Let me begin by apologizing for taking up so much of your time and the Forum's space. I am feeling embarrassed about so doing and hope I have not messed up big time.
For the purpose of defeating Trusted Installer and deleting Windows Mail, a few days ago while changing ownership and permission in Properties for Windows Mail (X86) to Miki (Michhala\Miki) from I believe was Administrators (Michhala\Administrators), I inadvertently right-clicked Program Files (X86). This brought up Program Files( X86) Properties. I hit Securities tab, which set the 0wner change in motion, and the process
quickly proceeded to change ownership. I immediately realized my mistake and canceled, but I think not in time to prevent ownership changes for Programs beginning with Adobe through Common Files (8 folders). I think what happened was ownership was changed, but not permissions. I come to this conclusion because ownership for the Programs that come after Common files is "Administrators (Michhala\Administrators)", but permissions appear to be the same as those of Programs A through C.
Example: Adobe -- Owner Miki (Michhala\Miki).
SYSTEM -- Full Control -- All checks greyed out.
Administrators (Michhala\Administrators) - -Full Control -- All checks greyed out.
Users (Michhala\Users) -- Greyed out checks beside Read and execute, List folder contents, Read.
Trusted Installer-Greyed out check for List folder contents.
Another dopey thing. I thought I needed to keep some consistency between permissions and owner, so went about changing Program Folders A to C back to Administrators (Michhala\Administrators), but discovered it did not change the sub-folders. Manually changing the sub-folders would have been very tedious, so left owner as "Miki (Michhala\Miki)" until I knew exactly what to do. How can I make this right?
Re Windows Mail (X86) -- Owner currently is Miki(Michhala\Miki); Permission for Administrators (Michhala\Administrators is full control, all bold checks; Users (Michhala\Users) is Full control, all bold checks; Trusted installer is (1) bold check beside List folder options.
Re Windows Mail 64-bit - Owner currently is Miki (Michhala\Miki); Permission for "SYSTEM" is Full control, all greyed out checks; Miki (Michhala\Miki) is Full control, bold checks; Administrators (Michhala\Administrators) is Full control, all greyed out checks; Users (Michhala\Users) is bold checks for Full control, Modify, Write and greyed out for Read and execute, List folder contents, Read; Trusted Installer is List folder contents and Special permission grayed out.
