      After accidentaly (foolishly) taking ownership of entire system 32 folder, instead of just one file (dont ask…), I have found out that I am not certain how to return ownership to system. Any help is appreciated.

        hey, maybe you can use the script created by JonusC to restore the permissions of all system files.
        Topic: TrustedInstaller Restore v1.0

        It looks like that the icacls command the script is using doesn’t support setting permissions recursive. To get around that use the for loop for the commandline:

        for /F %i in ('dir /s /b') do @icacls "%i" -Parameters

        Hope this helps you a bit!
