Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have.

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

I always use the User not the Administrator, so looking at yours I would use the second one down. Here is a screenshot of what I would use.

1-what is the "system" user?
2- i mean for example for .ocx .dat .ini files if they do not have full controll can we use your method to change the permission of them to full control?

I am not sure it must be just the system.
#2
Yes anything you want to change that needs permission that would be a way to do it, make sure you keep a copy of the original so that it is not lost.
