The same for all files recursively
icacls c:\* /grant Administrator:(D,WDAC)
"Run Disk Cleanup and remove all but the last restore point. See if your System Restore cache and Recycle Bin size is set at a reasonable level (Say 1024Mb) on each drive, and reduce the IE Temporary Internet Files cache and History cache to the minimum. Install CCLeaner and clean out all of the junk files. Unhide all files and folders and remove the hotfix uninstallers ( $NTUninstaller$ ) from the hidden C:\Windows folder and remove their entries from Add-Remove programs. Then remove the contents of:
The C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Installations folder The C: WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder The C:\WINDOWS\Temp folder The C:\Windows\pchealth\helpctr\Datacoll folder, and... The C:\Windows\Prefetch folder
(You can add these folders to EmpTemp if you have this program installed.) Then run chkdsk and defrag."

Missing DLLs to run trivial applications?
Download the redistributable VC6 support DLLs from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q259403/
Extract to c:\windows\temp and then:
Ignore errors about DLLs that were not copied; that just means that they already exist.
After that you will be able to run just about any trivial app.
