TrustedInstaller

Just a note to self, when typing in TrustedInstaller into security dialogs in Vista/Windows 2008, be sure to prefix with:     NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller C:\Windows>icacls c:\windows\winsxs c:\windows\winsxs                   NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller:(OI)(CI)(F)                   BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(RX)                   NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)(RX)                   BUILTIN\Users:(OI)(CI)(RX)   The security UI dialogs do not recognize TrustedInstaller just by itself (don’t know why).
