ownership and uac

I have my UAC all the way down and cannot figure how to take ownership of folders. I have a windows.old and a windows.old.000 and I want to delete one of them.

Thanks!

Hi Edicus,

Install this reg file in the attached zip. Then right click on the folder and 'take ownership'
The other reg file will remove the functionality if you no longer want it.
