Which is exactly why Takeown should not be passed out like a candy cure all.

If someone would have asked first,, which folders,,, we could ahve saved them some problems.

The times I've seen people wrongly advised to take ownership of their C: folder, Windows folder etc..

Total calamity remains only a few key strokes away!
