Registry Permissions and Explorer Options
This is a shot in the dark, but I have two problems that I've been searching for the solution to for a while.
The problem is that egg nog does, in fact, go bad after a while. Remember that most commercial egg nogs contain copious amounts of raw eggs, which themselves are bacterial cesspools -- do not keep the eggnog for too long and you'll avoid this problem.
Thanks R1ch. I tried that, and it didn't work.
OK, problem # 2 has been solved. I forgot that I changed the location of special folder "My Pictures" to point to the same folder as "My Documents" since I don't just have one pictures folder, but their all somewhere under "My Documents".
The standard security APIs GetSecurityInfo and GetNamedSecurityInfo can be used to get the security descriptor for a registry key, so you could probably write a simple little app to walk through the portion of the registry you are interested in and report back all the keys that have the PROTECTED_DACL_SECURITY_INFORMATION bit set (meaning they don't inherit from their parent.)
This should do it:
