Restore trustedinstaller as default owner of a file or folder in windows

We had a server with NTFS permission messed up on C:\Windows\System32 folder.
In order to revert to its original settings, I had to keep Trusted Installer as default owner for a few folders.

1) Go to File / Folder properties
2) Navigate to Security tab
3) Click Advanced button
4) Navigate to Owner tab (for Windows 8.1 and 2012 Server, click on Change, next to owner, once you at the "Advanced Security Settings" for the file/folder)
5) Under "From This location" Select local computer
6) Type "NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller" under object name and clock OK

Should be all set once you apply.
