An easy way that usually works to fix this problem is to use the tutorial below to take ownership. It allows you to easily add/remove "take ownership" items to the explorer right click context menu:

TAKEOWN [/S system [/U username [/P [password]]]]
/F filename [/A] [/R [/D prompt]]
Description:
This tool allows an administrator to recover access to a file that
was denied by re-assigning file ownership.
Parameter List:
/S system Specifies the remote system to
connect to.
/U [domain\]user Specifies the user context under
which the command should execute.
/P [password] Specifies the password for the
given user context.
Prompts for input if omitted.
/F filename Specifies the filename or directory
name pattern. Wildcard "*" can be used
to specify the pattern. Allows
sharename\filename.
/A Gives ownership to the administrators
group instead of the current user.
/R Recurse: instructs tool to operate on
files in specified directory and all
subdirectories.
/D prompt Default answer used when the current user
does not have the "list folder" permission
on a directory. This occurs while operatin
recursively (/R) on sub-directories. Valid
values "Y" to take ownership or "N" to skip
/? Displays this help message.
NOTE: 1) If /A is not specified, file ownership will be given to the
current logged on user.
2) Mixed patterns using "?" and "*" are not supported.
3) /D is used to suppress the confirmation prompt.
Examples:
TAKEOWN /?
TAKEOWN /F lostfile
TAKEOWN /F \\system\share\lostfile /A
TAKEOWN /F directory /R /D N
TAKEOWN /F directory /R /A
TAKEOWN /F *
TAKEOWN /F C:\Windows\System32\acme.exe
TAKEOWN /F %windir%\*.txt
TAKEOWN /S system /F MyShare\Acme*.doc
TAKEOWN /S system /U user /F MyShare\foo.dll

Hi

The OP doesn't need to take ownership if he is the admin he can go into the cpanel?users>change another account>make admin. If he is admin have him upload a snip so we can look at it, It should look like the enclosed snip

Just enable the real admin account and then add in security tab in properties of a drive grant yourself full control and set yourself as owner, you can do anything you want

I just found out this myself, finally I am in control and I dont get nagged about anything unless the file is in use.

I always was curious on what windows was hiding from me behind those secret folders that I could never get to see inside.
