    WindowsApps reset default permissions


    Is there anyway to reset the permissions back to Account Unknown() for the WindowsApps folder? I wanted to have a look in it, I changed the ownership to myself and now I just want to reset it back to the default. The default was Account Unknown(sequence of some kind), but you can't just set it back. Anyone have any clues?

    Thanks

    If you have set up System Restore Points on your PC you will be able to restore your system to an earlier point in time. This should reset your system folders back to where they were.

    Thanks, but using a restore point is going to create more problems then help.

    So let me ask, I have changed the owner of the WindowsApp folder to myself. Everything "seems" to work fine but does anyone know if this could create problems down the road?
