Re: Quick way to reset all security permissions to default in windows 7

To restore security setting for Home editions, either use the Microsoft Fix, System Restore or a backup.Note After security settings are applied, you cannot undo the changes without restoring from a backup. If you are uncertain about how to restore your security settings to the default settings, you must make a complete backup that includes the System State (the registry files). Items that are reset include NTFS file system files and folders, the registry, policies, services, permissions , and group membership.

I would recommend you to download and install the microsoft fixit utility if certain security had a negative effect on the system. It is an automatic fix which is available in english for all the version of windows. You can also run the fixit application from a flash drive or from a CD so that you can run it on the computer that has the problem.

This can be achieved by restoring back your system to a date where the certain security settings were not applied and hence i would recommend you not to change the security settings if you are not very much familiar about the security settings. Hope that this will definitely help you to restore the security settings to the default.
