comment “CREATOR OWNER” NTFS group always has special permissions in windows
With both your and @JamesRyan explaining this, I now understand what is going on: The basic GUI will only show permissions that apply to "this folder, subfolder, and files". Since CREATOR OWNER can't apply to an actual object, it will always be a special permission since it can't apply to "this folder".

comment Advantages of running print services on Server 2008 R2?
+1 for your analysis of when to use a Hyper-V. My guess is that it would be a waste of license in this case.

comment Batch File help needed for PsList/PsKill when a process is over a specific age (elapsed time)
You can do this in a batch file, but you have to use the "dreaded" FOR loop to parse out the data you don't want. I recommend that you use powershell since it is so much more powerful.If you used a batch file, your code would look something like: FOR /F "tokens=8" %%A in (pslist) DO {

comment Win7 Domain User Profile- Desktop Icon management best practices request
@TomO'Connor - So you're basically saying is to keep folder redirection and use offline files to keep everything synced? The link above talks about using BranchCache which seems to be more about caching files from a central data center on servers at remote sites. I don't think it applies to the situation I am in.

We've tried this and it brings up a host of unintended problems. It does work, but it adds a level of complexity that we are trying to avoid.

comment Win7 Domain User Profile- Desktop Icon management best practices request
@TomO'Connor - You are missing the point of the question. I want to be able to have a good end user experience when the computer is disconnected from the network. Right now, the computer is unusable since the folder redirection of a user profile folder to a network share causes us to "loose" the profile. The desktop and start menu become blank and the only way to open a program is to navigate Program files. Something our users don't have the skill to do.

@pauska I edited the above post to be more specific. When I say "network is down" I mean there is no connection. Generally, this happens when someone unplugs a machine.

comment How to get DCOMperm.exe from Microsoft
Thanks @jscott, that seems to have done the trick. Unfortunately, fixing this causes even more errors to crop up. I think that has more to do with the program throwing the errors though.

Looks like the sample is C++ code. you have to also get Visual Studio C++ and it seems to build properly now.
