I have a 2008r2 file server that refuses to run windows update. I have multiple 257 and 491 events in the log. I did some research and found that the default permissions for the local users group might be causing the problem. I have tried resetting the permissions on the drive, but I get Access Denied even when using the local administrator account. Is there a way to reset the default NTFS permissions on the system drive?
