Introduction & Question
Dear Fellow Vista Users (everyone who loves it and hates it at the same time).

My history: Started DOS 2.1 -> Windows 3.1 -> Windows 95 -> Windows 2000 -> NT 3 -> Vista Ultimate 64. Network Administrator: Banyan VINES, Novell NetWare, never Microsoft networking. PC Support: Tech Support, User Support, Network Administrator, Systems Development Internet for Academic Institution, 14 years, 25 years in IT industry. Not a novice. Designed initial ARCnet Coax network, Ethernet 10baseT Level 4, Fibre Optic, Radio Network, Home Network, etc. N1 in practice, not in theory - they kept changing the goal posts and increasing the prices!

My Question: How do I reset all the file/folder permissions on Vista Ultimate 64 to enable Administrator access from Windows 2000 machine? Connected from W2K machine to Vista machine as "Administrator" but Vista in all its wisdom and knowledge (@&#*$%) refuses me access. I can read the folder's contents but I cannot save a file. It tells me I don't have the right permission, but I am "attached" as "Administrator", and Administrators have full access to every level. I just don't understand it. Nothing changed since last week when I could do it, today it won't allow me to do anything. The permissions and sharing etc., are beyond my comprehension. It won't even allow me to REMOVE a share!

What is the command-line syntax to reset ALL the permissions to factory default to enable unhindered access to my machine?

Thanks.
