Just got done with reinstalling Win7 (this time 64 bit) after yesterday morning, my previous install had enough of me trying to fix all of the registry permission issues I was having. I did a blanket command for the entire registry to set the owner to administrators and full control to admins and system and upon rebooting, I couldn't start up any services that allowed for internet access. There should be a tool that checks that these permissions are set to defaults, and not just for the f**king system key under HKLM.

Hate Point #1: I f**king hate the registry.

I did a backup of my documents and did a reinstall, had to check for updates & reboot at least a half a dozen times between software patches, the service pack, more software patches, and patches for updated versions.

Hate Point #2: I f**king hate downloadings**t for an hour, rebooting, and finding more things to download for the software I just installed. Combine thats**t.

...That is all.

Uhm,but why would you change the registry permissions like that? Just leave it alone lol What were the permission problems?

I agree on the updates though. Only yesterday I had 29 updates in one day totalling ~1GB. God help those at home where we have 1mbps internet.

I ran a variation of this, people seem to have bits of success with it.

In my case it came out saying "failed" for tens of thousands of keys even though I ran it under administrative access and SubInACL supposedly is able to overwrite practically anything.

The reason I did it is because I kept running into installation issues where I got "permission denied" errors on installation, and Event Viewer and installation logs usually pinpointed what key was screwed up (usually it was keys that didn't have an assigned owner). I posted a thread on how to do it here.

It got to the point this past week where I couldn't install an update for AVG and I wasn't able to find anything that was pointed to specifically, just a generic error that searches on Google (not Event Viewer itself!) told me that it was usually related to permissions. This was on top of me not being able to install a driver for my phone with the same underlying issue, and updates for Microsoft Office among other crap. I finally had the last straw & said f**k it and just took the nuclear option of running those blanket commands knowing that I had everything important copied onto my external and untainted by any permission settings.

I don't have that issue ever. What DOES p**s me off is when they say somethings running and has to be shut down before I install but it won't tell me where it's running and there's no clues in task manager. You have that user account control crap shut off I assume? Oh wait, I have had that happen before. The you don't have permission crap. Can't think of any particulars though. And yes it's totally stupid. And I am a bad person and run as an administrator all the time which ticks me off even more when it says you need admin privileges to do something. I reinstalled 7 pro 64 the other day. Took 15 minutes to install and over an hour to do all the update crap. Foukin stupid! But that's always been an issue with MS!

Get Hippied out!
