple times, btw whenever I go to task manager then to details I see 3 FiveM_GTAProcess.exe running but it says access denied whenever I try to end the task.

you don’t know any other fix?

so I figured out that there’s FiveM_GTAProcess.exe thats running in the background and it wont let me end task it says access denied, is there anyway to fix this?

Can you please use the search feature in the future instead of creating a topic? This has been answered a lot, including on the docs

https://docs.fivem.net/support/client-issues/#opening-database-privcache-failed-io-error-could-not-lock-file

As for FiveM_GTAProcess.exe, that’s supposed to be running in the background when FiveM is.

Did you not read what I said? I literally said It doesn’t let me delete it and you linked me a file where it tells me to delete the privcache, and you also told me this has been asnwered alot of times I know that but all the answers said delete Priv Cache, dam some people are stupid.

and the other problem which I wrote in my text which you clearly didn’t read was that FiveM_GTAProccess.exe is running in the background when FiveM isn’t. I formatted my PC to fix this issue because there’s no other fix, all the Admins here are useless waste yutes.

so hey I dont want the topic to close so yeah…

So I guess you still have this issue… can you provide some more info do you have any weird software?

habkwe?
