Hi, trusted installer running or not (it is trigger start in normal mode ) has nothing to do with permissions, Its ACL's, and without ownership, you will have access denied, windows does not turn security off in safe mode... this is poor advice.

Hi, jenae!
Well, I am not going to argue with you, since that would be against the Forum Rules, but I have personally deleted several left-over Anti-Malware tools' subfolders from the ProgramData, AppData\Local and AppData\Roaming folders in Safe Mode, of which all three were owned by TrustedInstaller.
However, I now understand why that does not also apply to the WinSxS folder, because it is a system folder in itself, so I guess I made an assertion which obviously was wrong, for which I would like to apologize.
