if you are facing some issues, open the command prompt using Administrator privileges and try running the command again. if it doesn't work try this.

npm uninstall -g angular-cli to uninstall the angular/cli.
npm cache clean to clean your npm cache from app data folder under your username.
use npm cache verify to verify your cache whether it is corrupted or not.
