Error:

Mmc.exe Access Denied Error 5 for services.msc

MMC.EXE was not associated with .MSC extension files. I associated again and since then had no more problems opening my shortcuts to .msc files.

Solution: go to the control panel, default program, find the .msc file and associate it with the MMC program (c:\windows\system32\mmc.exe).
