Very strange - I did test that, and it worked without problems here.
It sounds like your %userprofile% variable is corrupted somehow - which could lead to all sorts of problems


Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command

REG QUERY "HKCU\Volatile Environment" /S

Post the results.

Ah - I see what it is... the command-line is confused because you have a space in your username.
Simple get-around

ICACLS C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\*.* /save "%userprofile%\desktop\aclfile" /T
ICACLS C:\Windows\System32\bfe*.* /save "%userprofile%\desktop\aclfile2" /T

should work

I zipped the results, since the uploader didn't like the file type.

Also, only one file did not process, at the command prompt.

C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\WMI\RtBackup\bfe*.*: Access is denied.

That's normal (the access denied) - it happens here as well.
The ACLs for the BFE files are OK, and as far as I can tell the rest of the ACLs for the drivers sys files are OK as well.

I'm wondering if the registry is the problem.

If that's the case, then a repair install could be necessary to fix it
Let's take a deeper look at the BFE registry tree...
(I tried to avoid look at this earlier! )

REG QUERY HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE /s >>"%userprofile%\desktop\bfereg.txt"

that'll put 'bfereg.txt' on your desktop - which should be directly uploadable

I'm on a schedule and will try a repair install of Windows. I would like to know, what has it messed up, but this is a production computer. I appreciate all of the help/assistance/sweat/learning experience. I wish I could sit down and study your thought processes.

Thanks!!!

P.S. I'll close the case once I'm sure I've re-installed correctly.
