    Just looking for someone's Win8 permissions for C:


    Hi, Windows Eight Forums!

    I accidentally my entire permissions on my C:/ drive, and now my OS is acting faulty... managing to get ownership over the drive, I am now in a position to start putting them back the way they should be.
    Could somebody tell me what their default, unmodified permissions are for their system drive in Windows 8?

    Screenshots would also be greatly appreciated!

    I will then need to give TrustedInstaller back ownership of the root directory.

    You could try a system restore to a point before the mess.

    Or you could try this - it works for win7 - no idea for win8:

    secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose

    I would have used System Restore but I had it turned off.

    I don't know what that command has done for me. It hasn't restored the system permissions.

    Edit: Fresh installed. Was time to, anyway.
