What is the easiest way to set up file permissions for security relevant objects?  I have to set specific permissions to c:\program files\symantec, c:\windows\repair, and c:\windows\system32\config.  I know what type of user (i.e., system, user, administrator) has what type of file permission is Allowed (i.e., Full Control, Modify, Read, Write, etc).  I have to set this up for many standalone laptops and would love to have a script I can run for each computer than setting each of these up manually.

just run CACLS.EXE. it has a very simple interface. ideally also copy XCACLS which has even more functionality; using these, you can create a text file that'll do all of the work for you.
