    That link works.
    I believe they were referring to a Server enviornment, but I'm not sure.
    I'm not sure how that would get changed, but it won't hurt to look. Don't change anything without furthur instructions.

    Microsoft used different versions of 'Cacls'. Vista has 'icacls'.
    At a command prompt, type:icacls C:
    Post the results. I'm using Xp (uses cacls) and the result will look similar to:
    cacls C:
    LINDA\LindaJ:F
    NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:F
    BUILTIN\Administrators:F
    LINDA\LindaJ:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
    NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)(IO)F

    A quicker way is to open Windows Explorer, right click the C drive, click Properties, click Security. Everything will be listed in graphical form.

    I had the same problem on my office vista computer.Luckily it got solved just by uninstalling the failed updates.Go to Control Panel>Windows Update>Review Update History.Click on installed updates and uninstall any failed updates. Reboot the computer and you should be ok. Good Luck!!

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002]
    Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\Windows\system32>icacls

    ICACLS name /save aclfile [/T] [/C] [/L] [/Q]
    store the the acls for the all matching names into aclfile for
    later use with /restore.

    ICACLS directory [/substitute SidOld SidNew [...]] /restore aclfile
    [/C] [/L] [/Q]
    applies the stored acls to files in directory.

    ICACLS name /setowner user [/T] [/C] [/L] [/Q]
    changes the owner of all matching names.

    ICACLS name /findsid Sid [/T] [/C] [/L] [/Q]
    finds all matching names that contain an ACL
    explicitly mentioning Sid.

    ICACLS name /verify [/T] [/C] [/L] [/Q]
    finds all files whose ACL is not in canonical for or whose
    lengths are inconsistent with ACE counts.

    ICACLS name /reset [/T] [/C] [/L] [/Q]
    replaces acls with default inherited acls for all matching files

    ICACLS name [/grant[:r] Sid:perm[...]]
    [/deny Sid:perm [...]]
    [/remove[:g|:d]] Sid[...]] [/T] [/C] [/L] [/Q]
    [/setintegritylevel Level:policy[...]]

    /grant[:r] Sid:perm grants the specified user access rights. With :r,
    the permissions replace any previouly granted explicit permissions.
    Without :r, the permissions are added to any previously granted
    explicit permissions.

    /deny Sid:perm explicitly denies the specified user access rights.
    An explicit deny ACE is added for the stated permissions and
    the same permissions in any explicit grant are removed.

    /remove[:[g|d]] Sid removes all occurrences of Sid in the acl. With
    :g, it removes all occurrences of granted rights to that Sid. With
    :d, it removes all occurrences of denied rights to that Sid.

    /setintegritylevel [(CI)(OI)]Level explicitly adds an integrity
    ACE to all matching files. The level is to be specified as one
    of:
    L[ow]
    M[edium]
    H[igh]
    Inheritance options for the integrity ACE may precede the level
    and are applied only to directories.

    /inheritance:e|d|r
    e - enables inheritance
    d - disables inheritance and copy the ACEs
    r - remove all inherited ACEs


    Note:
    Sids may be in either numerical or friendly name form. If a numerical
    form is given, affix a * to the start of the SID.

    /T indicates that this operation is performed on all matching
    files/directories below the directories specified in the name.

    /C indicates that this operation will continue on all file errors.
    Error messages will still be displayed.

    /L indicates that this operation is performed on a symbolic link
    itself versus its target.

    /Q indicates that icacls should supress success messages.

    ICACLS preserves the canonical ordering of ACE entries:
    Explicit denials
    Explicit grants
    Inherited denials
    Inherited grants

    perm is a permission mask and can be specified in one of two forms:
    a sequence of simple rights:
    F - full access
    M - modify access
    RX - read and execute access
    R - read-only access
    W - write-only access
    a comma-separated list in parenthesis of specific rights:
    D - delete
    RC - read control
    WDAC - write DAC
    WO - write owner
    S - synchronize
    AS - access system security
    MA - maximum allowed
    GR - generic read
    GW - generic write
    GE - generic execute
    GA - generic all
    RD - read data/list directory
    WD - write data/add file
    AD - append data/add subdirectory
    REA - read extended attributes
    WEA - write extended attributes
    X - execute/traverse
    DC - delete child
    RA - read attributes
    WA - write attributes
    inheritance rights may precede either form and are applied
    only to directories:
    (OI) - object inherit
    (CI) - container inherit
    (IO) - inherit only
    (NP) - don't propagate inherit

    Examples:

    icacls c:\windows\* /save AclFile /T
    - Will save the ACLs for all files under c:\windows
    and its subdirectories to AclFile.

    icacls c:\windows\ /restore AclFile
    - Will restore the Acls for every file within
    AclFile that exists in c:\windows and its subdirectories

    icacls file /grant Administrator:(D,WDAC)
    - Will grant the user Administrator Delete and Write DAC
    permissions to file

    icacls file /grant *S-1-1-0:(D,WDAC)
    - Will grant the user defined by sid S-1-1-0 Delete and
    Write DAC permissions to file

    C:\Windows\system32>

    That just tells you how to use icacls, because you didn't specify a file, folder or drive. It can get complicated, that's why Microsoft didn't provide a shortcut for it.


    You said all the permissions are there, so nothing needs to be changed.
