ICACLS and "Take Ownership" both fail similarly
My PC is pretty messed up, but I'm trying to get it back into shape. I can always right click on a folder or file, and then go to properties, and then to security. Frequently there are no permissions established for this object. So, I can edit and add, but it's pretty tedious.
"Take Ownership" is a right click option (I don't remember where I got that from), but it fails frequently.
I've tried ICACLS C:\* /grant Administrators:(f) /grant Charley:(f) /grant Users:(rx)
But this also fails similar to "Take Ownership". What happens is a windows dialog window pops up stating that Microsoft Windows Operating System has stopped working, and then it let me close the program. Later a window will open asking me to check that I'm up to date (I am).
If any of you forum citizens can help me out, I'll be your friend forever.
I'm in shape; round is a shape.
