I completely agree. You don't want to take ownership just to do it. You need to do it ONLY when there is an absolute need. I have seen many people destroy their computer doing this without taking in consideration the consequences of taking ownership away from an account that needs it. These permissions were put in place by Microsoft for a reason (with many years of study). Most of the permissions are there to protect the machine so it will run safely and efficiently and so the end-user canít break it. Ė I added some REP.
