    I would like to know if there is any way we can control (or modify)the "change owner to" drop box list in windows for a particular resource (for example say a file) using a vbscript or batch script.

    the reason i am asking this is because for usbstor.inf file , i have given ownership access to domain admin group via batch script, but since administrator and my id are appearing in the "change owner to" drop box, i am again able to regain ownership back and then modify the permissions for the usbstor.inf file. I have tried using subinacl for denying the take ownership permission for my administratgor and my id but even then i am able to take ownership back.
    any help to resolve this issue is reallyr really appreciated

    This is the unique right that you CAN'T deny to a administrator : take ownership

    So no solution
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
