In Windows 8.1/10 to restore ownership TrustedInstaller
Starting with Vista, Windows operating system began to be used more flexible mechanisms of differentiation of access rights. For example, there is the ability to run programs as administrator, that is with elevated privileges. In addition to these administrator rights, in Windows have rights even higher level, system-owned processes.
For example, the owner of many system files, directories, and registry is the TrustedInstaller service and to have the possibility to edit these data, the computer user must replace the owner himself. To perform such replacement quite simple, but to restore TrustedInstaller rights can be problematic.
The difficulty is that if the window changes owner you type «TrustedInstaller» and then try to check the names, you’ll get an error «could Not find the object…».
The idea is that you’re doing everything right, but there is one little «but». To errors, and Windows understand what you want from it, before the «TrustedInstaller» you must specify a prefix «NT Service». Here it is:
Now, if you click «Check names», the value will be written without any errors. So you can simply restore the rights of TrustedInstaller for almost any system object. The trick works fine in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
