I have experienced some weird behaviour after I followed a tutorial on how to replace the Windows 7 start orb. The tutorial advised me to take ownership of the full Windows folder (I also took ownership of all the files and subfolders, etc.).
After a restart I couldn't access my network shares any more (worked perfectly fine before). I can still ping all the computers in my network but I can't access their shared folders.
Another thing I noticed... I use a MCE (Media Center) remote control and some special buttons like play/pause etc. stopped working.
I'm not sure if it's related to taking the ownership of the Windows folder, but I think that's the most likely cause of my problems.
Anyway... is there a way to fix this? I already tried changing the ownership back to TrustedInstaller for all the (sub)folders and files, but that didn't help. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
