Restore TrustedInstaller back to a windows server 2008 R2 folder

I had to remove this to update a file. When I try to put it back I go through the process and now it's not listed under owner, go to other users or groups.   Enter NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller  and it can't find it.  The User Group or Built-in security pricnicapl is selected as object type.  Is there a different name in Windows server 2008 R2.  Need to put the folder back to the orginal settings.

Please help.

You've tried this?
   Right mouse button click on the file and choose Properties
    Click Security tab
    Click Advanced button
    Click Owner tab
    Click Edit button
    Click Other User or Group and type in NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller
    Press Ok on all dialogs until all property dialogs are closed

I also checked all the option under object types and still says it cannot find it.  Can I do this some way from a command line?

On the folder properties I can see the TrustedInstaller and it has the full control but it won't let me assing ownership back to it.

Your solution was correct.  I was pointing to the domain instead of the server name is why it was not finding it.  Will close this question out.
