Please consider the following scenario:
Got Process Explorer from http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/ProcessExplorer.html
and with its "help" I managed to change the permissions for a service, like this:
Locate the process (avguard.exe in my case) as a child of services.exe, right click it, properties, services tab, permissions. On the permission window it popped up, i've removed all permissions for the Administrators group by checking all Deny boxes and as a consequence, the permissions button under the services tab has been disabled and i'm unable to reset the permissions. Re-installing the product yields messages like "cannot install service", even if everything has been previously removed.
The questions are:
- Is there another way of getting to that dialog where you can set permissions for a service, besides using process explorer?
- How can I reset the permissions, considering that the problem persist even after reinstalling the product?
Thanks in advance
PS: I've used Winspector to enable the Permissions button and the error message is "Cannot open service"
PPS: Please, no guessing. I don't have the time to "try rebooting, try reinstalling". Thanks.
