You're welcome.

FWIW, security on NT is like a network firewall where a specific host
(Administrator) is granted explicit access to every service and object
behind the wall. If you remove the rule that allows admin users' access
to a service then that service is inaccessible to admin users. The rule
must be restored before Administrator can access and manipulate the service.

It's a very different model from anything POSIX-like.

Why, yes, it would. It drove me nuts the first time I encountered it.
