    Thanks for the guide, but I had trouble with system files, until I have somehow managed to do this:

    Code:
    icacls "%WINDIR%\System32\WindowsPowerShell" /inheritance:r /grant:r Administrators:(OI)(CI)F /t /c

    Hello TairikuOkami,

    If you like, you might test to see how the "Take Ownership" context menu below may work on them.

    Yes I was using that guide as well , but I wanted to automate the process, since Windows Updates recreates some files.

    hey there, I have a situation. Trying to access as Administrator some recently blocked folders (e.g. Documents and Settings, etc) I thought that is a good idea to change the permission of the Drive C:\ switching from Trustedinstaller to current username (admin as well). Now, I've read about the possibility to receive some errors and wanted to switch back using a restore point but the applied setting is still there no Trustedinstaller back.

    I think that I am able to do that manually but my questions are:
    - What is the default user rights setting for C:\ drive in Win10? Will be enough to switch back the Trustedinstaller owner without adding it in Permission entries field and giving the full permission?

    - Reverting back to the Trustedinstaller should I check the "Replace owner on the subcontainers and objects" and "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object" options?
    Thanks,

    Hello Sara,

    Yeah, it's never a good idea to change the owner and permissions of the entire Windows drive like that.

    If you are not having any issues, then I would recommend to not do anything else to avoid possibly causing an access issue.

    @Brink one more question please
    A system restore usually should repair the eventually damage ?
    I've found an old restore point, I've use it and everything is looking pretty fine now if I am looking at the different folder owners including C:\.

    Could be this a efficient solution?
    Thanks,
