I won't do this at home on my home Vista but when I get back to work I will
be resetting a test Vista Business machine to the NTFS permissions that I
used in XP and then forcing all subdirectories to take those permissions.
You could try that. I know with my domain I had a registry key that hid the
security tab on all folders for certain users but not certain folders.
You can try using xcacls.vbs
It will warn you it doesn't support Vista but just modify the script
following the directions - change
Select Case OSVer
Case "5.0", "5.1", "5.2"
Select Case OSVer
Case "5.0", "5.1", "5.2", "6.0"
cscript C:\myfolder\xcacls.vbs c:\windows\fonts
This will show you the permissions on the fonts folder. You can take
ownership or do pretty much anything with permissions.
Try it out.
