How to RESET USER PERMISSIONS to DEFAULT for ALL USERS

#1
Hey guys,

I accidentally stopped a user permission change task mid way and now my system is all messed up, programs won't load correctly after reboot, etc.. . I can't change the permissions back because it tells me that I do not have access to certain folders. When I try to find these folders to change them manually, for some reason they are not visible any more. (I have show hidden files to show them)
I tried a system restore and the restore points are corrupt, so, I have been looking for a way to reset all permissions to default or factory setting if you will.

Is there any way to reset all permissions to default without going one by one?

Any help will be much appreciated!!

Thanks
