Are there any commands that can be used to change a folder's NTFS inheritence settings?
I want to de-select the checkbox for "Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object"
Are there any tools in any of the Windows Resource kits that can help with this?

    If you want a command line tool, try xcalcs.vbs from Miscrosoft.
    It  /I switch controls inheritance.
