The following "fix" is found on Microsoft's site under KB968003, but it's unclear which operating systems it's for.
The instructions call for you to run the following batch file:
@echo off subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f @pause
But I've read that this was written for Windows XP, and that this script will cause permanent damage to Windows 2008 R2 or Windows 7.
Is there any truth to this? Or will it be OK?
