    How can it be done?
    Is it possible through the startup Command Prompt?

    I believe it won't start due to misconfiguration.
    I would probably get access to it, if only I could restore the original settings/permissions of one specific folder.

    ok for basic startup fixes


    boot from the windows CD

    when it loads bottom left corner of the blue screen (where it says install in the middle) click on REPAIR

    Click next a couple of times

    click on command promt

    type as serpate commands (each new line is a new command )


    bootrec.exe /fixmbr
    bootrec.exe /fixboot
    bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

    now restart pc

    These commands have not helped at all.
    Is there a command line to restore the permissions of a Windows folder?

    Hi

    Something that you might want to look into, though it's kind of a long way around the barn to get to the final goal, is to create a Ubuntu disk.
    I've use mine twice in the last week on computers that wouldn't boot.

    It would probably take you and hour or so to download and create one.
    It's a handy thing to have around.

    If you are pretty sure that replacing a specific folder will fix the problem it would work.

    The disk has booted every computer I've tried it on and allowed me to access, copy and paste files to and from the computer.

    Ubuntu bootable disk download.

    Download | Ubuntu

    If you don't already have it you can use Imgburn to make the disk.

    The Official ImgBurn Website

    Hope this helps.

    Mike
