P.S. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.
You are just determined to make your life difficult.

You have taken ownership of a folder whose owner should be TrustedInstaller which is a special account used by Microsoft. Don't be surprised if you are plagued with occasional problems.

Next time you get such a wild idea, let us know what your objective is and perhaps we can help you.

For right now, I'm going to suggest that you choose a restore point prior to your "taking ownership". After doing that, let us know what the real problem is.
