Windows 7: Help with folder permissions!

Help with folder permissions!

Can someone help me with my folder permissions in Windows 7? I tried changed folder permissions in C:\Users and it messed stuff up bad. Whenever I go into Firefox it says "Could not initialize security component..." and my Catalyst Control Center won't boot up properly. This is after doing a system restore to a few hours earlier too. What should the Users folder look like? Is there any easy way to fix this?

Have you tried changing what you changed back to the default settings?

I think i got it. Under the AppData file I just made sure my username had full control and applied it to all the child files/directories and it seems to be going again.

EDIT - Sorry for the double post.

yah the logic if you are admin and you want to share to client. login as admin and make sure the security is everyone or you can add by name to access the folder.

Is there a way to reset all the default permissions?

I tried doing it a few hours before I messed it up and that didn't fix it.
