Windows 7: Cannot take ownership even though I'm admin

Cannot take ownership even though I'm admin

Hello,
First of all I have no idea which category this lies under. So I'm hoping this one is okay.

I downloaded and installed a new theme on my computer (Windows 7) which went fine. But I also wanted to get the borders and arrows. Here comes the problem; I know I have to replace the "ExplorerFrame.dll" with the new one from the theme. But first of all I can't rename it and I definitely can't replace it. I can't take ownership either.



As you can see it's not an option for me even though I am the administrator of this computer. Oh, and my computer runs in Danish as you can see! Hope you still can see what's going on Anyone who can help? Thanks in advance!

To properly change a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the old file and then copy in the new one look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information
