Trying to take ownership of system .dll files to add custome themes.

I am trying to take ownership of some of my system files in order to grant administrative permission to change the name of the files and replace them with customized versions. Everytime I do this, Right after I take ownership and grant permission to ExplorerFrame, or any of the other files, I cant click on any of the other "edit" options to take ownership of any of the other needed files. I could REALLy use some help here. I know its a touchy task to take on, especially with a low experience level in this, but it seems fairly straight forward and cut and dry.

First thing you should do is create a restore point System Restore Point - Create

Sometimes I have had to turn off UAC to get it to work properly and then turn it back on when done. User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Then look at post number six in this thread will show you how.
