    script to change permissions on Reg Key

    I need to change the permissions on the HKLM software - Sophos folder in the registry so that Administrator is included and has Full Control and Read (for some strange reason administrator does not have these rights) so that i can upgrade my Sophos AV from version 4 to 6.

    Anybody got a script that can do this, or point me in the right direction to gaining one as i have over 300 + machines that need it doing on.

    Cheers

    You can use SETACL to modify registry permissions from the command line (and therefore a script)

    You can use group policy to do this:

    Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Registry

    Add the key and then set security. You'll need to do this on a machine with the software already installed.

    Really? Norton AV has pretty poor reputation when it comes to unistalling.
