Mark Russinovich released a new very nice tool for IT Pro (System Administrators), AccessChk v4.1.
Windows administrators often need to know what kind of accesses specific users or groups have to resources including files, directories, Registry keys, global objects and Windows services. AccessChk quickly answers these questions with an intuitive interface and output.
The following command reports the accesses that the Power Users account has to files and directories in \Windows\System32:
accesschk “power users” c:\windows\system32
This command shows which Windows services members of the Users group have write access to:
accesschk users -cw *
To see what Registry keys under HKLM\CurrentUser a specific account has no access to:
accesschk -kns austin\mruss hklm\software
To see the security on the HKLM\Software key:
accesschk -k hklm\software
To see all files under \Users\Mark on Vista that have an explicit integrity level:
accesschk -e -s c:\users\mark
To see all global objects that Everyone can modify:
accesschk -wuo everyone \basednamedobjects
