Windows 7: Software to trace Folder & Registry permission details

Software to trace Folder & Registry permission details

Dear Experts,

I am running lock down accounts on my machine for certain users and installing software done through Admin account.

I need an advice, whether is there any tools that available to track specifically which folder or registry keys that needed access control in locked users profile. Thus i can give permission only for this components instead of unlocking un-neccessary folder structure.

I notice there is Filemon & Regmon but this is not software specific.

Thanking in advance.

The default permissions for Standard users accounts are already locked down to their maximum.

Installation will be performed in admin mode. But launching it will be in locked user mode. During this time certain function fails due to permission issue. Thats why i was wondering whether any application that can specifically determine which components need to be granted permissions.

Granting permission is easy. There are tools like Wise to repackage it and grant permission selectively. But editing original application is not the way forward. I was thinking to give permission through another script to specific component and deploy it.
