GameMon64.des is GameGuard anti-cheat... They inject DLLs into every process (including Task Manager, Process Explorer and Process Hacker) and hook multiple system APIs to make their anti-cheat 'invisible' by returning fake error codes such as STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED from those hooked functions (which is what you're experiencing).

It's incredibly dumb and the hooks they're using introduce system instability, performance issues and can be bypassed easily (especially on Win10).

for rootkits as GameGuard, use anti-rootkit tools as GMER or any of those: ... &t=10&p=44
