hi guys

i need help or a tool to take back missing permissions, specifically the temp folder in my appdata folder, after removing a nasty rootkit. i tried removing read-only on the temp directory so it will let me download temp files with firefox, but it says i cant.

You could try this but make a Restore Point and backup your Registry first because I've never tried it.
