restore default security permissions in windows vista?

Posted: 10-19-2008, 07:55 AM

Whilst trying to make notepad++ the default notepad I tinkered with the
permissions.
I changed the settings so that any user listed had full control over my
PC. Now I want to change them back & only allow the Administrator to
have full access. How do I do this please? :cry:

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way if
they get angry.............they're a mile away...........shoeless!

Use ICACLS to reset the permission. It is a command-line tool that displays
or modifies discretionary access control lists (DACLs) on specified files,
and applies stored DACLs to files in specified directories. The following
links should provide insightful info regarding the usage of this tool:
