I am in a problem here. A day before yesterday, I was messing up with folder permissions and unfortunately I messed up pretty badly.
The problem is I changed the folder permissions of C:\Program Files and C:\Program Files (x86) to Deny for all users. These included
I was logged in with an Administrator Account. Now the problem is I cannot access the above folders with any user. All my applications installed in those folders do not work.
I tried several solutions available on the net like changing ownership, using THE Administrator account, etc but to no avail and these folders are still locked.
Is there anyway I can access these files or shall I resort to the ultimate step i.e. re-install windows.
