Windows 7: Windows 7 locked some of my files !

Windows 7 locked some of my files !

Hello
I changed my Windows 7 Beta to Windows 7 RC1.
Now some of y files are locked .
I solved the problem :

Right Click on locked file > Properties > Security Tab > Advanced > Permissions Tab > Continue > Check "Include inheritable"

But I should do this for files one by one !

How can I solve this problem for all of my files ?

Thanks

Perhaps you should allow permissions to all until you have this thing straightened out?

Click Edit and choose "Replace all existing inheritable permissions on all descendents..."

On the Advanced page, there is a button that says "Change Permissions". Click that, then there's a checkbox that has the "replace all..."
