I have a Server 2008 R2 server and one of the Admins was trying to tweak the security settings and completely hosed the box.  the only person who can login is the local administrator.  He took ownership of the C drive and then gave ownership of other folders  to other groups.

is there anyway to reset the file system security to default?

I tried that, no referance to 2008r2, only XP & Vista.  I ran both scripts and deleted one of the problem accounts with no luck

If he did not change the default permission of the root C drive, then what you need is a script to remove security inheritance and add them again for all sub-folders.
I dont know how to develop such script...
