How do I restore security settings back to default.

Posted by Awinish on February 11, 2011

Few times, it is mandatory to reset the security permission on the all the files & folder after messing around with ACL or with GPO to set an ACL, restraining users from making any changes. Even though machine is disjoint from the domain, but same settings of ACL still remain & we get access denied while doing the changes or creating installation.

I would recommend taking backup of the system, prior to doing reset of security settings,so in case things don’t go as expected, making it more troublesome than easy, system state backup is always handy.

Take a look at below KB, which applies almost all the version of windows except all versions of 2000 & below.
