Welcome to the Seven Forums
From the tutorial you used
Quote:
Application files, (EX: BAT, CMD, CPL, EXE, and MSC) will still have Run as administrator instead of Take Ownership in the context menu.
Look at post #6 Basic Networking Information it will show you how to Take ownership and give yourself permissions of system files (.dll, .exe, ect.)

or u can just use cmd:
1. navigate to directory or file to take ownership of (for entire computer cd C:\)
2. TAKEOWN /F [FILENAME] /R /D Y - put * as filename if u want all the files and folders in the directory
3. Wait till it is finished.
MAKE SURE U RUN CMD AS ADMINISTRATOR FOR BEST RESULTS!
