Acces denied for Windows 10 shortcut

I am getting an "Access Denied" message when trying to use the desktop shortcut created in Windows 10 with NSIS. The same with the alphabetical menu.
I had not such problem with Vista and Windows 7, so it is probably related to Windows 10.
I have found that the Security for this shortcut and the program directory created with NSIS is set to special and has no read or execute rights.
I can change this manually, but I am afraid the same will happen to other people to which I distribute my program.
Has anybody encountered this?
Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you
