I lost the security tap settings on some of excel files in a shared directory and I can't return it even by using the local administrator account in windows 2000 advanced server with SP3.

I also should not restore the default security setting by the MMC because this will affect all the other shares for other employees

have you tried with using cacls?

cacls c:\myfolder\*.xls /e /g youraccount:F

where myfolder is the folder container, and youraccount is your user account (or Administrator) ...F is to grant you full control

Let me know what you have under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies/Explorer

Start->Run->Regedit <Enter>
(to get into the registry).

Or if you'd rather,
Start->Run->CMD /k reg query hkcu\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\explorer <Enter>

You can copy the string between -> and <Enter> and paste it into your run line...let me know.
Thanx.

Boy this one's got me kind of stumped - something I rarely admit! :^)

Can you try moving/copying a few of these files out of that folder to another?
Try managing their security now, and if you're still unable, try forcing it from the parent folder down (let me know if you need guidance with this)

I managed to solve the problem by placing the administrators in the security advanced tap as owners for the same infected folder and the objects inside it

Thank you
