--or another way to accomplish the following:

I need to add "Everyone" to the security settings of the  /TEMP directory of the local C: drive and give "Everyone" full access.  

Can this be done with a scrip or otherwise?  Thanks a bunch,

If you are in an Active Directory environment, you can set file permissions via Group Policy.

Computer Configuration-->Windows Settings-->Security Settings-->File System.  

Right-click and select "Add File" - you'll be prompted to select the file/folder that you want to set permissions on, and then to establish the permissions that you want to propogate out.

Hope this helps.

I am in an AD environment (just not very knowledgable with everything hidden in there).  That seemed to do the trick - a side question - once those settings are made on the workstations, what would then happen if I removed that GP?  Would they remain or revert back?

Changes to file system security will "tattoo" the workstation, meaning that the settings will remain even after the GPO is removed.
