Hey ashyo,

1. Download and install SubInACL from Microsoft. Install SubInACL in the default location.
2. Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > RIGHT-click Command Prompt and click Run as Administrator
3. In the cmd prompt, type notepad reset.cmd and click yes to open Notepad.exe and create a new text file named reset.cmd
4. Copy and paste the following contents into reset.cmd:
cd /d "%programfiles%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"

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
5. Save and close reset.cmd.
6. In the cmd prompt, type reset.cmd and press enter to run the SubInACL tool. This will take several minutes to complete.

It simply resets the permissions of all files and registry keys on the drive so that administrators can perform whatever operations on them that they wish.

If it doesn't work, we will need to adjust the commands slightly to also include your username... but we'll get to that if we end up needing to. :)

No; let's try something different.

What is your Windows username? To find out, press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC, click the Processes tab, and note the username listed in the User Name column.

Also, where is OTL.exe currently located? On your desktop?

Hey ashyo,

It looks like you never posted a topic in the Malware forum about checking for infection. You may want to perform that step before we go any further with permissions repairs, as nothing is going to work properly if you are in fact infected.

If you still wish to delete OTL, here is a method of how to take ownership of a file:

http://www.vistax64....-ownership.html

Simply follow the instructions on that page to take ownership of any file or folder to which you are denied access. Afterwards, you will be able to manipulate them as you see fit.

Okay. Remember, you need to post the final topic for malware check in the proper forum; we can't help you on this one, as we are not allowed to per the forum rules. :)
