Corrupt/Locked Out ACLs

    I have a file that I can't seem to reset the permissions on. As
    Administrator, I can't read, copy, delete, view permissions, or do anything
    to it. Everything returns "Access Denied".

    As the local Admin, I've tried taking ownership via the UI; no luck.

    I've tried the takeown and subinacl tools, both under the local admin (using
    runas) and the domain admin (interactive); no luck.

    I've tried the W2K03 versions of the xcacls and takeown tools from an XP
    machine under the domain admin (using runas); no luck.

    Any ideas?

    I was banging my head over a similar problem once, then it dawned on me
    that it might not be ACL based and could have been exclusively opened. It
    was :)
