I modified the default permissions of "Program files" and now some things aren't working (Windows Mail isn't opening)

What are the default permissions of "Program files" so that I can reset it?

Otherwise here's the entire default permission set:

Some of them need to be specified with their full object name, e.g. "TrustedInstaller" is actually "NT Service\TrustedInstaller", and there's "ALL RESTRICTED APPLICATION PACKAGES" which I couldn't find the full object name of.
