Go to Start/Run, and type : GPEDIT.MSC Local Computer Policy> Computer Configuration> Windows Settings> Security Settings> Local
Policies> Security Options> System Objects: Default owner for objects created by members of the Administrators Group. Set this to
"Administrators group" instead of "Object Creator".
