    How to reset Icacls access denied permissions back to Admin.


    Hi, I've recently run an icacls command prompt, icacls %windir%\system32\config\*.* /inheritance:e as a workaround for the SeriousSam exploit. How do I reset or revert back the icacls default permissions to administrator rights?

    :)

  2. Understanding 'Access Denied' so that permissions can be reverted - icacls and takeown

    • Before taking ownership of files and folders I would like to understand how to view the current permissions so that they may be reverted.
    • I am reciving an 'Access Denied' message to view or save permissions with elevated command prompt for location: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData in Windows 10 enviroment.
    • It looks like that I may need to take ownership first, then can view the permissions, and use something like icacls 'reset' command to fix it afterwards.

    If I try to view permissions:

    If I try to save an ACL file:

    In the answer to 'Understanding how to use Icals & Takeown' the owner of the folder was NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller which may infact may be a standard in Windows 10, though I am only guessing.

    Should I just use takeown, and icals, find out the permissions and then use the reset command.

    Likewise with the ACL, one would need to take ownership before creating, or is there a work around?
