Going through my motherboard installation, I uninstalled my Gigabyte wireless antenna drivers by mistake and I need to reinstall them. I downloaded drivers for the wireless antenna from the website, but when I open the file to run the setup, it says that access is denied. I can't find a solution online.

So I think (keyword think) I managed to reinstall the wireless antenna, but now under Device Manager, the antenna (labelled Intel(R) Duel Band Wireless-AC 3168#2) has a small yellow triangle with an exclamation point next to it. I tried updating the drivers but that didn't work. Not certain what to do from here.
 
First, it's not "wireless antenna" but "Intel(R) Duel Band Wireless-AC 3168" a WiFi adapter. If it's built in MB (which it does look like), try to disable it in BIOS and uninstall it's drivers before switching it on and install new drivers.

I already uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them. Under properties it said the reason why the antenna failed to activate was a code 10.
