Joe I found this post of yours from Feb. 24, 2011 when someone was saying they could not delete a jpg and everyone was trying to help. Someone suggested taking universal ownership and your response was:
You can take "universal" ownership by taking ownership at the root of a drive and letting the change cascade through all sub-folders and files. Be prepared for this to take a very long time. Unfortunately, there is no global command.
Taking "universal" ownership may have unintended consequences such as a system process/account not having necessary permissions anymore.
So I am assuming the above is what you meant when you said earlier today that it wasn't a good idea to take ownership of everything. Now my question is: If you take ownership of everything does that mean that it takes away permission of "lesser lights" - the administrator, the user, whatever? Because it appears to me from looking at the security tab that all these characters can have permission to do everything if you want it that way. It doesn't look to me like only one person (character) at a time can have all the permissions. Not being an IT person at a company and needing to know about Windows' policies, I never looked into any of this. We ordinary individual home and small business single users should be able to do what we need to do without messing with Windows policies, IMO. http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...ght=winbubbles
That thread is here, by the way:
