I'm a Microsoft Software Development Engineer on the Trustworthy Computing Team. I've worked at several security related places previously, including Malware Bytes and PreEmptive Solutions.

On StackOverflow I mostly answer related questions, though I occasionally forray into and a couple of others.

I am the author of pevFind, a component of the ComboFix malware removal tool, and volunteer at BleepingComputer.com as a malware response instructor. My Twitter account is @MalwareMinigun.

@newbie: Sorry, was responding as if it were a StackOverflow question. :) In the registry editor go to the security editor and click "Advanced" and owner is listed at the top.

@newbiedoodle: Make a security descriptor with yourself as the owner (InitializeSecurityDescriptor / SetSecurityDescriptorOwner), and call SetSecurityInfo / SetNamedSecurityInfo or similar with it.

Could have sworn I tried this. If you close all the ISE instances and start again does it remember?
