Updated 2012-May-14: Found subinacl did not work on Windows 7 x64. Found superior working tool (SetACL.exe) from the following site: http://sourceforge.net/projects/setacl/files/.  I confirmed it worked and updated the script accordingly.

This sample script utilizes a Microsoft tool “subinacl.exe”. This can be downloaded and extracted using 7-zip or equivalent (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=23510). It uses this tool to take ownership of a vital registry key. There are no other pre-requisites to support using this tool. It has been tested in SCCM 2007 and MDT 2010/2012.

Updated Download Sample (x64):

Note: If using x86, replace setACL.exe with x86 version from the developer’s website listed above.
